3) Everything is growing like crazy, especially the grass and the weeds! Weekly lawn mowing will be required for the next several months! Dandelions may be pretty and good for bees, but they are not welcome in lawns and planter beds! And if we see them dotting your landscaping during our drive bys, you will receive a notice. Please be diligent in pulling them up, being sure to get all of the tap root, ideally before they bloom and turn to seed.
4) If your gutters are full of leaves and debris, you may notice them overflowing when it rains, or sagging from weight, or growing plants. If you witness any of these tell-tale signs, please take a photo of the evidence and submit it to us through the property meld system on our website so that we can issue a work order.
5) Maintenance would like to remind you that an AC unit that is not working does NOT qualify as an emergency. Our office makes it our goal to have those issues resolved within 7-10 business days from the time that our office is notified of the issue.
If you have any maintenance concerns for your yard or your home, please CONTACT US! All maintenance concerns should be submitted through property meld, accessed on our website, under the Tenant Tab – Maintenance Request – Submit Work Order.

COVID Outlook – What’s the Latest News With COVID?
By Kristal Clark
As the United States continues to work on the vaccination process all over the country, more places are beginning to open and lift mask mandates. In Idaho, we have seen a total of 197,533 confirmed cases of the novel coronavirus, and 2,179 deaths statewide. On the bright side, Idaho has remained one of the states with fewer confirmed cases than many others. For more information on coronavirus in Idaho please visit Idaho Coronavirus Map: Tracking the Trends – Mayo Clinic.
Idaho has vaccinated 1,031,321,779 people that have received both doses of their shots, making them the safest in the fight against COVID. There are 2,077,602,544 people in Idaho who have had their first dose administered only. This will not protect them as efficiently as completing both shots but is still more safe than an individual without the vaccine completely. The CDC is still learning about how effective the vaccine is against new variants, and how long a vaccinated person is immune for. They do know that it takes 2 weeks for the vaccine to fully take effect in the body.
Now that the world has begun to get a handle on the virus, we have been thrown a curveball in the form of the Delta variant. This variant of COVID is still a mystery to scientists in many ways. However, they do know that Delta is more contagious than the other virus strains. It is spread among people that are not masked or vaccinated 50% more than the original Alpha virus. For more information on the Delta variant, please visit 5 Things To Know About the Delta Variant > News > Yale Medicine
Although many things about this virus are still unknown, there are a few things that we do know can help keep us safe.
- Get vaccinated! To achieve herd immunity, we must first have as many people vaccinated as possible.
- Keep social distancing! Even if you are vaccinated, it is a good idea to continue social distancing as much as possible.
- Continue to mask up! Even if you are vaccinated, it is a good idea to wear your mask in areas where you might potentially encounter unvaccinated people.
- Wash your hands often! After you have been in public, coughed, sneezed, or blowing your nose.
- Avoid touching your face as much as possible!
Overall, we have seen a positive change in the coronavirus history. We are seeing fewer cases across the United States, especially in the places with higher vaccination rates. We can only go up from here! If we all continue to do our part in the fight against COVID, we will get past this!
