New- Firestone Farms Preferred Trash Provider
In a recent HOA statement, you were mailed information regarding lower cost trash service for the neighborhood similar to a contract that Prestwick and Stonehaven currently have. Thank you to those who have switched over; it will help reduce trash pick up truck traffic on the streets which will be quieter, safer and less wear on the infrastructure.
As residents of Firestone Farm, Republic Services has committed to providing weekly trash pick up at a significant savings; a cost of $12.90 a month for a 2-year guarantee rate price.Â Many in our community already utilize their services, highly recommend them and look forward to the monthly cost savings. In addition to the cost savings, we will benefit from less trash pick up truck traffic on our roads which is safer, quieter and less wear and tear on our streets.
In that HOA statement was a proposal agreement that each household neededÂ to sign and send back to Bob Pasko, Property Manager, P.O. Box 779, Wexford, Pa 15090 by July 15, 2018.Â The new service and savings began August 1, those who turned in your paperwork to Bob are now receiving service. If you’re new to the neighborhood or just didn’t get to sign up, remember to cancel your current trash service with any other provider if you are not already using Republic Services.
- Thereafter, your quarterly HOA fee will include trash service and be $218.70 per quarter beginning October 2018.
- Due October 1 â October, November, December HOA & Trash is $218.70. Please remit to Bob Pasko as you currently do for HOA assessments.
If you need further clarification or understanding, please refer to the provider information that Republic Services has detailed on the included mailer regarding trash pick up information. You can also contact the following people:

Natural Gas Supplier
As you are aware, All American Energy is our natural gas supplier. Their contract with Columbia Gas to transport gas to Firestone farms expires in November. Due to the death of the principal of All American Energy, continued supply is questionable. Â Columbia Gas is evaluating whether to take over the existing lines. Their rates for natural gas are cheaper and all residents have an opportunity to save money on future gas bills, have a more reliable and more certain supplier in the future.
Thank you if you signed the petition and sent the application for service with Columbia Gas. Â Response time has ended, however if you would like to reference, you will find a link below for both the Petition and Application (Residential Performance Commitment).
Pool Deck and Wall Update
You may have noticed the new concrete surfaceÂ around the pool deck.
As part of the Homeowners Associationâs ongoing maintenance program, the following tasks wereÂ completed:
- One section of the wall only had a footer about 15 inches below the ground so the wall was tornÂ down and rebuilt with a proper footer.
- The concrete deckÂ wasÂ replaced where it was damaged, the cap on the top of the wall wasÂ replaced, and the rest of the stone repaired.
- The dirt level wasÂ raised on the outside of the fence as a little more insurance to protect the footer.
Similar to the repairs done to the exterior of the building last year that were caused by faulty construction, Firestone Homestead LLC paidÂ for 100% of the repairs. The Homeowners Association was notÂ charged for for these repairs.
