College Courtyard Apartments - August 2018 Newsletter


City of Reno Party Ordinance

The Reno City Council approved the Social Host ordinance to provide criminal and administrative penalties for disruptive parties, and to help reduce underage drinking and related issues. The City will issue the property owner a citation and fine if a party is conducted that requires the Reno police to make a visit. As your leases clearly do not allow disruptive parties at the College Courtyard we should not have a problem. Please keep in mind,  however, that your leases clearly state that if we are fined by the City of Reno for a disruptive party we will pass the fine and an administrative penalty on the offending residents.

Interesting Fact: About 98% of the thoughts you have each day are the same thoughts you had the previous day.
 
Please Don’t Drink and Drive

For your safety and the safety of others, please don’t drink and drive. Your futures are too bright to be wasted by a DUI or worse. Get a designated driver, walk or call a taxi but please do not get behind the wheel of a car while under the influence.

Interesting Fact: Adult camels can drink 30 gallons (113 liters) of water in just 13 minutes.

.Message from Phyllis

I hope that all of you have had a wonderful summer. As the new school year is just weeks away, we are preparing for our annual influx of new students. For those of you who will be leaving us, please break down any boxes you put into the dumpster. We have arranged for daily pickup during the move-out and move-in period but the dumpster still fills up fast if boxes are not broken down. As always, it gets hectic around here during flip-week but our goal is to get the entire complex up to perfect so that the new students have a great new home. 

Safety is Important

The safety of our residents is of the highest priority. The College Courtyard Apartments are under 24-hour video surveillance and all entrances are gated. You can do your part to make sure the College Courtyard Apartments are a secure and safe place to live. Never give your key or garage transmitter to others. Please report any damage or repairs that may be necessary to maintain safe conditions. That would include lights out in the common areas, parking garage, stairwells, front entrance and laundry rooms. We also ask that when ever possible you walk in groups and never alone at night. The escort service number is 784-6808.

Laundry Rooms

Please be considerate of your neighbors and do not leave your clothes in the washers or dryers unattended after the washing and drying cycle.

Vacuum

A vacuum is available for your use. If you wish to borrow our vacuum it can be checked out at the office. Please return the vacuum immediately after use, as other students may need to use it.

No Hover Boards

Until a safe hover board is manufactured, they are banned from the College Courtyard Apartments. These devices have proved to be dangerous——especially when being charged. Having a hover board in your apartment could lead to eviction.

Loading Zone

Please be aware that the parking enforcement officers for the City of Reno will ticket cars that are parked in our loading zone for long periods of time. This ticketing will be done regardless of whether or not the car has a Seminary Avenue parking permit. This strict parking enforcement is being done at the request of the Postal Carriers, as they do not like restricted access to the building. All residents of the College Courtyard Apartments should appreciate this enforcement as it allows a convenient loading and unloading area for you, family and friends.

Interesting Fact: The hair on your head has a lifespan between 2 to 7 years. At the end of its life, the hair strand will fall out and another will start growing in its place.
 
Watch the Gate

Please be very careful when driving through the garage gate. If the gate is going down, DO NOT try to slip under the gate. Once the gate begins to go down it will not stop if you press the button on the garage gate opener. It will only stop when it hits something and it could do considerable damage to both your car and the gate if this occurs. The gate is set to stay up an adequate amount of time for one car. You will
be held responsible for any damage if the camera shows that you tried to slip through the gate inappropriately.
