At the Saturday, October 6th, Lake Diane Community Association monthly board meeting it was brought to our attention that multiple community member’s did not receive the 2018 Spring Newsletter.  Upon discussion, there were several reasons we believe this may have happened: (1) USPS error, (2) the address we have on file for you may be incorrect, (3) the address we have on file for you may not have a receptacle.  An email will be sent to property owners on file which will include the newsletter.

Meeting was an open format for the group that was present to ask questions.

 

Questions were asked concerning multiple lots – it was explained additional lots are billed at 50% of the fees.

 

It was asked about LDCA being a successor to LDPOA and was answered it is not. These are two separate organizations.

 

The board was asked why is a GOA required, it was explained “in order to budget yearly especially for spraying and dredging.”

 

Discussion began about who is going to enforce deed restriction and the board answered, “as in the past, if the membership wished to support a neighbor suing a neighbor to move a camper, we would financially help.” This will only happen if the membership wishes to spend the funds at the Annual Meeting to pursue.

 

Question was asked about the parks being conveyed from LDPOA. It was discussed and the process we are following to convey the parks from LDPOA to Amboy Township to LDCA was explained.
