The Results are In!

The meeting was then recessed to count the ballots.
The Annual Meeting reconvened at 12:15 p.m.  Immediately following the conclusion of the Annual Meeting, the Board of Directors meeting began. The Election results were announced at the end of the Board of Directors meeting.
As all Board members were not available immediately after the announcement of the new Board at the conclusion of the Board of Directors meeting, the Board members voted to postpone their Organizational Meeting and the election of Board Officers to a later date when all Board members can be present.
Congratulations to our New

Sun City Aliante Community Center Vista Room
Wednesday, May 22, 6 - 8 p.m.
Please join us for a Candidate Meet ‘n’ Greet on Wednesday, May 22 from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Vista Room of the Sun City Aliante Community Center.
This is your opportunity to meet local candidates who are running for seats in our State Legislature, on our city council, in our judicial courts, and for Congressional District 4.
The North Las Vegas Alliance of Concerned Citizens and the Sun City Aliante Homeowners Association are excited to team up once again to offer candidates the opportunity to meet residents on an informal basis.
The event will begin at 6 p.m. with welcoming remarks from the Sun City Aliante Board of Directors, and Bob Mersereau, President of the Alliance. You will then be invited to circulate the room to speak to all the candidates. Each participating
candidate will be assigned a table. If a candidate is unable to attend in person due to a scheduling conflict, a representative will be permitted to staff their table.
As this event is held prior to Early Voting, this is an excellent opportunity for you to present your concerns directly to candidates face-to-face. The Sun City Aliante HOA and the North Las Vegas Alliance of Concerned Citizens understand the importance of getting to know the candidates and where they stand on the issues that confront our city. We do not make endorsements; we provide residents with an opportunity to become informed about the candidates running in this primary election.
We hope you will attend this event. Before you vote, take advantage of this opportunity to stay informed. 

For your convenience, in coordination with the Clark County Election Department,
we have scheduled one day for EARLY VOTING in addition to the PRIMARY ELECTION DAY at Sun City Aliante Community Center.
You will have the opportunity to vote for local, state, and federal candidates 
in the Social Hall at the Sun City Aliante Community Center
on the following dates:
Primary Early Voting 
·       Monday, May 27, 2024 – 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Primary Election Day
·       Tuesday, June 11, 7 a.m. – 7 p.m.
There will be an official mail ballot drop box on-site those dates and times for those who would prefer to drop off their voted mail ballot rather than voting in person.

Memorial Day 
Monday, May 27, 2023
In commemoration of Memorial Day, the Sun City Aliante Administrative Offices will be closed on Monday, May 27.  However, the Community Center will be open regular hours from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m.

Wednesday, June 12, 2024, 9:45 a.m.
Vista Room
The Budget Ratification Meeting will be held at 9:45 a.m. on June 12 prior to the Board of Directors meeting at 10 a.m.  The meeting is open to all Sun City Aliante homeowners. 
The agenda for the meeting will be published in the eBlast, posted in the Community Center and on the website. You can also pick up an agenda at the Front Desk starting June 6.

 ~ whether you are gone a week, a month or all summer ~ to be prepared
~Submitted by Neighborhood Watch
1.  If you have a Neighborhood Watch Block Captain or a trusted neighbor, let them know you will be gone and for how long. Let them know if you have a regular yard service or exterminator. 
2.  That person should have your cell phone number and the phone number of a family member in case of an emergency at your home.
3.  If you have a security system, let them know your emergency contact while you are away such as your trusted neighbor, family member or Block Captain.
4.  A good suggestion is to purchase a lock box like the type a realtor uses. Put a key in the lock box and put it on the gas main pipe or even an outside faucet. If something should happen, you could give the code to your trusted neighbor or a family member.
5.  Check smoke alarm batteries and replace them if they are over a year old.
6.  Stop the morning paper. If you have regular packages delivered, stop them or have your trusted neighbor watch for them and pick them up.
7.  If your time away from home is going to be lengthy, unplug all unnecessary electronics, such as clocks, chargers etc. Set a timer in the living room or a bedroom with a light or a radio that goes off and on intermittently. It will help the house not look or sound empty.
8.  A good idea might be to load the car the night before so that when you leave nobody will know you are leaving on a trip. Look around the neighborhood, check your surroundings as you drive away. Circle around the block one last time just to be sure nobody has parked in front of your house.
9  One of the last things to do is to be sure to turn off the water to the house. Turn the yellow handle in the garage off. (Off is the handle pointing down). This is so there will not be pressure on the water softener, water heater or even water pipes. Relieve the pressure by turning on a faucet at one of the sinks in the house. Turn the hot water heater to Pilot.
10.  Be sure to lock the service porch/laundry room door on your way out.
Residents are always welcome at the NW meetings. For information regarding the Sun City Aliante Neighborhood Watch program, contact our coordinator, Jim Blossey, at jimandpatb@embarqmail.com or 775-530-5119.
Your Water Quality: Our Top Priority
No matter where you live in Southern Nevada, you can count on the safety, reliability and quality of the drinking water you draw from your tap for you and your family. In fact, our drinking water meets or surpasses all state and federal standards—and is tested more thoroughly and frequently than most bottled water.
Local water providers including the Las Vegas Valley Water District, the Big Bend Water District, and the cities of Boulder City, Henderson and North Las Vegas have recently published their annual water quality reports. These reports provide you with detailed information about what’s in your drinking water and reflect the results of rigorous laboratory testing and advanced treatment conducted by the Southern Nevada Water Authority (SNWA). 
In fact, the SNWA tests your water 300,000 times a year, monitoring for more regulated and unregulated contaminants than is required by law. The Federal Safe Drinking Water Act sets water-quality standards for all water purveyors; in Nevada, these standards are enforced by the State of Nevada’s Bureau of Safe Drinking Water. Southern Nevada’s drinking water is carefully treated and regularly tested to ensure it meets these stringent requirements.
Still, some folks might shy away from tap water due to its hard, mineral-rich taste, while others mistakenly confuse taste with safety. Rest assured, your glass of tap water is both refreshing and safe to enjoy, and its naturally occurring minerals and electrolytes help keep you hydrated and healthy.
However, if the taste of tap water doesn’t appeal to you, there are some easy tips you can use to make your water lip-smackin’ good: 
• CHILL: Refrigerate a pitcher of tap water to boost flavor and zap chlorine perceptions. 
• FLAVOR: Add a citrus slice for zest. 
•  FILTER: Try an activated carbon filter, like those in carafe systems, to reduce chlorine taste.
• MAINTAIN: If you have an in-home filtration system, follow its recommended maintenance schedule, including filter replacement.
For objective information on water quality, and to obtain a copy of your water provider’s 2023 water quality report, visit snwa.com.

Are you unable to use public transportation because of a disability? Are you aware of the Regional Transportation Commission’s (RTC) services to assist people with disabilities through Paratransit Services?  Please check out this valuable information.
The Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada’s (RTC) paratransit service is a shared-ride, door-to-door program available for those who are functionally unable to independently use the RTC’s fixed-route system either all of the time, temporarily or under certain circumstances. All paratransit customers are eligible and encouraged to use fixed-route services. Paratransit I.D. card holders can ride any fixed-route or express route free of charge.
 You may be eligible for the service if, because of a disability:

 ·         You cannot independently travel to/from fixed route stops.
·         You could use an accessible fixed route vehicle, but the route that would be used is not accessible.
·         You cannot independently navigate the system even though you can board a bus. 
Eligibility for RTC ADA Paratransit Services is not a medical decision or something that can be prescribed by your physician. It is primarily a transportation decision. All who request eligibility for paratransit service must be certified, which may entail an in-person interview and possible functional assessment. Each applicant is evaluated independently based on ADA requirements.
·         To begin the process, call 702-676-1815 and request an RTC Paratransit Application. (You will receive a self-addressed envelope to return the completed application by mail.) 
·         Please wait 7 days from date you return the form and call 702-676-1815 to determine whether they will require you to have an in-person evaluation.
·         If you are approved, you will pay a reduced fare when using Paratransit Services.
For detailed information on fees and all the benefits of the RTC Paratransit Program visit the RTC website at this link. https://www.rtcsnv.com/ways-to-travel/how-to-ride/
