Garage Sale Preparations

Here are 5 things to know when participating in a subdivision wide garage sale:

  1. Plan ahead. Decide what you want to sell, and start pricing your items early. This will help you stay organized and make the most of your time at the sale.
  2. Get the word out. Advertise your garage sale in local newspapers, online, and on social media. The more people who know about it, the more likely you are to sell your items.
  3. Set up early. Arrive at your garage sale early to set up and get everything ready. This will give you plenty of time to greet customers and answer their questions.
  4. Be friendly and helpful. Smile, make eye contact, and be helpful to your customers. This will make them more likely to buy from you.
  5. Be patient. It may take some time to sell your items, so be patient and don’t get discouraged. The more people who see your sale, the more likely you are to make a sale.

Here are some additional tips for participating in a subdivision wide garage sale:

  • Price your items competitively. You want to sell your items, but you don’t want to give them away. Do some research to find out what similar items are selling for in your area.
  • Offer discounts. If you’re not getting any bites, consider offering discounts on multiple items or on items that have been sitting for a while.
  • Take credit cards. Many people don’t carry cash these days, so it’s a good idea to have a credit card reader on hand.
  • Have fun! Garage sales are a great way to declutter your home, meet your neighbors, and make some extra cash. So relax, enjoy yourself, and make some sales!

Secure your Recycling Please

Please make sure that your recyclable materials are secured when leaving the container out for pick up.  What’s happening is the majority of the material blows out of the containers and ends up in one of our StoneRidge neighbors yards.  That person then has to pick all of the trash up and secure it for pick up – EVERY WEEK (this has been happening for years).

Please do your part securing your recycling so that NONE of it can blow out of  container.

2015 Backflow Information

This information can be downloaded and printed by clicking HERE to open the original PDF

Irrigation systems will need to be turned on by May 15th for the inspection to take place. If your system is not turned on when the inspector shows up they will charge you an additional fee of $45 for a return trip. Note: You do not have to wait for the inspection to take place before you start using your irrigation system.

  • You do not have to be home for the inspection to take place unless your backflow device is inside.
  • I will provide the inspector with the list of homes to be inspected along with an inspection form. I already have a copy of all inspection forms. To be included in the bulk inspection process you will have to get me a check made payable to “Arms & Cole” in the amount of $17 by May 15th
  • If the inspector identifies that your device is in need of repair there will be an additional charge to you from Arms & Cole. They will notify you prior to any repairs and give you an estimated cost of the repair. Each year about 15 systems fail the inspection and require minor repairs.
  • You may choose to have another company/individual complete your inspection at their rates. Contact the Department of Public Works at 995-6039 for a list of approved inspectors. Let me know if you choose another option and I will get your inspection form to you.
  • Payments will have to be in by May 15th to be included in the bulk inspection process. Please mail your payment to Granville Management Inc.
  • Inspections will take place on May 20th & 21st. The inspector will deliver the completed inspection form to DPW. You should not expect to be contacted by anyone unless there is a needed repair.

Should you have any questions or concerns about this matter, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Sincerely, Tim G. Webb Property Manager

General Halloween Information 2016


Halloween will be celebrated on Monday, October 31, 2016, within the city limits of Traverse City.  The Trick-or-Treating hours will be from 5:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m.

We ask the participating city residents to please turn porch lights on promptly at 5:00 p.m. and turn them off promptly at 8:00 p.m. 

The National Confectioners Association and the Chocolate Manufacturers Association have established the following safety tips to help make this Halloween a safe and enjoyable holiday for our children.



  • Use make-up or face paint instead of masks, but if masks are used, make sure they fit properly and have holes large enough for mouth and eyes.
  • Choose costumes that are marked flame retardant.
  • Wear light-colored clothing at night, short enough to prevent tripping.   Add reflective tape or reflectors to dark colored costumes. 
  • Make props such as daggers or swords out of cardboard, rather than metal or wood. 


  • Give and accept wrapped or packaged candy only.
  • Have children bring treats home for adult inspection before they are eaten. 
  •  Adults should accompany small and elementary school age children when they are trick-or-treating and send older children in groups.
  • Go out in daylight and carry a flashlight in case of delay.
  • Have children stay within the neighborhood; only visit homes you know.
  • Watch for traffic.
  • Keep costumed children away from pets.  The pet may not recognize the children and become frightened.

Have a safe and scary Halloween!!!
