WHAT: Entrance sign demolished by single-car wreck
WHO’S RESPONSIBLE: Watervale Homeowners Association
ACTION PROMISED: It took three months, but residents of Watervale will have an entrance sign again within a matter of days.
The brick sign was nearly flattened in a wreck Nov. 15. After a lengthy process between the homeowners association and Acceptance Auto Insurance to obtain damage estimates, the project is nearly complete.
“It’s been incredibly frustrating,” said Mike Walsh, the volunteer grounds chairman of the subdivision.
Steve Hood, the owner of Steve Hood Stucco and Stone, is repairing the entrance, which he said will be ready early this week.
“This is one of the worst brick damages I’ve ever been hired to repair,” he said. “These were solid brick columns, and they’ve been leveled to the ground.”
