Sent 2021-10-02: SEPO Complaint: Sunshine Flooded Streets & Speeding - 

Those of you currently physically residing at Sunshine are aware you had 4+ inches of rain yesterday. Even being up here in St. Louis, I know what that means, flooded streets. I'm glad to hear it is dried up today.

However, while the streets were flooded, there were apparently some folks 'speeding' on them even after signs to 'drive slow' and 'no wake' signs were put up on the flooded streets. Please remember this creates wakes that could cause damage to residents' property, ie skirtings.

Please be respectful of your neighbors' property, during flooding and always.

Thanks for your attention to this matter.     Beth Parrish (for SEPO Board)

 - COMPLETE by SEPO Board on Sep 28, 2021 - 

  1. Suggestion/Complaint/Idea - 

    • Community is divided and assaulting each other. We should work to find a mutual solution and not impose more mandates to restrict those Vaccinated and those Unvaccinated from co-mingling.
       

  2. Who has Responsibility -

    • 2021-09-27: Beth Parrish & Tony Tramel

    • 2021-09-28:

      • The resident who submitted this has been informed of the following via e-mail -

        • The Board is working to resolve any issues that may be causing you to feel the community is divided and assaulting each other. It appears you are under the impression there are forthcoming mandates to segregate vaccinated vs unvaccinated persons within the community. Let me assure you, if that is what you are hearing, that is definitely not the case. It is only rumors.

        • The SEPO Board position has not changed since the decisions made and published on May 20, 2021. The Web site states:
           

   The SEPO Board met earlier today
(May 20, 2021 @ 1:30 PM via Google Meet)

 

One of the agenda items was as follows:

Determine next steps (Review/Change or Not/Approve) SEPO Covid-19 Restrictions with discussion and potential Action.

During the discussion of this item, each board member voiced his/her opinion on what the next step should be pertaining to the current SEPO Covid-19 restrictions. At the end of this discussion, a motion was made and seconded to ‘remove’ all current SEPO Covid-19 restrictions. A formal vote was taken with the following results – YES from Beth Parrish, Larry Keller, Lenore Combs and Jean Burgoine & NO from Mecca Henry and Lyn Swonger. Since the vote was not a tie, President Tony Tramel did not vote.
