🐢 Loose Dogs in Malvern πŸ•β€πŸ¦Ί
Loose DogsMadison County does not have a leash law, and Malvern does not have a covenant requiring animals to be contained. Members' dogs routinely get out, but they usually find their way home or to the pound. Dog owners frequently post alerts on Nextdoor.com about their dogs on the loose. If you encounter a loose dog, check to see if there's an alert on Nextdoor. If you encounter an angry or mean dog, you should not approach it. You should call the Madison County Animal Shelter and have them come pick it up.
🚫 Shooting Guns in Malvern 🚫
The Board has received several complaints this month about someone shooting guns in Malvern. Covenant 17 reads, "No hunting shall be allowed upon any lot or common area, and no firearms shall be discharged in the subdivision except as authorized by the Property Owner's Association." As far as we can discern, Malvern Boards have not been disposed in the past to grant a request for permission to fire a weapon anywhere within the confines of Malvern of Madison. This is not a gun ownership issue and has nothing to do with the Second Amendment. It is a safety issue. Many of us in the community are surrounded on all sides by other houses that are within shooting distance of our homes, and we are all located close to roads. Shooting guns in a populated area like Malvern is a dangerous practice. Even if you are being careful, bullets can get away from you. The Sheriff's Office has advised us that a stray bullet is the responsibility of the person who fired the gun, and the shooter is liable for any damage it causes and is subject to fines and jail time if another person is harmed. It is certainly the intent of the covenant to prevent that from happening.

Moreover, gunfire frightens people, especially our widows who live alone and our families with children, several of whom have complained to the Board about this problem over the years. This happens every hunting season, and it's usually because someone is taking target practice, although there have been instances when people have been hunting on their own property. Board members are not aware of a case when a member refused to observe the restriction after they were advised of the covenant. I don't personally think we need to do more than that, but the Board will be taking up the issue at our next meeting on Thursday, December 8th, at 7:00 p.m. in the Activity Center. We'll be discussing whether we need to do anything more about it, beyond counseling members who violate the covenant. If you hear any gunfire that sounds like it's coming from inside Malvern, please do not confront the shooter. Instead, call me (Fred) at 703.405.9621. Any information you provide will be kept confidential.
