- Hello Members of HLA, last weekend crime infiltrated
our mountain community. Sometime during the weekend
someone shot the window out of our primary contractor
Brad Georgie's track-hoe with a BB gun. Brad had been at
our association working on the water system, deadfall
remediation and bridge improvements. Brad agreed to
leave his equipment to save our association money in
transport cost. Brad parked his equipment at the main
intersection of Mountainside to continue his work
Monday. Upon his return to his equipment he discovered
the shattered window and indications the projectile was
Brad has taken the equipment to be
repaired and the Board has agreed to pay for the window.
Brad's equipment is now out of service while being fixed
so he can safely operate it. This senseless crime has
cost Brad time from his living with loss of the
equipment use. It has also now cost every single one of
us money from our association operating costs that could
have been used for many different necessary upgrades and
repairs. We think this repair will be on the order of
$800 to $1000 dollars.
This act of vandalism has been reported to the Summit
County Sheriff's Office and they are currently
investigating. HLA is asking anyone who may have seen
anything or anyone with a BB gun to contact any member
of the board or the Sheriff's Office directly to report
what they saw in hopes of making an arrest in this case.
Two generous HLA members have come forward after hearing
about this crime and offered $100 each as a reward for
the arrest and conviction of the subject(s) responsible.
A special President's Message to our owners will be
coming soon that further explains this and other
developing situations. Until then please keep vigilant
and do not hesitate to contact law enforcement when you
know of or observe a crime.
SYSTEM TESTING & POSSIBLE WATER DISRUPTION
- From Watermasters Clark HIll and Bret Christianson,
currenlty Clark & Bret are conducting valve tests and
water line exploration to more accurately determine what
each valve does and the condition of lines throughout
the association. During this phase of the water system
audit you may experience some water outages. From time
to time and in certain areas you may see Clark testing
water pressures at the service connection to your cabin.
Please let him know how your pressure is and has been
especially if youve noiced pressure reductions during
NOTICE TO HLA MEMBERS WITH CONTIGUOUS LOTS - From
Many members with contiguous lots have wanted to combine them
into one lot. That has in the past proven to be difficult
and costly to do. The HLA Board has had an objective to try
and assist these members to do this and we now have a one
time opportunity for these members to combine lots and
likely reduce your Summit County taxes.
Board Member Sue Pollard worked out a one time deal with
Summit County to combine lots in Hidden Lake Association for
only $540.00 to be divided between all participating
members. There will also mailing costs to surrounding lots
for notification and a survey of the lots being combines at
a cost of $200.00 to $400.00 to each HLA member who takes
advantage of this opportunity.
For more information or to start the process call Garl Fink
801 966 2026 or 801 558 1279.

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

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.
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.
