State Fair reduced prices

The Indiana State Fair is one of Indiana’s most treasured traditions. It brings Hoosiers together from all corners of the state to celebrate our history and our communities, and to partake in the occasional elephant ear.

It’s our tradition to offer Hoosiers half-price admission on myBMV.com Discount Day! On Wednesday, August 13, you, your family and your friends can be admitted for $5 each.

Print the myBMV.com Discount Day coupon, and bring it with you to the fair. Everyone can take advantage of this special offer, so be sure to send or forward this email to all of your family, friends and your neighbors.

During your visit to the fair, make sure to stop by the myBMV.com booth in the Expo Hall. Our team members can assist you with one of our many services available at our booth’s laptops or kiosks, such as renewing your registration or driver’s license. We can also answer your questions about BMV services.

If you haven’t done so already, sign up for online BMV services at myBMV.com. It is the fastest, easiest way to renew your plates or driver’s license, view your driver record or complete other business with the BMV.

Break in at WP last night

A neighbor reports there was a break in last night:

“To all, we had a break-in at Ooley’s house either last night or early this morning. They entered through a window in the back of the house. We do not know what was taken because Ooley’s are on the way home now. This is the house at the corner of Whispering Way and Wayward Wind right across from Duell’s. A red car with two young men was noticed in the area yesterday but we do not know if it is in anyway related. They were parked at that corner for several minutes. Please put this on the tom toms so everyone will be alerted”

Looking at our Directory, the Ooley’s home’s address is: 10215 Wayward Wind Dr. and Steve Duell’s house is at 2364 Whispering Way, so now we have two vehicles to be on the look out: a white van with a Jeff Bridges look alike driver and a red car with tow youngsters.
Thanks

Heavy trash collection

Now that we are doing some Spring cleaning, it is good to know how to dispose of unwanted heavy items:
Heavy Trash
Each Indianapolis household may place a maximum of two (2) items of heavy trash out for collection each month. If your home is serviced by DPW crews, heavy trash is collected on a specific day each month. If your home is serviced by a private contractor, heavy trash can be placed by the curb once a month on any of your regular trash days. (Whispering Pines is serviced by Republic, a private contractor)

Acceptable heavy trash items:
• Household furnishings – couches, desks, tables, chairs, dressers.
•Appliances (without Freon-gas refrigerant) – stoves, water heaters, water softeners. -Appliances containing Freon require special handling-
To have a Freon unit collected, empty and disable the appliance and set it out at the curb or alley where your trash is normally picked up. Call the MAC at 327-4622 to arrange pickup. Freon units do not count as part of the monthly two heavy trash items allotment.
•Disassembled bicycles and swing sets.
•Automobile/truck tires mounted on their rims/wheels.
•Lawnmowers – must be drained of all gas and oil.

Place all items on a stable surface. Be sure to secure and/or remove loose parts such as doors or trim. Items considered unacceptable for regular trash pickup are also unacceptable for heavy trash pickup. If legally unacceptable items are left for pickup, a DPW informational tag will notify you how to meet the pickup requirements.
Thanks

Mayor Ballard and DPW

March 11, 2014
Dear Neighbors,

Join Mayor Greg Ballard and Department of Public Works (DPW) officials tonight at 6pm at Christians United Church, 900 N. Mitthoeffer Rd. for a public meeting about RebuildIndy 2. Mayor Ballard has a plan to invest $350 million over three years into our neighborhoods and he would like your input. RebuildIndy 2 would allow DPW to address all of the City’s highest priority street resurfacing needs and invest more than $50 million in sidewalks—increasing pedestrian and driver safety around Marion County. This has been an extraordinarily harsh winter, and it has taken a serious toll on our neighborhood streets and major thoroughfares.

I hope you will join Mayor Ballard to learn more about RebuildIndy 2 and offer your thoughts and suggestions on the work our community needs most!
