Synergy of services for enhance security

After multiple meetings and months of implementation, the BOD has finalized the various contracts with our primary security provider (precinct 4 constable’s office) and a high tech monitoring system.  The BOD asked the constable’s office what would work best.  We listened.  The synergy of the systems provides us with probably the most advanced system used by any subdivision in Montgomery county.   Please note that the guard shack is still manned on a random schedule and that the presence of a car on the parking is not an indication of a guard being in the office.  Please do not stop at the guard shack.  For obvious reasons not all details will be disclosed!  Please note that this system cost will be totally integrated in next year assessment. Our bill will be reduced to one assessment only. We will not have a separate constable assessment for starting in 2021. This is a direct saving for enhanced services.
  • Constable presence 7 days/week
  • Precinct 4 can give you a security analysis for free.
  • Monitoring and remote alerting system for day & night 24/7 coverage
  • 24/7 HD Video in multiple locations
  • Guard Shack manned on a random schedule
  • Future changes for yet further improvements are likely
So, in 2 years, we moved from a non members approved “mandatory fee” (2019 and prior) to a voluntary fee (in 2020) and now to an integrated fee starting in 2021. As promised, the BOD will be able to integrate the fee by trimming the main expenses across all large and small budget items. Please note that we get occasionally a question about putting a gate at the entrance.  For 2 reasons that is not possible: for one, the roads are public and do not belong to Riverwalk.  Second,  it would be practically impossible due to the bottle neck at our single entrance.We ask residents to refrain from advertising our surveillance system on ND or other public(; )forum.
