Bridle Path Cleanup Process

In an effort to streamline the Bridle Path Cleanup Process and to reduce time and expense spent on notification letters, the following process will be effective immediately.

A notice will be sent in the billing prior to Bulk Trash Pick Up stating the following:

It is the Homeowner’s responsibility to maintain the bridle path in a manner that does not prevent the irrigator from accessing the valves for irrigation, and that does not cause damage to the vehicles or pose a hazard to employees.  The standard for all homeowners is that vegetation in excess of 6 inches in height, 6 inches protruding from the fence line, and overhanging branches less than 13 ½ feet in height must be removed.

Immediately following Bulk Trash Pick Up (date), properties not in compliance with the stated standards will be identified for cleanup to be done by a commercial company and will be billed for the service provided.  The homeowner will receive a notification stating what date the work will be done and the amount that will be billed. There will be no other notices.  If the homeowner cleans up their bridle path prior to the commercial company doing the work, they must notify the Irrigation District at 602 938 8760 or at sbfidphx@qwestoffice.net  to prevent the company from doing the work and incurring the charge.                                   Approved 03/03/2015
