Report a Violation
|Board members often hear
verbal complaints about the condition of a neighbor's
property, all night parties, or other violations of park
rules. Unfortunately, the board cannot act upon a verbal
complaint or even a vague email complaint. In order to
send out warnings and issue fines to those who are
breaking the rules, the board needs a written letter
describing in detail the problems that exist and how
long the problem has been going on. Several letters from
various individuals that are written about the same
property and the same issues give the board and its
attorney better legal ammunition to fight these battles.
The names of those individuals filing complaints
will be confidential and not mentioned.
It takes all of us to get the park in better
shape. By reporting things that you see, you become part
of the solution. Few board members live at the lake,
even in the summer months. They come for recreation,
just like you do and do not have the time to constantly
drive through the park writing down every detail of
every property violation, but if all of us could take
the time to report the more flagrant violations that are
visible from our own homes, we can collect the evidence
needed to take legal action and help make our community
a nicer place.
Your Own Name

address where you can be reached.
To Whom It May
I would like to make
a formal complaint about a problem with Lot #_____________.
Describe the problem in detail. If there is junk in the yard, donít
just say junk. List specific items and where they are placed in the
yard and how long they have been there. If the problem is weeds,
tell how tall they are and how long since they have been cut. If the
problem has been going on for years, please let us know. If the
problem is some type of behavior on the part of the owner or guests
of the owner, give details about the behavior, specific dates and
times. If the police have been called reference the number on the
police report and the name of the investigating officer if
available. If the problem is a dog, give specific times that you
have seen the dog out or found evidence that it has been in your
yard. The more details, the better.
Thank you for your Consideration.
