President’s Report January 16, 2019

               The winter of 2019 has finally found us.  Ice and snow are here for a while.

Speaking of ice- remember that the ice on the lake can look safe but it may not be. Watch for soft spots around the docks and anywhere someone has been ice fishing.  Make sure it is thick enough before going out on it.

Steve and his crew are busy getting settled into their new building.  The trees behind the building have been planted and the fence will be coming soon.

Work on the ladies locker room has begun. I was amazed at how big the room was when everything was out of there. The restroom will be ADA compliant. I think everyone will love the layout and the amount of room there is once it’s done.

The board spoke with Mr. Rick Miller who is going to publish a community magazine concerning the Lake Cable community. We have no control on this magazine or its contents. He is doing this on his own –and will be speaking to residents to get input. Just an FYI from me.

I would like to thank everyone who has paid their assessment in full and also all who have paid their dues for the year.

We are looking for a great year on the lake. We need everyone’s cooperation along the way.

Remember it’s a privilege to live at the lake- not a right. Respect the lake and it will respect you back.

Don’t forget the Fish Club’s raffle coming in March – always lots of fun!

Spring can’t be far away!!

Enjoy the lake:

3.  Communications & Correspondence:   Correspondence referred to executive session.

4. Hearing from the Membership:  The board heard from a guest speaker concerning the possibility of

having an exclusive color publication printed for the Lake Cable Association area. A local publishing

editor would like to have the boards blessing to pursue the publication of this magazine for all our

members. The board is not objecting at this time and will see how this process proceeds. The

publication will feature our members, and possibly, the activities around the lake. A similar

publication is also done for the residents of Glenmore. More on the subject will follow as needed.

5.  Managers’ Report: Tom gave the board an update as to the status of the new maintenance building.

He said that Steve and his crew are all moved in and are setting up their office and work areas. All is

well with that. Tom also said that some final stone facing work has been completed and the new

fencing around the building will be completed soon. Tom reported that he is getting a quote on

replacing the frame and top boards on the commons just behind the new building. The board will

decide if we should proceed or not. Membership annual dues are coming in as usual and the

collection of the assessment fees, for the new building and the patio remodel, are on track. Many

members are paying the total (3) year fees during the first year of collection. The ladies restroom/

locker room remodel is coming along well. The area needs to be ready by the start of the swimming

season. Please see more of Tom’s comments in his Manager’s Report elsewhere in the newsletter.

6.  Old Business:

A.  Clubhouse Carpet Cleaning – It was reported in the November newsletter that the clubhouse

carpet cleaning scheduled for mid-January would take place. Tom put the cleaning on the

schedule, and at this time, the cleaning has been completed for this year.

B.  Women’s restroom/ locker room. – As reported in the previous newsletter, we have started

the remodeling of the women’s restroom/locker room. Discussions and plans are continuing

and the demolition prior to the remodel has started. A small maintenance and storage area is

being planned, as well as, new walls, new flooring, lockers and handicap accessible ramps as

needed. An update will follow in next month’s newsletter.

C.  Maintenance BuildingIt was reported that the final small finishing touches are being

completed at the new maintenance building. Some of the outside work is planned and will

happen weather permitting. (fence work, etc.) Steve and his crew have made the move to the

building and are making the area functional as to their needs. Two new overhead door openers

were added due to the weight of the doors, and a slight adjustment of a clean-up sink height,

has been completed. The crew loves their new work area.

7.  New Business:

A.  Shopping Center – A new HVAC unit, and possibly an air condition system, is being evaluated

in the new Antique store of the shopping center. A decision will be made prior to the

upcoming summer season.

B.  Old Wood Fencing – It was reported that our maintenance crew has started to work on

removing the old wood fencing in the rear of the clubhouse to free up the space for

the new patio coming in the spring. This will give the L.R.P.C. a better view of the future patio

footprint. The new patio planning is ongoing thru the winter months.

C.  Main Office Painting Tom is continuing to work on the beautification of the association

office. Currently, all the office panels are being painted. This is a long process due to the paint

drying times and the cooler weather. Things are coming along and looking well.

D.  Rear Deck changes – Due to the need for handicap accessibility from the new patio, to the

newly soon to be remodeled women’s restroom/locker room, plans are being discussed to

see how much of the decking (behind the Dunlap Room) will need to be removed to get a

passage way for handicap accessibility between the two areas. The association and the

L.R.P.C. are trying to select the best way to handle this modification. The decking that remains

will have new top boards installed. This decking is in need of replacement due to many years

of use and weather conditions. Now is the time to do this upgrade.

8.  The board went into executive session at 8:18pm to discuss the sale of the West Blvd Lot; shopping

center lease options; shopping center business tenant rent issues and future social memberships.

All these items were discussed and will be decided on in the near future. The board returned from

executive session at 8:37pm.

9.  A motion was made by Mr. Ted Scheetz to adjourn the meeting. The motion was seconded by

Mr. Bob Wynkoop. The motion passed, and the meeting was adjourned at 8:38pm.

Submitted by Board Secretary – Mr. Ken Roush  




Lots of things happened in January.  We had the 25 year old plus carpets cleansed and they still look good.  Hard to justify changing them for that reason but it will be considered as planning goes for future updates to the clubhouse.

Steve hand his crew were busy demoing the Women’s locker room for remodeling.  The more we tore out the more we found needs replaced.  We have a plan and are putting the finishing touches on it so we can get going.  I think the women will be happy with the results.  Not only will it be more attractive but will be handicap accessible.  In addition to the upgrade of the locker room we are making room for a “maintenance area”.  We still need space here at the clubhouse for a utility sink and storage for mops, brooms, sweepers and items used on a daily basis.  May 25th may be four months away but to us around here it seems much closer.

Steve is putting finishing touches on the new maintenance building.  The landscape buffer was installed a couple of weeks ago and looks great.  Fencing may or may not be in by the time you read this.

This coming summer you will be able to see the clubhouse from the lake.  Not sure what the view will be but there won’t be a dumpster.  Things are taking shape but getting water to drain to the lake has always been a challenge.  It will even be a greater challenge for the new patio.

Up to the day I wrote this we had 250 paid up members.  If you have not paid your dues by the time you read this, sorry you’re late.  Thanks for extra $100.

I talked with representatives from Dominion Ohio concerning their plan to replace the gas lines in the lake.  They considered going around the lake either north or south and concluded there were too many hurdles to go either direction.  Their latest plan involves rerouting the lines from East Blvd up lower Stuber Dr to Crappie Commons.  Down the commons to the lake then tunnel 45 feet under the lake all the way to their West Blvd property.  They are in the process of drilling test holes and will let us know what develops.

Are you participating in the Polar Bear Plunge?  I am!  I’m going to sponsor someone crazy enough to go in the water in February.  Did it myself a long time ago and vowed at the time, NEVER AGAIN!

Tickets for the Fish Club Reverse Raffle are going fast, don’t wait, get your ticket now!  It’s always a good time.

Finally, brick sales are going well.  Don’t be left out.  When you bring friends to the beach and they ask, “Where’s your brick?”   Don’t be embarrassed, point to it.

Have a great month!
