President Report

Sept 20, 2018

Hello Lake Members.  Another season is coming to an end.  The beach had a very successful closing weekend.. The weather was perfect.

Hopefully when you read this the maintenance will be complete. It looks great. Hats off to all of the people involved.

This coming Saturday is the Hops and Chops always a good time.  Hope you were able to make it to the party.  Also, Friday September 28th is the pig roast.  It also will be a good time. Hope to see you there. These projects are a lot of work and need your support. That’s what Lake Cable is all about-supporting

Trunks and treats will be on October 25th.

And lastly I need to mention Float Boat Day.   It’s coming to Fast—Oct.20th.  If you need a spot on the beach please contact the office or the float boat committee.  So, let us enjoy these last weeks of summer and be safe on the lake.

Use water vessels (paddle boards, floats, tubes, etc) as there are intended to be used. Creativity is not always a wise choice. Remember the lake is a privilege to be part of—not a right!!

Have fun and Be SAFE!

4. Hearing from the Membership:   Pat Camp – Pat was in attendance to ask the board a couple questions concerning the new maintenance building. Pat had thought that most of the construction of the building was going to involve mostly brick. She was not aware that we were using a wood type siding with a decorative stonework around the bottom. She did state that it does look nice so far. Also, she also wanted to remind the board that the board is not funding the expense of the building, but it is the membership that is paying for this project. Point taken Pat. Thanks for attending our board meeting.


5.  Managers’ Report:  Tom reported that the new maintenance building is coming along very well. It will only be a few more weeks till we can start the “Project Big Move” and get everything moved in before the snow flies. Also on Tom’s agenda is the tree trimming project. This will involve trimming trees near the new building site, Goat Island tree, the south side of Bass Commons and removing a dead pine at Crappie Commons. Tom has ordered this year’s stocking of $3,000.00 worth of Walleye and some Flat Head Minnows. This should be completed soon.

The shoe shop has been closed at the Shopping Center. Potential new tenants are being considered for this area. We hope to have a new tenant as soon as possible. Tom will update the board when this happens. It was reported that the plans for the new landscaping & fencing, across the front of the clubhouse, have been finalized. We look for this project to start soon. A final update from Tom was that the L.R.P.C. had applied for “Club” status with the association. See more information on this topic in the new business section of the newsletter. See more of Tom’s manager’s report elsewhere in the newsletter.

6.  Old Business:

A.  Trees – The clubhouse tree line project was discussed at length. Quotes have been obtained

and final decisions are being made. We are still in hope of moving forward on this project

before winter sets in.

B.  Maintenance Building – The building construction has is moving along real well. We

are not anticipation any problems in the future. As it stands now, the building is scheduled to

be completed sometime near the end of the first week of September.

C.  Shopping Center – The shoe shop is now closed at the center. We are currently looking at who

might be our next tenant for that area. This decision will be made soon.

D.  Lake Fines – There have been numerous fines issued this year for rule violations. Most were

safety issues, invalid stickers and general boating rules. The board is making every effort to

keep the lake safe for all of us. You are ask to please abide by the rules and have fun.

E.  Pollinator Garden Award – The Canton Garden club has presented the L.C.R.A. Trustees an

award for the new Pollinator garden located just behind the shopping center. This award will

be on display in the association office. Stop by and take a look.

F.  As was stated in last month’s newsletter, the Photo Contest has been canceled for this year.


7.  New Business:

A.  Pickle Ball Court – The board is getting pricing to expand the basketball court to a size that

would allow for Pickle Ball playing. We have had numerous requests to include this activity

near our beach area. The decision will be made soon if we want to continue to pursue this


B.  L.R.P.C. Club – The L.R.P.C. has requested that they form a new “Club” with the L.C.R.A.

By-Laws have been written and officers named as follows: Mike King, President; Gordon

Woolbert, Vice-President; Randy Cupari, Secretary; Andrea Arnold, Treasurer; Lee Vitale,

Trustee. A motion was made by Mr. Ken Roush to approve the addition of the “L.R.P.C.

Club” and was seconded by Mr. Phil Kirkbride. The motion passed and the new club can now

function as a separate club. Welcome, and the membership appreciates all your great work to

help improve our lake life here at Lake Cable.

C.  Money Market Account – We currently have $303,286.00 in our Money Market Account.

Some of this money will be used to finance the new maintenance building. The money will

then be returned to the account as the membership assessments come in starting in January

2019. By the end of the month, we plan on paying the initial amount of approx. $178,335.00

for general fund withdraws, the first draw from Scheetz Builders and return approx. $4,760

back to the Lake Fund account. At that point, the Money Market Account will have a balance

of approx. $120,000.00

D.  Maintenance Building – There was discussion concerning the new landscaping that we are

planning to do around the new maintenance building. A small mound will be placed behind

the building as a buffer between us and the neighbor’s property. It is planned now that we will

then possible place Hydrangea Lime lite type plant in this mound area. Other landscaping will

be decided on as we progress thru the project.


8.  The board went into executive session at 8:37pm to discuss personnel matters. No actions were

voted on and will be further discussed in the future. The board returned out of executive session

at: 8:50pm.

Dear Friends,

Where did the season go?  We were open for the last weekend of the season and the beach was packed!  Holly and Joni did a great job of inventory control in the concession stand and we had very little inventory left at closing; good job ladies!

The grass is still growing at a wicked pace but Steve and his crew are keeping up.  Steve is also doing some preliminary work for “The Big Move”.

There are several tree trimming projects that we are looking at.  A couple of trees near the new building need thinned and shaped, we have a dead tree at Crappie commons and quite a bit of work at Bass commons.   We will defer the Bass Commons work until the ground freezes due to the soft ground left by the township project

The lake held a good level despite the extended dry, hot spell.  Now we are attempting to get the water down a little but it keeps raining.

Walleye are on order for fall stocking.  Last year the ponds in Wisconsin froze before they could get into them and we received none.  We hope this will be a good year for stocking.

The new dock project is underway.  When complete it will fill quickly

Lake Cable Shoe Repair is out of business.  We tried to work with him to have access to the remaining inventory of people’s shoes but he took everything.  In addition, his phone number was disconnected and we have no way of contacting him.  We are in the process of discussions with potential tenants.

The new building is coming along very nicely.  In fact it is almost complete.  Work that is up to us includes fencing, asphalt work, interior painting and the landscape barrier along the west side of the property.

Joni has worked very hard to come up with a new registration form that comes through Quick Books.  This will save us time and money when collecting payments and printing annual registration forms.  Please be sure to return this form when paying your dues.  If you would like a copy of the form after paying we will be happy to make a copy.

No one came forward to run for the Board; consequently the election is over.  Congratulations to Bob Wynkoop and Ted Scheetz on their reelection to the Board of Trustees.  Their new term will be begin January 1, 2019 and run through December 31, 2020.

Have a great month,
