We just got word that the DNR chipping crew has a lull in their schedule and will be at BSR tomorrow, Wednesday, July 18, 2018.
A new Facebook group has been created for BSR residents to help facilitate communication among neighbors: Beaver Springs Ranch Residents. This group will allow you to start conversations in a closed group—as apposed to a public page as with the “Beaver Springs Ranch Association” Facebook page—to help maintain residents’ privacy.
A crew will be on the mountain Saturday, June 2nd, 2018, to wash windows. Anyone interested should call 435-783-7141 after 5-18-2018.
More information on the Summit County Recycling program was requested at our Annual Meeting earlier this week. Below is an informative graphic from Summit County and Republic Services outlining what is accepted for recycling and what is not. For more information please see their website.
A window washing crew will be in BSR Saturday, September 16th. Anybody interested in having their windows washed can call 435-783-7141.
Summit County’s CodeRED Emergency Notification System is a high-speed telephone calling system capable of making several thousand calls per hour to traditional landline phones, cell phones, and Voice over Internet Protocol (VOIP) phones.
For more information and to register for CodeRED notifications, please see the Summit County CodeRED webpage. Most addresses within BSR will not map properly. The registration process will allow you to move a pin on a map to give your precise location.
Last fall Summit County partnered with Republic Services for solid waste collection and a $36 fee was assessed property owners. Many BSR property owners received an invoice. The Upper Weber County Property Owners Association (comprised of the homeowner associations in Weber Canyon) is proposing a counter proposal to reduce the fee assessed to property owners. Current facts and the new proposal are shown below.
BY MAY 31st, please direct any questions or suggestions to improve the proposal to a BSR board member or call Garl Fink or Don Vernon at the phone numbers shown below.

Summit County has contracted with Republic Services for garbage collection beginning in 2017. Most property owners in Weber Canyon received a $36 billing notice for 2017 annual garbage collection from Republic Services. There is confusion about the purpose of the collection fee. The notice referenced that it was for a “65 gallon cart,” even if the property owner did not have a 65 gallon cart. The Upper Weber Canyon Property Owners Association has been in contact with the Summit County Landfill Superintendent. After discussion, their recommendation, at this point, is to pay the invoice “under protest” to avoid a late payment penalty. More information will be available after the next Summit County Council meeting.
The DNR has confirmed that they will again chip wood piles this year ….. similar to last year. It is important that the wood piles be properly stacked as shown in the accompanying pictures. Wood chips will be left on your property. Stacked wood should be placed close to the main BSR roads, easily accessible by work crews.
Chipping dates will be posted as soon as we are notified. Significant advanced notice may not be possible. Please clean your properties now in preparation for DNR work.
We appreciate the work and cleanup efforts already evident throughout the BSR area. Your cleanup efforts earned us a Firewise USA award for 2015 and contribute to a similar recognition for 2016.
