Reply to Street Repair Comments Friday, April 20, 2018

The POA has had inquiries about the way the street repairs are being handled and felt the following explanation from Paul Gugenheim, Bentwater resident and degreed expert in the field of concrete construction and repair, would be helpful.

I am responding to questions on the roads.  I am a graduate engineer from Texas A and M and have owned my heavy design and construction company for 35 years.

My company has laid untold amounts of concrete repair material,

designed such, we are licensed in 26 states, and sealed hundreds of thousands of

feet of cracks such as in airport runways, streets, parking garages, and the

like.  see more.....

Fiber Optic Update Friday, April 6, 2018

Fiber Optic Update

If your address does not appear in the autocomplete list you can call Tachus at 832-791-1100 and speak to an agent to complete the process.  If you are not sure what options you want just tell them you want to request service and will decide later at what speed and if you want TV.

We still need 230 more homes to sign up to reach our goal of 500 home that are interested in a fiber optic network in Bentwater.  Remember the $20.00 deposit will cover the first month internet service once the network is installed.  If TachUs does not get enough interest, you get your deposit fully refunded.  The amount you will pay when service is initiated depends on the internet speed and number of TV channels you choose.  But for now that is not important. You can decide later what level of service you need.  What is important is that we show interest in getting the fiber optic network into Bentater.  Additionally, TachUs does not require a contract, has no cancellation charges, no monthly equipment charges and no usage cap or bandwidth throttling.
Please go to this link at to sign up.  

You will be billed the $20.00 plus tax but nothing further until the network is installed. You can decide later what level of TV service you want if any. Twenty dollars is a small amount to pay to protect the value of your home and enjoy stable, reliable and fast Internet service plus television, movie and gaming opportunities. We strongly urge you to do this today.

Bentwater's Sunday Music Series Monday, November 20, 2017

String Quartet…beautiful sounds that can be softly passionate and then purely sacred, delightfully pure and then wild and jubilant. The most influential composers include Franz Joseph Haydn, Franz Schubert, Ludwig van Beethoven, and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

This will be the first event of the music series on October 15 at 3:00 held at the Yacht Club.

Individual tickets are $35.00 person, and season tickets are $150.00 (a 15% discount). Please procure tickets at the Bentwater Country Club Front Office. The full proceeds from the ticket sales are a tax-deductible contribution to the SHSU School of Music Scholarship program, and a ticket makes you eligible to join SHSU “Friends of Music” with benefits like 2 complimentary passes to events at the SHSU Performing Arts Center!

Come a little early for a cocktail, and bring your friends. After the concert plan on spending time socializing with the fabulous faculty, while enjoying hors d’oeuvres. We look forward to seeing you there. It will be great fun.
