WATER SAFE - BOIL ALERT LIFTED
As of 10-5-2017, Summit County Health has confirmed the water from the middle spring is safe. We are removing the boil water alert.

HLA Water Committee
SEPTEMBER SPECIAL ASSSEMENT

In our last Board meeting, some attending cabin owners expressed concern about the boards decision to outsource the financial responsibilities to Intermountain Association Management www.IAMHOA.com . I have created a full response to address their concerns, Click Here to read it in its entity. Also note, we purposefully waited to send out this response so as not to interfere with communicating the extreme importance of the urgent water communication sent earlier this week.

All members should have received a personalized multi-paged letter back in August. Click Here to read a generic version of it's content.

The following is a summary of our outsourcing decision:

The volunteer who had been doing the financial work for last 4 years, resigned as of July 31st.

These financial responsibilities are required for the operation of the Hidden Lake Association.

The board has asked for volunteers, to date no one has agreed to take on these responsibilities.

We arranged for a 9 month outsourcing relationship costing $7.50/month per member for a total of $67.50

This was not budgeted for and is why we all received this request for payment.

IAMHOA's mailing address is:

Intermountain Association Management
P.O. Box 155
Draper, UT 84020

Our IAMHOA Account Manager is:

Sara McConkie, CMCA, AMS
Owner/ Association Manager
Intermountain Association Management
sara@iamhoa.com
801.893.1755

IAMHOA makes use of a collection processing organization located in Las Vegas NV.

IAMHOA uses Alliance Association Bank for banking services.

IAMHOA uses Caliber.Cloud software as their account login site/portal

An online payment option is available but service fees will apply, follow the link under Member Services on the HLA web page.


I am sorry for the confusion on this matter, but the financial responsibilities must continue in order for our organization to operate. If you are interested in taking on this role please contact me or any board member.
Bob Kooyman, President



WATER SYSTEM UPDATE POWERPOINT BY CLARK HILL (CLICK THIS  LINK) - Members please take a moment and look at the PowerPoint by clicking on the blue link above. Clark Hill created the presentation for the membership to see what was accomplished this year with your water system. Clark transformation at the bridge this year. More exciting improvements to come!

IMPORTANT WATER SYSTEM INFORMATION REGARDING PRESSURE REDUCTION VALVES :

Over the past 3-4 years HLA has made major improvements in our water system.  Some of these include replacing 1-2 inch lines with 4 inch BLUE BRUTE lines.  We have dug up, identified  and made changes at the water storage tanks.  We have installed  isolation valves to assist in locating leaks.  We are currently replacing a one inch line with a four inch BLUE BRUTE line as that line needs to provide delivery service to three additional cabins.  One of our major goals is to provide redundancy to the delivery system and this new line will eventually be tied with one of the two new lines from the lake tanks. Eventually all four inch lines will be interconnected. These changes have allowed our system to increase water pressure to more acceptable levels of service at the highest points in HLA.  This is possible as the water stored in these new pipes has increased by 200-400 percent increasing gravitational push and helping us comply with state water delivery requirements.

Pressures have increased from sometimes 20 pounds (top of Aspen Loop) to up to 140 pounds at the cabins on Weber drive. This now requires that ALL cabins install pressure reduction valves in the line between your water meter and your cabin.  These PRVs have been required in new construction for over 15 years.  It is recommended that the installation be performed prior to turning on your water in the springtime.  A main line PRV will be installed at the top of Weber Drive next spring.  Installing one of these further up River Vu would have the effect of reducing the water pressure at the top of Aspen Loop to unacceptable levels.

Our goal is to replace all obsolete (too small and brittle) lines over the next 3-5 years.

Special thanks to the water committee, especially Clark Hill who has spent over 400 volunteer hours this year.  Bret Christiansen has done an incredible job of documenting our system which is a request that has not been met in almost two decades. As the documentation continues an effort to gather historical documents from past water directors and committees members will continue and all documentation will be scanned and kept digitally for our future generations to more completely understand our decisions today and control costs as the system develops and is replaced with modern engineering systems and materials.

Clark Hill has prepared a comprehensive PowerPoint for the membership. Please click this link to view.

FIREWORKS PROHIBITED - HLA would like to remind members, family and guests that all types of fireworks are prohibited (yes, even sparklers & snaps) within the association to include private property, common areas and green space during the entire year. Violators will be fined up to $500.00

PROPANE SUPPLIER ENTRY - The following five propane companies have been authorized to enter HLA to service customers.  Each company has been provided a FOB (frequency operated button) registered to that particular company.  Codes previously issued have been removed from the Security Gate System.  Any member who uses a supplier other than the five listed must escort that supplier into HLA. 

The propane companies are presented in no particular order and members are encouraged to shop the suppliers for the best price.

ATV CERTIFICATION - You can now get your child ATV certified on-line for $30. Go to http://stateparks.utah.gov/ohv/education for more information.

Hidden Lake Association requires any person under the age of 16 (or any person without a Utah Driver's License) operating an Off-Highway Vehicle on HLA Corporation property to possess a valid Utah OHV certificate. Property owners can be fined by HLA BoD for violations of this rule.

Also, any person under the age of 18 is required to wear a helmet while operating an OHV  on HLA Corporation property. If you are over 18 it certainly is a good example to wear a helmet and it can save your life!

LAKE FISHING - The Hidden Lake will be planted by a private vendor and paid for through HLA funds. The Hidden Lake is private property and is entirely within the boundaries of the Hidden Lake Association. Currently the lake suffers complete winter kill each year and there is no state funded fish left in the lake. Based on this information the lake has been deemed by the Directors as a private lake for fishing by members and their approved guests only, with unauthorized people being officially trespassed per this notification and gate signage. Additionally, the Directors voted to control fishing by implementing the policy of TWO FISH PER DAY PER CABIN.

HIDDEN LAKE HISTORY - In 2003 then President Dean Carr researched and authored a summary of our history based on the minutes from meetings over many decades. The book was bound and offered for a minimal price to cover the production cost. This week Dean offered to release the document as a MS Word document. It is available for download in the document services section. Enjoy learning or for some members reliving our interesting past.

codeRED - Summit County codeRED system is a reverse 911 system that alerts landlines, cell phones, and VOIPs of critical public safety matters, utility outages, missing persons, evacuations or other matters deemed important by county officials. codeRED is available for sign-up here. Please sign-up today! Cell phones welcome.

NON-PAYMENT OF DUES - If you find that your FOB does not activate the gate and/or your water has been shut-off, you have likely been deactivated due to non-payment of dues. Please contact Ways & Means Director or Treasurer for more information.
