Boats used on the lake are limited to a 7.5 horsepower outboard motor except pontoon boats which are limited to a 9.9 horsepower motor. Electric motors used as the main propulsion source shall meet the same power limitations. No more than one outboard motor per boat will be allowed. Inboard and inboard/outboard motors are not permitted on the lake. It is not the intent of this requirement to restrict the mounting and use of a 12 volt electric trolling motor in addition to one outboard motor.
There were 266 properties, which is right at 75% of the Association’s membership that participated.
With 532 votes cast (2 per property represented), 288 voters (54%) supported the creation of a Special Service Area by the City of Edwardsville to finance the Dunlap Lake dredging and silt control project.
A survey is being designed so you can share your feedback next week.
It has been proposed that the Dunlap Lake Property Owners Association ask the City of Edwardsville to create a Special Service Area (SSA) as a mechanism for funding the dredging of Dunlap Lake.
Residents will be asked to vote on whether or not they want to do this at a membership meeting to be held at 7 pm on Wednesday, June 22 at the Moose Lodge, 7371 Marine Road.
The vote is being taken at a meeting because it is important that everyone understand this unique proposition. If you cannot attend the meeting you can designate a proxy. Reply to this e-mail to get a proxy designation form. Click here for proxy instructions and more on the voting process.
Your $500 annual assessment bill should have come from a company named Community Property Management (CPM) this year. CPM is part of an association of property managers that can give us slightly better interest rates, an online member portals and other benefits we could not provide for members on our own.
In changing to the new financial manager, CPM was unaware of the $1 annual parkway lease fee. If you live on the lake please include this in your check as always.
Please join us on the dam at 6 pm June 29 for a quick clean up. It’s a great opportunity to see the dam up close. Bring gardening or work gloves and a trash bag if you can.
