Manager's Report July-August 2021 - Pam McFarland
All restrictions have been removed for the use of the common areas, except at this time food handling. We hope to be preparing for a “normal” season for 2021-2022.
When you get a chance look at the updated Golf Lakes’ website at golflakes.com. It is a work in progress at this point, but we are hoping to give others a glimpse of “Golf Lakes” and our residents helpful information.
Starting in July, I will begin on the draft for the 2021 budget to be reviewed by the Budget and Finance Committee in August. This budget will be presented to the Board of Directors at their first meeting in October. It will then be sent to the residents before the Budget Meeting the first Monday in December at which time the Board of Directors will vote on the Budget after discussion with the residents.
The projects for the summer will be the removal of the paddle wheel, painting of the laundry and restrooms, painting of the south wall of clubhouse, two new tee boxes on the golf course and the barn will get a new roof. These projects may have minor inconveniences to residents.
Along with the summer rains the weeds are sprouting. Thank you to residents who made arrangements to keep your property looking good all year long. Park inspections are accomplished monthly during the summer.
Winter residents thank you for your cooperation in putting things away prior to leaving for the summer accordance with the rules. Summer residents you are required to put things away if an evacuation order is given. Make it easy on yourself to put things away now or get rid of things you cannot put away.
If you are a resident, you must push your remote to keep the main gate open if you follow a car in the main gate. Also, if you suspect or know that someone is coming into the park that should not be in here, PLEASE call 911. If the police are called and they are caught they will think twice about coming in again and they will tell others that our residents will call the police.
Gate remote control device batteries may fail. It has been over 17 years since they were issued. If you have not had your batteries replaced, you can have it checked at the office. Replacement batteries are available at the office at a total cost of $4.00 for both batteries.
The trimming of the palm trees along the roads and common property will be scheduled for August. If you have a palm tree on your property that you would like to have trimmed the cost is $19.00 per tree. Let the office know the address, where the tree is on the lot and pay the $19.00. You will be put on the list so that they can trim them as they do the whole park.
The office will be closed Monday, July 5th in observance of the Independence Day Holiday. Happy Birthday America!!! And Monday, September 6th for Labor Day.
I hope everyone is having a healthy and safe summer.
Real Estate sales have been very busy. The real estate office has only one listing that is not pending a sale. It is an excellent time to list your home for sale if it is the right time for our residents.
RULE REMINDER: THE MOBILE HOME SITE: 5. Flowers, shrubs and lawns may be watered only by handheld hose on the days designated by the State of Florida. No sprinkler system, set sprinkler or soaker hose will be allowed, except in the case of new sod which may use a soaker hose on a timer for 30 days with the Manager’s permission. Prudent use of water for all purposes should be everyone’s first consideration.
