Jerry Agrusa, President

Scott Coakley, Vice President

Jim Watt, Treasurer 

Nancy Bell, Secretary

Kevin Mack, Trustee

Chris Sellers, Trustee

Al Vitous, Trustee 

BOARD MEMBERS ABSENT:  

None

The meeting was called to order at 9:05 by President, Jerry Agrusa at the shelter house.

The minutes from the July 8th monthly board meeting were read by Nancy Bell.  The minutes were approved by Chris Sellers – seconded by Al Vitous.

TREASURER’S REPORT:

Jim Watt recited the Treasury Report.    Several bills were paid.  Jim motioned to move some funds to a CD for higher interest rates. Jerry seconded motion. The Treasury Report was approved as written and transfer of funds was approved by all.

NEW MEMBER ACTIVITY: 

Membership is now at 203.

OLD BUSINESS 

LEGAL:

Jerry sent additional requested information to new attorney.  Cliff Bloom will provide options of trailer removal and other items.  Should know more by September or October meeting 

AQUATIC LIFE:

The second spraying of the weeds was done on July 11. The lake looks good and no complaints since that spray.

ROADS:

Jim Watt was contacted about a turnaround by View Drive. When paving the roads, contractors did not blacktop this area.   The road is a much larger area and encroachment could be a possibility in that area.

PARKS:

Kevin Mack did a lot of work at the shelter house and game area for the annual picnic that happened right after the meeting. He stated that the old tower at Chickadee Park is rotten. He suggested to remove and possibly burn.  

We have park surveys and some show encroachment of personal items on park property.  A copy of the survey with letters to adjoining owners will be sent telling them to remove their personal property from park property.  This could be done as early as September 30th.  Then a possible fence or barrier would be placed on the property line.  This is to shown lake owners where the park is they can go on and also to guard and protect both parties.  Chris Sellers made a motion to show park area versus private owners lot. Jim Watt seconded.  A vote was taken and all are in favor.

CALENDAR OF EVENTS:

*Wine Crawl – September 2nd

*Trunk or Treat – October 27th

*LDCA non-sponsored events

TRAILERS:

Some trailers have been removed. 

  

NEW BUSINESS:

Kevin put up No Wake and Speed Limit signs that Chris ordered. One might be moved to an area with more boat traffic, maybe the entrance of Hidden Lake channel.  Kevin was contacted several times by DNR about liking these signs.

If any board members visit a business, ask them if they want to provide a coupon to be put in Welcome Package

Chris Sellers suggested we buy toys to rent out. Great idea but this would be an Association liability. The Halloween Hayride and Winterfest were stopped due to insurance and liability reasons.

Washout of the road on West Diane by Woodbridge was fixed by Hillsdale Road Commission the day after they were contacted.

At 10:11, Jerry made a motion to adjourn the meeting. Jim Watt seconded the motion. A vote was taken and the meeting was adjourned.

Respectfully Submitted:

Note about recent letters left with some neighbors

Lake Diane Community Residents;

Good Day:

It has come to the attention of the Lake Diane Community Association Board that a notice is circulating regarding rental properties on the lake.

First let me state that the notice is not being circulated in mail boxes by the LDCA Board. We, along with all members present at the annual meeting, were provided the information this past June, but have not reviewed, nor had discussions on the information as a board.

Secondly, any notifications to lake residents for information such as this would be direct mailed to all Lake Diane residents.

Finally, each property has specific deed restrictions for your individual property. We find that most deed restrictions do contain specific language regarding trailer and commercial or rental properties. We suggest that you review your property’s specific deed restrictions to ensure that you are in compliance.

We hope this clears any mis-understanding.

Warm Regards

Jerry Agrusa

LDCA Board President
