Annual Meeting Feb. 18

The 2016 Dunlap Lake Annual meeting will be held at 7 p.m. Thursday, February 18 at the Moose Lodge, 7371 Marine Road. The doors and a cash bar will open at 6:30 p.m. There are a number of big decisions ahead of us this year and your input is valued. Three areas that might be of special interest are:
  • Dredging. The silt committee will have a report of progress from the past year and recommendations for how to proceed in 2016. They have engineering reports from Horner Shifrin, preliminary recommendations, and will hopefully have some cost estimates for improvements to the silt basin at the South End and dredging. 
  • Commons Repairs – Two big projects were done last summer and the commons committee is compiling a list of areas that might be in need of repairs for 2016.
  • Board Member elections – The nominating committee will present candidates for 6 board positions and nominations will be taken from the floor.


January 2015 Board Meeting Summary

The Dunlap Lake Property Owners Association board of directors met January 25, 2016 at 840 East Lake Drive. Business not covered elsewhere in this newsletter includes:

  • The end of year financial position is looking good. The income is ahead of budget and the expenses are under by about $3,000. The reserve account is being moved from City and Village Tax Office to the Bank of Edwardsville where it will be FDIC insured.
  • The nominating committee presented a list of volunteers for open board positions.
  • The engineers do not have the aggregate price estimates for dredging but are trying to get that before the annual meeting. The officers will continue to explore funding options but can only explain concept, not specific breakdowns, until those numbers are available.
  • Options and permitting are being explored for spraying unwanted plant life early in the spring.
In a closed session at the end of the meeting, the Association Management contract with C. Green & Associates was renewed.
