You may be provided with a plat of your property, but unless the land has been recently surveyed and pins placed by a licensed surveyor, you cannot assume that the plat or existing property pins are accurate. Many of the original property pins are still in existence on properties. They are made of rebar and can often be located with the use of a metal detector. If your pins cannot be located, then a survey may be necessary. Fences that separate properties are often misaligned with the property lines, so it is important to know where your property pins are located in order to avoid problems later.
The track, block and lot number is a legal description of your property.

1. Drain water from swimming pool and water sprinkler supply lines following manufacturer's or installer's directions. Do not put antifreeze in these lines unless directed. Antifreeze is environmentally harmful, and is dangerous to humans, pets, wildlife, and landscaping.2. Remove, drain, and store hoses used outdoors. Close inside valves supplying outdoor hose bibs. Open the outside hose bibs to allow water to drain. Keep the outside valve open so that any water remaining in the pipe can expand without causing the pipe to break.3. Check around the home for other areas where water supply lines are located in unheated areas. Look in the basement, crawl space, attic, garage, and under kitchen and bathroom cabinets. Both hot and cold water pipes in these areas should be insulated.4. Consider installing specific products made to insulate water pipes like a "pipe sleeve" or installing UL-listed "heat tape," "heat cable," or similar materials on exposed water pipes. Newspaper can provide some degree of insulation and protection to exposed pipes – even ¼” of newspaper can provide significant protection in areas that usually do not have frequent or prolonged temperatures below freezing.5. Keep garage doors closed if there are water supply lines in the garage.6. Open kitchen and bathroom cabinet doors to allow warmer air to circulate around the plumbing. Be sure to move any harmful cleaners and household chemicals up out of the reach of children.7. When the weather is very cold outside, let the cold water drip from the faucet served by exposed pipes. Running water through the pipe - even at a trickle - helps prevent pipes from freezing.8. Keep the thermostat set to the same temperature both during the day and at night. By temporarily suspending the use of lower nighttime temperatures, you may incur a higher heating bill, but you can prevent a much more costly repair job if pipes freeze and burst.9. If you will be going away during cold weather, leave the heat on in your home, set to a temperature no lower than 55° F.
Sewer backups are usually unexpected and always create a mess. At best the backup requires an unpleasant cleanup but sometimes it can be expensive.
Generally, most issues are within the house plumbing or private sanitary service laterals. Stopping all water use will stop the backup.
If the sewer backs up on your property, you are responsible to pay the bill. This is why it is important to make sure lines are clear and your homeowner’s insurance covers sewer backups.
Blockages can occur for numerous reasons. Some of the most common causes are tree roots, grease and toys or objects inserted by children who may drop them down the drains. To avoid home sewer problems, you may want to contact a local plumber to clear these roots from your lateral and prevent your drains from backing up. Dispose of grease and fats in the trash, not down the drain. Do not dispose of any type of wipes down the toilet, they are not sanitary friendly.
Cooking grease, hair, food particles, toilet paper, and roots often cause sluggish drains or line blockages. If they happen near the drain opening or toilet bowl, a plunger may be effective. However, if the problem is some distance into the drain line, it may require a plumber to locate and resolve.
Many homes have a cleanout and it is usually located near the foundation of the house.First check the cleanout to see if it has water in it. If there is no water, then you know the blockage is somewhere in the house plumbing. If there is water standing in the cleanout, the blockage is most likely in the line from house to the main. Under these circumstances, you should discontinue using your facilities and contact a plumber.

At registration, you are given the information regarding the program you signed up for; where the class is, what time and the dates that the class will be, and if there is anything you need to bring. Consider all classes a "go" unless you hear from us. The only reason we might contact you would be if the class is canceled due to low enrollment, or if something came up regarding the teacher of the program.
Please call the Parks office at (719) 547-7400 and we can relay a message to the teacher. We do not give out the teacher's phone numbers but we can email them quickly for you and even have them call you back if you'd like.
We know that there are times when finances can be a struggle, especially if you have more than 1 child that you want to get into a program or class. We would be happy to take payments. Most of our classes run between 6-12 weeks and we can figure out a monthly payment for you. At present, our Karate and Dance instructors offer a multi-family discount too that will help. Please let us know if that might be your case, we don't want to turn anyone away because they can't paid the full price up front.
It's nice to know that you enjoy a program and come back each session. We do registrations this way because our teachers get paid for that particular period of time. Some people don't sign up again and some do, so it easier all around to know the instructors are paid for each of their sessions for those students that signed up for those class dates.
Most of our classes have a limited capacity, so it would be inappropriate to take early registrations and fill them up before the date stated on our flyers. We want to make it fair for everyone so that is why it's "first-come first-serve" on the Mondays when registrations open. Our online registrations open at 7:00am and follow the same dates for registering like our seasonal flyers state.
At the end of registration, kids are placed onto teams and schedules are made in time for the coach meeting. Coaches are instructed to call or email the team players and give them the information regarding team name, start date and time, and location of the program. The first day you will get the tshirt ordered and schedules for the remainder of the sport program.
During registration, you will see a "special request" field. In that field write or type the names of a player or coach that your player wants to be with. Sometimes unforeseen circumstances might arise and we may not be able to fulfill your request, but we will try.
Our Sports Coordinator or Parks Director will determine if the weather is bad enough to cancel a program. In turn, the coach will be called and he will then inform his team. If you don't hear from a coach, please call the parks office at (719-547-7400) where we will have a recorded message informing of any cancellation. We are also capable of contacting KKTV Channel 11 to put our information on the station scroll.
On the first day the coach will hand out the tshirts that you ordered. The only real need would be shin guards if playing in soccer. Other than that, tennis shoes are good to wear for any sport program.
