Trash at end of the road – UPDATED

Someone has decided instead of taking their trash to the city land fill (which is free if you live in Grant County) they decided to dump it at the end of the street. It has been reported to the Grant County Sheriffs office along with surveillance video of the light colored suv/pickup with truck cap type vehicle with trailer. It was dropped on a 5:32 AM Monday morning, 4/6/15. If you see people going down the road towards the end with load of “stuff”, get the vehicle description & license number. If after they leave there is trash, report it. Called disposal to come pick it up. Will most likely be next week before it is picked up. SR2948 – Also reported pothole on the southbound lane and as you turn into the sub-division along with the sign that is still down. Sign is now back up. SR2948 has been cleaned AGAIN as of April 10th 2015. Wonder how many of our fellow resident will throw their trash on the road now that it is cleaned up. Wonder if people have trash cans at their homes or ever noticed the trash cans at the gas station when they buy gas. Or maybe they just love to see their trash in the ditches along the road they drive. Who knows what goes on in the minds of these people. WOW the clean up lasted for about 3 days then small stuff started. Now we even have a pick-up truck bed liner on the side of the road.

UPDATE: Mattress is gone !

SPEED BUMPS — Do you want them – or not?

Contact Grant County Sheriffs office and start reporting speeders so maybe we can stop the madness before a child gets hit.

SPEED BUMPS: We are working to get them installed if people do not slow down. They will be the type that you will slow down and there will be several of them. You can thank a few of your neighbors for this.

We have many new & young children “and” pets so SLOW DOWN.

If you do not want speed bumps on Clairborne Drive then spread the word for people to SLOW DOWN.

There are a few who for whatever reason feel the need to go well above 20 MPH. You may know who they are.

Are you adding to your property this year?

Spring & summer are the times people decide to add to their property, make changes and spruce things up. BEFORE YOU DO you may want to refresh your memory to avoid any problems or issues under the restrictions. It is cheaper and less headache to ask before you end up having to remove or move items such as a building that is not in compliance or not even allowed.

Lots with 1 acre can construct an out building but there are specifics so before you do – read up. “Any accessory building or outbuilding must be constructed of wood, brick or stone and must be a design consistent with the main dwelling.”

If you decide on a fence it must be a “split rail type fence” which means wood between each posts.

Split rail type fence

Spread the word about this web page. It provides useful information on the subdivision for all residents.

If you see someone putting up the wrong type items you can and should in a very respectful & tactful way inform them of their error. If after that they do not conform you can inform Claiborne Estates of the problem so it can be corrected before too much effort or money is put into a project that will be required to be removed. You can also use the CONTACT TAB on this web page.

Hope everyone has a wonderful SPRING & SUMMER 2015.

Check out Wet & Forget – it is so easy

Wet & Forget

Click the below ling to be taken to the web page for Wet & Forget. Wet & forget can be used to remove black streaks on roofs, mold on decks, siding, bricks, rocks, concrete patios & driveways, etc. The names says it all. Follow instructions carefully. Then you WET and then FORGET.


ApplicationApply Wet & Forget Outdoor with a garden sprayer. Dilute 1 part Wet & Forget Outdoor to 5 parts water.


Wet & Forget Outdoor Concentrate Fill Garden Sprayer With Water To
2 1/2 cups (20 oz.) 1 gallon mark
5 cups (40 oz.) 2 gallon mark



Apply Wet & Forget Outdoor to a dry surface in order to penetrate the stain completely. Saturate the surface completely with Wet & Forget Outdoor to remove moss, algae, lichen, mold or mildew stains. For best results, apply Wet & Forget Outdoor on a cool dry day with no chance of rain for four to five hours after application. Morning or evening is best. This will ensure that the surface being treated stays wet for an extended period while Wet & Forget Outdoor begins breaking down the growth. Vertical surfaces that don’t have good exposure to the elements might require some assistance using either a water hose or a light brushing. If an area is particularly bad, apply Wet & Forget again approximately one month after the first application.

After the stains have disappeared, use Wet & Forget Outdoor as a maintenance tool. Re-apply at the first sign of new growth to keep stains from coming back. No scrubbing necessary–just spray and forget it!

Treating Moss: To get rid of moss, completely saturate the moss making sure the Wet & Forget Outdoor soaks through and comes in contact with the surface the moss has attached itself to. Over the next few days or weeks, you’ll notice the moss turning brown, curling up and detaching from the surface. The wind and rain will help wash away any remaining moss.

Treating Lichen: Lichen is a complex combination of fungus and algae that have learned to live together, forming a unique type of growth. Lichen can cause pitting on outdoor surfaces. The symbiotic relationship between the fungus and algae makes lichen very hardy and difficult to get rid of. But don’t worry–even this tough growth is no match for Wet & Forget Outdoor. Use a garden sprayer to thoroughly saturate the lichen with a solution of 1 part Wet & Forget Outdoor and 5 parts water. Wait 15 minutes, and spray a second time. This will allow the Wet & Forget Outdoor to penetrate the lichen’s 2 layers. It is best to spray lichen on a day that is not too sunny, to prevent rapid evaporation and to allow Wet & Forget more time to work.
