WESTLAKE LAKE MANAGEMENT ASSOCIATION
PAST PRESIDENT MESSAGES
July 5, 2022
Dear WLMA Board Members:
I hope you all had a fantastic 4th of July! I’m happy and proud to say that we had zero incidents on the lake. I spoke to Nick our Lake Manager, this morning and there were only a few, veryminor issues; lack of proper boat lighting (check your boat lights!), and a few life jacket sightings. All in all, a very successful and happy 4th. Many thanks to all who helped make this a great celebration, keeping the lake safe and clean!! I want to thank Nick and all our crew who were so very visible on the lake.
Just a couple reminders for this month:
**Tuesday, July 19, General Board Meeting**
Westlake Yacht Club
GUEST SPEAKER: Ret. Adm. Tim Sullivan
“Emergency Action Plan”
We advise all of you to attend, as this will be a very information meeting for our lake and
WEDNESDAY, July 27
Carl Koenig Retirement Dinner
5:30 PM, Westlake Yacht Club
You should have received an email invitation to the dinner. If you have not responded, please do so now.
We will be “dark” for the month of August, but the Executive Board will continue to meet and ensure that all is well!
The lake is looking great. I saw our maintenance guys out on the water Monday, cleaning up any debris on the water.
Our office is improving its security. Cameras are being installed, and we are bringing the office up into our modern technology. With that in mind, a reminder to all that if you know someone in
your district who has not supplied the office with an email address, please help them do so. If they are “technically challenged”, they will continue to get information through you or in the mail.
If you have any questions or comments, you can email me directly or through the WLMA office email address. HAVE A GREAT SUMMER!
August 4, 2022
Dear WLMA Board Members:
Hope you’re enjoying your summer, and this month OFF, from our regular board meetings!
The Executive Board met this Tuesday and we’re continuing to oversee lake operations and management along with Nick Smith (Lake Manager).
You will receive our minutes in the September board packet, and you can review Nick’s Lake Report on our website: www.westlake-lake.com. The website is up and running and it looks great!
A couple of points to note: Nick and Steve Patterson have spent days cleaning out the debris below the dam, and reviewing the drains below the dam to insert cameras for inspections.
Our “Operations and Lake Management” book is in the process of updating and review.
We wish to thank Ret.Rear Admiral Tim Sullivan for his excellent presentation on our EAP (Emergency
Action Plan) which is still in review with the governmental agency. We have “high” hopes of its completion soon!
Nick and Steve have had great success with installing aeration unit(s) on specific docks to circulate the water whereby algae are somewhat dissipated. It has improved the clarity of the water in those areas. There will be more discussion on this in September, and hoping to add additional units in specific fingers.
In October, Community Outreach with Linda Catlin and Chip Lightfoot and our Investment Committee, will have a Morgan Stanley presentation from 4:30-5:30. If you’re interested in our investment policy thus far, I ask that you attend.
The budget for 2023 is being prepared and will be presented in the next few months, once completed. As you may guess, the costs of “everything” has significantly risen. We are working on maintaining the management and operations of our lake and staff with that in mind.
If you did not attend, the Retirement party for Carl Koenig was a great success. He was overwhelmed with the participation and the heartwarming cards and gifts. WLMA gave Carl one of his “WLMA” shirts, framed!!!
He loved it! Special thanks to Debbie Denton and Anna Molina for putting that together.
Enjoy your vacation!
Lisa Carl, President
