You may turn in your election items at the office when it is convenient for you. A quorum must be obtained to have the meeting. Please be sure to fill out and sign the proxy and turn in to the office as soon as possible. Residents must sign their blue and green ballot or they will not be counted.
I want to express my appreciation to last year’s Board of Directors for all their work and help. I would like to acknowledge the service of Mary Kline and David Bailey to Golf Lakes Board of Directors as they have decided not to run for re-election. They both have contributed to the Co-Op during their time of service. We appreciate all that they contributed to the business of Golf Lakes.
The annual meeting requires a lot of work on behalf of the Board, staff and volunteers. Thank you all!
We appreciate all our volunteers, if you have a complaint about any policy set by the Board of Directors, please defer those complaints to the Board or myself. Please do not give our volunteers a hard time and if you are volunteering, please tell anyone complaining to you to contact a Board member or the Manager.
Board Meetings are normally the second and fourth Thursdays of the month during the season. Until further notice these meeting will be in person/zoom meetings in the Board Room. The notice of meeting and agenda are posted on Tuesday of the week of the meeting by 9 a.m. on the bulletin board outside the office entrance and on the one in the foyer inside the office entrance door. All Board Meetings are open to all unit owners. An e-blast is sent out 48 hours prior to the meeting containing the zoom information and agenda. If you want to receive the e-blast please be sure the office has your email address.
The accountant should be working on the 2021 financials at this time. It is always good for the office staff to have this process accomplished for another year. Cindy and Judy’s great work ethic is seen especially this time of year and resident’s patience during this busy time is appreciated. You will get a postcard notifying you that the Review is available. You can then pick it up at the office or request it be e-mailed or mailed to you.
As broker of the Golf Lakes’ real estate office, I appreciate the opportunity given to Lynne and myself to represent you in the sale of your home. In 2021, the real estate office closed 47 resales. If there is any way the sales office can be of assistance to you, I hope you will call upon our services.
It is very important that residents report any wet areas you discover in the park to the office so that it can be checked for a water line break.
In a recent drive through the park on an overcast day I noticed several homes with mildew, especially awnings and the north side of homes. To prevent being sent a letter take a walk around your home and take care of maintenance items while you are here.
Do not forget that remotes are no longer needed to exit the park at any gate.
Golf Lakes is posted as a NO SOLICITATION community. Please do not purchase from vendors going door to door in the park, instead tell them there is no soliciting in Golf Lakes and call the office to report them.
Feeding food to the wildlife I know is fun for some. But please do not encourage wild life to be fed at your individual units. Please check the bulletin board for information on feeding Canadian Geese and the effects of doing so.
On Thursday, March 24th and 25th there will be a Spring Clean-Up Day. The garbage collectors will take away all items put out to the curb except for paint and hazardous materials. Everyone needs to have their items to the street by 7:30 on the 24th. There will be no going back to an area for additional pickups. The vendor is hoping to have all the park completed in one day. If not the second day will be used. Please take this opportunity to clean out, especially things stored outside. Outside items need to be stored away, anchored permanently, or removed when you depart Golf Lakes for any time longer than 14 days. Please consider getting rid of items that cannot easily be put inside quickly.
