The end of Board Alerts – the beginning of something better

Dear Board Alert Subscribers: Board Alerts We are pleased to announce that we are retiring our Board Alert email software. This is the last one you will receive. We are replacing this outdated system with a better one. We have been using the Board Alert software for more than 6 years and it has served us well. One of the problems with using Board Alerts is that we are unable to send emails to all of our owners because of technical problems arising from spammers. TOPS email alerts Along with our new management company, we have also initiated the use of TOPS community management software as our database of property owners. TOPS is the most commonly used management software for HOAs and POAs in the country. TOPS allows us to send email email to every owner for whom we have an email address and is much simpler to use than Board Alerts. There is no requirement to subscribe to the TOPS email alerts; if we have your email address, you will receive the alerts. If you do not wish to receive the alerts, you can simply unsubscribe following the instructions posted at the bottom of each alert. We have 723 subscribers to our old Board Alerts software. If you are a Timber Lakes property owner, you will automatically receive TOPS email alerts; you do not have to do anything. If you are not an owner, you will no longer receive our email alerts and if you wish to receive future email alerts, you will need to purchase property in Timber Lakes. The new email alerts will also be posted on our owners-only private website. They will no longer be posted on the public website. New

Annual Meeting and a bunch of other stuff

Dear Timber Lakes Owner: This may be a duplicate of this message. If so, we apologize. We are in the process of changing databases and are sending this message to the owners in the old database, as well as toothless in the new. Magnesium Chloride Test Site Tuesday, July 7, Timber Lakes is applying a magnesium chloride mixture on part of Blue Spruce Drive and sections of a few additional roads in the subdivision. We are testing this treatment to determine how much it will help bind the road product (prevent it from wearing away as quickly), prevent washboard and help keep the dust down. On July 7, Blue Spruce and other roads will be closed to through traffic and all construction vehicles. You should refrain from driving on those roads on that day. We will have detour signs in place. For local traffic only, you must DRIVE EXTREMELY SLOW (Maximum 3 MPH) or you will break up the finished application and possibly get the mixture on your car. If you do not follow this advice we are not responsible for any magnesium chloride on your vehicle. NOTICE OF TLPOA ANNUAL MEETING The Annual Meeting of the Timber Lakes Property Owners Association will be held on Saturday, July 11, 2015, at the Wasatch County Sr. Citizen Center at 10:00 a.m. Check-in begins at 9:00 a.m. The Center is located at 465 East 1200 South in Heber City, Utah.
