VANDALISMVANDALISM - 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 a BB.

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.


WATER 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 specific times.

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.

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.
