Quorum Met:  Yes

Residents in attendance:  Barbara and David Harris, Karen Fall, Kathleen Roush, David Fritz

Minutes of last meeting:  Have been submitted to the WEB master for posting.


President:  Discussed a new letter from County Attorney Dan Whitten concerning the county cutting the lock at the fenced area at the lake entrance and the county taking over cutting the grass in the small area adjacent to the parking lot. There was a lot of confusion over who was to mow what areas at first with some of the grass being cut within days of other mowing and billed for the same mowing. Some of the grass went weeks without mowing initially.

Announced that the LFR Sanitary District had been turned over the “Parks and Rec Dept.” by Bob Childress.

Vice President: Bruce noted that he is still reviewing the bylaws to bring them up to date.

Treasurer:  Reported on LFRPOA expenses; and also stated that she is waiting on the accountants for information concerning our accounts and that the information is to be posted on the website in the first week of July.

Secretary:  Brought up the issue of infighting among community residents, primarily on social media and other personal encounters among neighbors intruding on the personal space of some. In particular was a discussion about a person, or persons, reporting many sheds on properties that are allegedly in violation of county laws. It was determined that Roger Stevens was the lone perpetrator. This act by Mr. Stephens has caused much angst among several property owners and confusion among County officials. Letters were sent to many POA members threatening action if sheds weren’t removed, yet the County Attorney denies that any action has been taken with regard to the sheds. To be continued…

Architectural:  Announced that the payments for new construction (now $2500-increased from $1500) will now be collected by the county at the time that the permits are issued for construction projects.

Grounds and Safety:   There is concern about non-residents using the lake inappropriately and proposed signage was viewed and approved for posting at the lake. It was noted again that grass areas were being mowed by both the county and the POA. The large truck in the parking lot had been ordered to be moved by the county. Other concerns were that county personnel had been seen at the dam. Mr. Spulock resorted to picking trash left at the dam, many garbage bags full. Broken concrete was noticed at the spillway and the engineer, Dan Hamerick, had been notified.

Roads and Maintenance:  None


  1. Safety Issus: There was discussion about four trees on Redmont Rd. that are in danger of falling, Russell Hofenmasr was believed to be the go to person.
  2. Sheds: Bob Morrison of the Dept. of Zoning sent letters to 22 residents requesting that they move their sheds in regards to a complaint made by Roger Stephens. Azlee Bates is working with Mr. Morrison to have the zoning law changed to accommodate the hardship that it would impose on so many residents.
  3. Lake Use: Concept of requiring an I.D. for residents to use the lake.
