1/25/23 – Association News

As we embark upon a new year, most of us ponder a resolution for change, betterment and lofty goals. Your Association team is no different. We have set our sights on being better at everything we do; and that is plentiful. Some of the projects we are tackling are removal of silt in and around silt ponds, cleaning out roadside ditches, patching of potholes and deep cracks not repaired by the recent crack filling, dredging, mowing along the entire lake roadway, clean up of the trailer lot, and the list goes on and on. This year, for the first time in several years, we are fully staffed with five full-time operations employees. Weather many times dictates what scope of work can and cannot be performed an any given day. We do are best to schedule specific types of work and goals, but many times, besides the weather, other important requests and circumstances require us to divert from the plan of the day. Rest assured we will keep focused on the endgame and complete the task as soon as practical.

While you are snuggled up in your warm house and looking for something to do, go to the Association website and open the rules section related to use of the lake. It never hurts to refresh your memory of the rules, which are written with the ultimate goal of keeping our lake safe. With nearly 3,700 watercraft and non-motorized craft on our lake, it is easy to recognize each of our obligations to keep the lake safe.

DID YOU KNOW: One of rules of the Association requires each watercraft to have a life preserver (vest, ski belt, buoyant cushion or ring buoy) for each person aboard the watercraft. Flotation devices shall be in serviceable condition and readily accessible. (3 pts).
