Work has begun on the south side of the Roanoke Rd/Hwy 170 intersection. The northbound right turn lane will begin further south, and the road will be widened to accommodate the increased traffic. The paving work should be finished by the end of the day on Tuesday, April 23rd, weather permitting. 

The striping is scheduled for Wednesday, April 24th weather permitting. 

April weather is always wild, so thank you for your patience during this worthwhile project.

Plastic Easter Eggs Are Not Recyclable

Updated April 11th, 2019

Per Republic Services:

An Easter egg hunt with colorful plastic eggs is a spring tradition, but you may want to consider an eco-friendly update this year. Plastic eggs are not recyclable, and some have been shown to contain lead paint and the harmful chemical BPA.

If you need to buy new eggs this year, look for ones labeled “BPA-Free.” An even safer option are the wooden, ceramic and cloth eggs available online and at craft stores. Many of these eggs have hollow centers so you can still fill them with treats for the kiddos. Whichever eggs you choose for your egg hunt, make sure they all get collected to avoid accidentally littering.

If you’re retiring your plastic eggs this year, either donate them or use them to make decorations such as Easter centerpieces and wreaths. Check out this article from Pop Sugar for more ideas.


Winter Quarter Averages Will Show on April Bill

Updated April 3, 2019

Every year, residential sewer charges are determined by your water usage during the Winter Quarter (December, January, February). We calculated every resident's average during the month of March, and you will see the changes on your March bill, issued April 8th. 

If you are new to Westlake, you will be assigned the system average (15,000) until you have resided in Westlake through a complete Winter Quarter. Your sewer charges may still vary, as the system average is the maximum you can be charged. So if you use less than 15,000 gallons of water in a month, you will be charged according to your usage. 

Please see our dedicated Winter Quarter Average page for more details.
