Christmas meeting Monday, November 5 at 6:30.

Christmas party December 1. Invite will go in mail and email.

Still no plans to do fireworks. Will plan on going year by year and see what we have in the budget.

New Business:

Covenant Compliance:

A lot of improvements of the properties from the letters Gary had sent out.

Burn Pile:

Burn pile is a mess from last years storm still. Lots of rootballs there that will not burn. A letter will be sent out with the burn pile rules and regulations. Possibly close the burn pile in January and February to allow it to be pushed up/cleaned up and start from scratch in the spring. Was proposed to start a burn pile committee.

Road Maintenance/Funding Discussion:

-Review the bylaws on roads, update to include standards that need to be met today.

-We need a 10-year plan, which would include Lakeview Drive.

-We got a bit from Asphalt Maintenance for doing an overlay of the entire lake for $320,000 without doing the sewer system.

-Looking to get a couple more bids.

-Proposal to increase dues of $500 per year per lot for a road maintenance fund. So dues would increase from $325 to $825 per year. Dues would be raised until a motion is made to decrease when we have enough of a balance in the Road Maintenance fund.

-Money would be set aside so funds were available when needed.

-Lakeview would be redone in 2019, would rebid then.

-Vote was 30-Yes, 17-No. Motion passed.
