GENERAL MANAGERS MONTHLY REPORT 

FROM THE GENERAL MANAGER

Our condolences to the family of Patch Shacklette.  Patch was a long time resident of Doe Valley.  

Hope you all are having a great New Year!

1.  WWTP:   From the contractor, end of February now.  The input piping has to be redone and buried after the levy is widened and culverts extended…always something. 

2.  ROADS:  Still lucky but it’s wintertime.  We are ready with salt, brine and equipment.  Please exercise caution when the roads get slick.  Plan accordingly; give yourself plenty of time, slow down and get there safely.  If you don’t have to get out on bad days, please stay home; less traffic is better.  Maybe this drought means a dryer winter…we’ll see.  Try not to park your cars in the middle of cul-de-sacs or in areas that will make snow plowing difficult.  We can’t clear your mailboxes…you’ll have to do that yourself to ensure mail delivery and we don’t clear the end of your driveway.  Just like everywhere else, we plow the roads which will put the snow in your drive…you’ll have to clear it.  If you’re handicapped or physically unable to get out, call the Office and we will try and assist as much as possible.  Let your neighbors know also; we should all try and help each other. 

3.  TRAFFIC RULES: I know this is your subdivision and you may feel that the rules of the road don’t really apply to us in here.  Well, when it comes to safety, it applies everywhere.  The 4-way stop is getting ridiculous!  Many barely even slow down and probably 90% don’t stop at all.  Can we use some common sense here and better judgement?  If another car or two is at the 4-way, give way as you’re supposed to and be courteous.  If you were out in town, I doubt you’d just blow through intersection even if you were the only car.  Several close calls have been observed and called in lately and it seems to be getting worse.  I’ve come to a stop several times as an approaching car that hadn’t even reached the stop sign yet just kept on going and ignored me.  We’re asking for trouble and possible injuries.  Please obey the traffic laws; you may even ask, why am I always in such a hurry??? How about giving yourself more time, leave earlier, relax and enjoy the ride for a change.

3. BOATS AND DOCKS:  Keep an eye on your boats and personal docks when we have high winds.  A couple of them  have broken loose and took a while to find.  Notify the Office, the Marina and Security if yours is missing.

4. The Representative Council:  WE NEED A HAVENWOOD AND LAKEVIEW CONDOS REP…CALL ME!
