You may have noticed some additional technology being used in our post office. We reintroduced the scanners which have been missing since the hurricane. Now, the post office scans a package when it arrives in Bay Point and scans it when it is picked up by the resident. No more guessing if it actually arrived or not, was picked up or not, or whether it was returned. Our plan is to expand the use of the scanner to make the postal operation even more efficient.
Security in Bay Point is always a priority. There have been a number of unfavorable comments about our efforts to improve the security and safety of all residents and visitors to Bay Point. Nothing is done that does not have safety and security as the priority. Nothing is done just for convenience or inconvenience. Reckless driving in our community will not be tolerated. Violations on entry through our gates will be justifiably cited and no amount of threats to our office staff and officers will prevent the citations from being imposed. Recent random tragic events in several parts of the country tell us to pay attention to our own security and safety. No one in those other incidents believed they were in harm’s way when they left their homes that day. Last summer saw a great deal of civil unrest. So far we have been spared those incidents. We are not suggesting it is our turn. But we will not leave ourselves completely vulnerable either. Owners pay for a secure place to live and owners count that we are prepared for any violation of that security. There are safety rules, and we will enforce those rules. Vigilance and preparedness are not inconvenient.
