will be back in session on Wednesday, August 26. Many of

The Emerald City Half Marathon is this Sunday, August 23.
Although no road closures will take place in Muirfield Village,
residents may wish to be aware of race activities that could
cause delays or closures in the race area.
The Dublin Chief of Police was recently on television
reporting a sudden spike in thefts from cars in Dublin. His
strong advice is to not leave anything at all of value in a
car or certainly not in view.Keep cars locked in your driveway
or in front of your home and keep your garage doors down.
When securing your car, remember that thieves may go after
anything that looks like it could contain something valuable.
Even a shopping bag that is being reused to carry non-purchases
could be a tempting target. Items in view such as car chargers
or GPS mounts could also entice a thief to break into a car.
Several residents have recently reported car break ins
within Muirfield Village, primarily during the evening
and overnight. Please report any suspicious activity,
break ins or attempts to break in to the Dublin police.
Dial 911 for emergencies or 614-889-1112 for general
questions and non-emergencies.
Insurance Check Up
With all of the rain and storms we've had this
spring and summer, this may be a good time to review your
homeowner's insurance policy to ensure that you are covered.
Not all insurance policies are identical. The Ohio
Department of Insurance reminds homeowners
that it is important to read and understand
your homeowner’s insurance policy,
especially pertaining to roof replacement,
catastrophic events, and flooding or other water problems.
Be aware that policies may only cover a portion of
the damages done to a home. For example, in the
event of a sewer line backup, burst water pipe,
or failed sump pump, the limit paid by an insurance
company may not completely cover losses, leaving the
homeowner to pay the remainder. Replacement of
furnishings in a finished basement could easily exceed the policy limit.
Similarly, roof damage by wind can be quite costly.
Since it is not permitted in Muirfield Village to
patch or partially replace a roof, the Association
recommends that residents ensure their homeowner's policy
covers complete roof replacement.
Several residents have
asked about flying the United States flag in Muirfield. The Muirfield
Association encourages residents to display this symbol of our great
country. Display regulations are as follows:
The flag of the United States of America and/or the flag of the State of Ohio may be displayed on the owner’s property in accordance with the regulations for the use and display of the flag as found in Title 4 of the United States Code and as permitted by the Freedom to Display the American Flag Act. Owners assume the respectful use and display as required by law.
One standard-sized US flag and/or one standard-sized State of Ohio flag (not to exceed 3’ x 5’) is permitted to be displayed within the owner’s lot. The installation and location of the flag pole must not interfere with the use of paths or obstruct views of any driveway or street for motorists or pedestrians. The flag must immediately be removed and/or replaced once it is worn, faded and/or tattered.
The Muirfield Design Control Committee must approve the size, type and location of the flag pole before installation.
If a resident chooses to illuminate a flag, the location, direction, and type of outdoor lighting must be approved before any lighting is installed.
“It is the universal
custom to display the flag only from sunrise to sunset
on buildings and on stationary flagstaffs in the open.
However, when a patriotic effect is desired, the flag
may be displayed twenty-four hours a day if properly
illuminated during the hours of darkness.”
“The flag should not
be displayed on days when the weather is inclement,
except when an all weather flag is displayed.”
The American Legion
states that contrary to popular belief, the Flag Code
does not require a person to destroy the flag if it touches the ground:
“The Flag Code
states that the flag should not touch anything beneath it,
including the ground. This is stated to indicate that
care should be exercised in the handling of the flag,
to protect it from becoming soiled or damaged. You are
not required to destroy the flag when this happens.
As long as the flag remains suitable for display, even
if washing or dry-cleaning is required, you may continue
to display the flag as a symbol of our great country.”
Additionally, “There are
no provisions of the Flag Code which prohibit the washing
or dry-cleaning of the flag. The decision to wash or dry-clean
would of course depend upon the type of material.”
Please remember that decorative banners,
seasonal and sports flags, and school banners
may be displayed on a deck, patio or interior window only.
