The HOA Board and PAMCO Management Company have the ability to issue warning letters, impose fines, work with an attorney to place liens on properties, and to foreclose on properties as a last resort.
These processes take time to research, vote on, and bring to resolution. If you have an immediate safety concern, you must contact the appropriate City of Pflugerville department to get a quick resolution. Several helpful departments include Police, Fire, and Code Enforcement. If you are not sure which department can help you, contact the Citizens Communication Line at 512-251-4004.
Q: What is the purpose of a Neighborhood Watch?
Neighborhood Watches are put in place to help protect the community by identifying and observing anything that might pose a threat to the community, and reporting it to local law enforcement, fire, and EMS. In communities where there is already low or no crime, a Neighborhood Watch can serve as a deterrance to future criminal acts.
Q: What should I do if I see something susupicious or dangerous in my neighborhood?
You should try to gather information about what is going on and give that information to Pflugerville PD. You should NOT risk your safety or the safety of anyone else (including a perpetrator) by trying to "take care if it yourself" or "help the cops". Doing so can result in unwanted consequences, potential liability, and needlessly escalating a situation. There may be certain extreme circumstances where you should intervene, but please report what is going on first, and then follow the instructions of the police in determining your own course of action (if any).
- CALL 911 FOR EMERGENCIES
- For non-emergency issues, after hours water, wastewater and safety concerns, call the Citizen's Communication Line. 512-251-4004.
- Feel free to notify the HOA Board after you have contacted the authorities, and we will post relevant factual information on this website (when and if needed).
Q: I've noticed too many cars speeding through my neighborhood. Can my HOA solve this?
The HOA does not have much power to investigate or enforce traffic laws. This is a job for Pflugerville PD.
Please contact the Police Department for non-emergency issues, after hours water, wastewater and safety concerns, by calling the Citizen's Communication Line: 512-251-4004.
Q: There are vehicles parked in the street that pose a safety issue. Who do I contact?
Update 10/3/12 - When the CC&R's were drafted and submitted 10 plus years ago, a restriction covering on-street parking was included. However, Springbrook HOA does not actually have jurisdiction to enforce this restriction. We need a super majority of homeowners to vote in order to remove this restriction from the CC&R's, and have been unable to obtain the needed votes. The on-street parking restriction is not enforceable by Springbrook HOA. If you have a safety concern, please contact the City of Pflugerville Code Enforcement Department to resolve the issue.
Q: My neighbors are causing a nuisance. Who do I contact?
The Springbrook HOA does not function as a police force or intervene in domestic disputes beyond issuing warning letters, fines, etc., which are generally slower processes to getting a resolution, and most situations fall outside of our ability to resolve. If you have a problem with a neighbors behavior or actions that you need a quick resolution for, immediately report it to Pflugerville PD, and Pflugerville Code Enforcement.
Q: How can I join or form a Neighborhood Watch?
- Neighborhood Watches are conducted on a street-by-street basis, and they do not always coordinate with the other streets in the same subdivision.
