Reminders & Updates:
Memorial Day Office Hours
In observance of the upcoming holiday, the management office will be closed on Monday, May 30th. Should you require immediate assistance during the holiday or after regular business hours, please contact the 24/7 FirstService Customer Care Center at 703-385-1133. For follow up that can wait until the staff returns the next business day, you may e-mail the staff at email@example.com.
Wild Life Update
Snakes: Reports of snakes have been observed at Dolphin Beach and West Beach along the shoreline. Please be on the alert as you and your family are enjoying the beach over the weekend.
Mosquitos: The Prince William County Mosquito and Forest Pest Management branch will be conducting inspections at various sites throughout the summer to help alleviate mosquito populations in areas where water is stagnant. A recent inspection of the boat racks at West Beach identified numerous kayaks overturned and holding a significant amount of water. Stagnant water allows mosquitos to breed and can be a health concern for residents. With the busy summer season quickly approaching, please remember to check your stored boats and make sure they are not collecting water. For additional questions or information, please contact Prince William County Department of Public Works, Mosquito and Forest Pest Management at 703-792-6279.
Goose Control: A biologist from USDA Wildlife will be onsite in early June to conduct a survey of the geese population in Montclair and will provide a report with recommendations to control the geese population around the lake.
The MPOA landscaper, Brightview Landscape Services and their subcontractor TruGreen, will apply the post emergent turf application throughout the common areas on Wednesday, June 1st. Signs will be posted in these areas the morning before as they will be closed for Memorial Day. Please stay off the grass for at least 1-2 hours after treatment.
Community volunteers are vital to the success of MPOA events. We are seeking volunteers to help continue making enjoyable experiences for everyone who attends our events.

Committee Members Wanted!
The Communications, Covenants, and Signage Committees are looking for members to join. Here is a brief description of each committee:
Ad Hoc Signage Committee research, discuss, and will develop a plan to secure professional design options to replace current Montclair signs that are consistent in material, style, and theme, while also embodying the "Montclair Community." Signs for consideration are all entrance, beach, and event signs.
The Covenants Committee reviews Property Improvement Requests and assures that properties are maintained in a manner providing for visual harmony and soundness of repair, avoiding activities deleterious to the aesthetic or property values of the property, and promoting the general welfare and safety of the owners, their guests, and other invitees.
The Communications Committee provides creative and technical methods to enhance all avenues of communications between the Board of Directors and Members of the Association, as well as suggesting methods of facilitating information flow from sources outside of the Montclair community.
