The BOD has created a sub-committee to work with property owners in the proximity of the five major Property Owner Parks (POPs) to seek appropriate solutions to the unauthorized usage of the properties. The first park meeting was held with property owners close to Lafitte Bay and some viable solutions are being evaluated further.
Other POP meetings will follow. If you live near to or have a special interest in any (or all) of the POPs and wish to be involved in these discussions, please let us know! Email the BOD or contact the office to be added!
Please remember the Office Manager takes a lunch daily, usually between 11-1. If you plan to stop by midday, give Denise a call first to be sure she's in the office.
The Office Manager is looking for a few good volunteers to assist with some tasks in the file room. There are multiple drawers of records that need to be alphabetized, old meeting minutes/financial reports to be organized and filed, and lots of old papers to be shredded. Just stop in the office or call Denise, we appreciate any assistance!
