COYOTE SIGHTINGS

There have been several reports in the local media recently regarding Inverness neighborhoods that are experiencing significant issues with coyotes infiltrating their area and killing small pets. Reports have stated that there may be as many 40 or 50 animals in the Inverness area. A program to trap these animals is underway.

An email was circulated by the Meadowbrook HOA on August 2 to pass this information to Meadowbrook residents. In response to this email, we have had several reports from residents about coyote sightings in the our area. These appear to be isolated sightings of single animals.

The HOA will continue to monitor this situation. Please report any coyote sightings to the Meadowbrook HOA through the "Make a Suggestion" link in the "Request and Report Forms" section below.

We urge all residents to be cautious about leaving your pets outside and unattended after dark.

Burning Leaves and Yard Debris

NO Burning of leaves, limbs or debris is allowed per the MBHO Covenants at anytime during the year.

Notice to Homeowners and Area Realtors

The Meadowbrook Homeowners Association asks for your cooperation when holding an Open House. In an effort to keep Meadowbrook beautiful, please observe the following guidelines:

  • Directional real estate signs can only be posted for Open Houses. Directional signs that advertise a home for sale are not allowed.
  • Directional signs for Open Houses may be placed in the neighborhood beginning at noon the Friday before the Open House and must be removed as soon as the Open House is over on Sunday.
  • Please do not put balloons or any other "eye catching" items on the street signs. You may place such items on your directional signs.
  • As a courtesy, please get the permission of the homeowner to place a directional sign in their yard.

**The MBHO reserves the right to take up any real estate and/or directional signs once the Open House is over on Sunday and signs that are not in compliance with covenants.

Our ZIP Code Determines Sales Taxes:

The following is from the U.S. Postal Service official ZIP code directory: If your ZIP code is 352xx, the postal service preferred city is Birmingham. It is not mandatory. As an example, our ZIP code is 35242, and Meadow Brook is our acceptable community name.

Many in the metro Birmingham area, while not residents of the city of Birmingham, mistakenly use Birmingham as their city name. This has resulted in loss of tax dollars for our county and puts your money in the pockets of the city of Birmingham.

If we order an item via the Internet on which sales tax is collected, and it is shipped to my address in Meadow Brook, the 5% sales tax goes to Shelby County, not Birmingham with its higher tax rate.

All residents in the metro area with 35242 in their ZIP code who do not live in the city of Birmingham should ensure their community name is correct in their address.
