From Management --

March 19th 2019

The Park dealing with Cable TV has been a learning curve over the past few years. There will be no prorating for the cable service. We found that Prorating the charge causes more work that it was worth; so it was decided it''s a full year or nothing, as $160 for a full year is very reasonable.

Last season the payment was due on or before May 1st, though we still found that there were a few that did not pay in a timely fashion and had to be contacted more than once, then only paid up when they were told their cable would be turned off.

That is a lot of unnecessary work for the Management/Maintenance staff, when in reality they could be getting the pools ready to be opened for the Holiday Weekend.

As for the reconnect fee, it needs to be more of a deterrent than anything else; if you do not want to be disconnected and charge a fee to get the service back, members need to pay on time.

Once again, people step to the plate to get things done behind the scenes. The work that Jack Daniels and Pat Wilson did working with me and preparing a proposed budget was time consuming and excellent. THANK YOU Jack and Pat.

I need to give a huge THANK YOU to Terese Smyth and Randy Bates for all the information they put together for me in doing the budget. I also want to recognize the absolutely tireless work that Terese Smyth did in getting the paperwork together for, not only the budget meeting, but also the Pathways Spring mailing. This is a time consuming effort.

And last, but not least, a huge THANK YOU to Theresa Newman, who is so instrumental in helping Randy with the mailings to over 400 members. I urge ALL Park members to take the time to thank these people for ALL their behind the scenes work.

Dick Verhagen

Attention Members: The Budget meeting was Saturday, 3/16/2019. Costs for Dues and Calbe TV remain the same at $925 and $160.  The mailing will be going out before the end of the month. 

March 18th       Attention Members:   Our Dues statement states that the Dues payment is due by May 15th, for ease in accounting, it has been decided that the Cable payment is also due on the 15th of May, but must be paid in full.

To avoid a late fee on your Dues, your payment must be received by the office by the 15th. If the Cable payment is not received by the office by the 15th you cable will be disconnected. If you then state that you want your cable turned back on, there will be a $25.00 reconnect fee. So, if you would like Cable TV service this season, please pay your bill by the 15th of May. 
Thank you.

Happy Spring everyone!!! I traveled the entire Park for the second day in a row. Four Wheel Drive was still needed in some areas, especially some hilly areas but melting is occurring very rapidly with some roads completely clear. I found no large limbs down and no major damage. 

A reminder to all members, if you become stuck it is your responsibility to call a tow truck. It is against our Rules for any park employee to assist.
