same as last year.
Goose Nest Removal: Dave Schoenegge removed 1 nest with 9 eggs
which was reported to the USDA & DEQ.
Mute Swan Nest Removal: We will talk with Golden Shores and discuss this
at the CIHA Annual Meeting. We need a Township resolution to
participate in this program, so a formal CIHA vote is required.
Common Area Clean Up: Ranveen cul de sac island was cleaned up
thanks to Dyanna & Scott Schnell. Coledale Ct. island has been cleaned
up thanks to Maureen Thomas. Burgess Dr. island is being attended to by
several residents who live on that cul-de-sac.
Fireworks Contract: A contract was signed and deposits paid for the 2018
and 2019 dates that received the most votes. We are hoping to secure a
July 4th date for 2020. New members, please see the attached Fireworks
Flyer which provides important information about the Fireworks.
Holiday Bonfire & Toys for Tots: An abundance of toys were donated.
Thank you, Linda Raye for organizing the bonfire and toy collection.
Easter Egg Hunt: A fun time was had by all. Thanks to Valerie Brothers for
organizing the event & Linda Raye for the decorations.
Budget Review: All items reviewed and discussed. Changes were made
to several items as approved by the attendees and later emailed to the
general membership. No objections were received. The 2017 Budget
numbers will be reflected in the May 2017 financial statement which is
Park Clean Up: As we were unable to secure volunteers to paint the swing
set, park bench and special events signpost, and to perform additional
landscape work in the park, we are accepting bids. If you want to bid the
work (adults only) please send an email request by Friday June 9th to
firstname.lastname@example.org. Creating a volleyball area in the park
was discussed. Valerie Brothers will look into it.
Road Repairs: The dip in the road at the subdivision entrance by the drain
continues to be an issue. Please call to complain as multiple calls are
required. Oakland County Road Commission - 877-858-4804.
Snow Plowing Reserve: If we don't use all of the funds we have budgeted
for snow removal in a given year, we will place those funds in a separate
reserve for future winters when we have more snow that we can otherwise
afford to plow.
Tree Trimming: Big Twigs had the lowest bid and will be out June 5th to do
the trimming in the park. The property owner next door has been notified.
Leash your pet! State law requires your dog to be on a leash at all times
when it is outside, even if you are in the yard with it.
Please be considerate of your neighbors. Voices and barking carry
across the bays and waterways. When you go out on your boat, please
either take your dog with you, or keep your dog inside your home – to
prevent it from disturbing others whilst you’re gone.
Also, when left outside for extended periods, please check on your dog to
make sure that it is not barking non-stop and that its leash will not allow it
access to your neighbors’ property.
If you are storing your garbage cans and/or other items outside of the
garage, please be sure that the storage is screened and cannot be seen
from the street or your neighbors’ property.
