BUILDINGS & GROUNDS MAINTENANCE REQUESTS

The Avenbury Lakes request form for Maintenance Work is available on this website under Resident Information and can be found in the Lodge Fitness Room.  It can be used to address the need for cleaning or repairs in the Lodge or Pool areas.  If you have a concern, fill out the form and either slide it under the Activity Coordinator’s door or submitted the completed form to the Avenbury Lakes Business Office.  

LOCK BOX PROGRAM - The Avon Fire Department offers a program where they will install a lock box on the outside of your home which would contain a key to your house.  This would allow the Fire Department to get into your house without breaking a window or door in case of an emergency.  Only the Fire Department would have access to the lock box.  If you are interested in this program, you can fill out an application at the Avon Senior Center.  The cost is $25.00.  Please contact the Avon Senior Center at 934-2417 if you have any questions.
