May 20, 2019 @ Wightman residence

ATTENDING: Ralph Sobel, Ken Seipel, Dot Wightman, Dan Clement, Brenda Cubbage, Bryan Keathley, Nancy Weaver, Roger Pendleton, Chris Slauter, Bruce Turner

Meeting called to order at 7 p.m. Minutes of last meeting,

March 4, 2019, were approved.

The Board discussed FEMA’s announced redrawing of flood maps and the potential impact on flood insurance.

Treasurer Turner reported two homeowners have not paid their dues and liens will be filed. Expenses, including the once-a-year cost of stocking the lake with tilapia, are normal. Assets as of April were $164,700.

Architectural Control Committee Chair Cubbage reported busy times with improvement projects approved for residents on San Paulo Court, Findlay Drive and Loch Lomond. Disappointedly, a Westwood Drive resident constructed a backyard gazebo without the covenants-required approval.

Water Committee Chair Seipel reports rains and gravity flow from our impound continue to maintain lake level at optimum. Water quality samples were taken to TTI Labs and results are expected this week. Annual re-stocking the lake with tilapia for algae control was done April 24. Cost for 135 pounds of tilapia was the same as it has for last several years at $1,485.

Dredging the end of the North Channel is scheduled May 30; the fountain will be removed for maintenance during dredging.

Tree limbs overhanging the waterway lower than 10 feet above  navigation channels will be trimmed in June. Homeowners were requested numerous times to trim their trees or the HOA will trim them and invoice the homeowners for the labor.

Seipel and Dan Clement have constructed a hard top for the impound silo and will install it as soon as Rush Creek water levels permit. About a foot of silt in bottom of silo will be removed when pumping is required.

The Board gave unanimous approval for President Sobel to inform Mayor Jeff Williams and Interlochen’s councilman Andrew Piel of our concerns about the Green Oaks Preserve Development on West Pioneer Parkway. As part of the Rush Creek watershed, the Lake Interlochen neighborhood would be impacted by flooding issues created by the proposed development.

Next board meeting was scheduled for July 22, 2019.
(Subsequently switched to July 8, 2019.)

Meeting adjourned at 9 p.m.
