Presidents Report:

New Mail Boxes are required due to the growth in the community.  Roush and Castle are working with the County and the Post-Office for site design and cost.  Plan is to begin in the spring of 2020.

2020 Budget was provided to the County on 18 November for presentation to the County Board of Supervisors on 18 December 2018.  The cost per resident was determined to be $45.00 per lot with the hope that this will be collected by the County and then provided to the LFRPOA to pay the corporate bills.

Summer Road Maintenance

Road patching has been placed on hold until the spring due to weather.

Mr. Gornowich provided the status of the proposed County contract and a brief over view of the Boards proposed combining of the SDAC and the POA board as well as why.

  • Review by Silek law group has been completed with several changes provided to the County. Currently the County has no concerns as to the recommended changes.
  • Goal is to have the Contract signed NLT January 2020.
  • Signing of the contract with the County will relieve us of the maintenance responsibility of certain areas such as the dam and lake area.
  • Combining the two entities will simplify who is collecting fees, meetings and maintenance responsibilities and increase collections.

  • We continue to review each lot to determine if the account is correct back to 2014.
  • Collections of this year’s dues has significantly increased since we sent collections notices in September. There are now only 93 past due accounts in total versus the 146 we started with. We are still reviewing so that we can send past due accounts to collections and placing liens on any account $1,000 or greater in arears.  Goal is to send notices January 2020.
  • P&L provided.
  • Summary of the past 30 days of collections provided.
  • Currently there is over $25,000 in collections.
