             Manager, replacing Chris Lagerbloom, who is returning to   “QAlert” number, which is a reference number that will track
             his hometown in Georgia. I briefed Greg on a few of the   activity and progress from issue to resolution. Greg expects
             major issues of concern in our neighborhood: traffic calming,   this to dramatically increase accountability.
             vacation rentals and security. He offered encouragement on
             all these issues.                                      Plenty more is happening, but that’s enough until next time.
                                                                    Enjoy your summer!

                                                                    Coral Ridge Country Club Estates
             On vacation rentals, he shared a social media post that the   Community Association
             City uses to let neighbors know about reporting vacation rental

             included advertising to officers in New York and Chicago. This
             will increase overall police presence and have the ancillary
             benefit of increasing the pool of officers available for the off-
             duty security patrols.
