Rainbow Alert #2

Timber Lakes Owners: We have been notified by the Wasatch County Sheriff that the Rainbow Family of Living Light World Peace and Healing Gathering has moved its location to the following coordinates: 40˚ 25’ 39.4” N and 111˚ 09’ 42.4” W. This is approximately three miles southeast of our most eastern Timber Lakes border and is about six miles closer to us than their previous location.

Meeting and Stickers

Timber Lakes Owners: 1. Reminder about our February 19 Board Meeting. Check the private site for the details and location. 2. Make sure you obtain your snowmobile stickers! As the number of owners and their guests visiting Timber Lakes continues to increase substantially each season, it is essential that all owners adhere to our policies. This being said, please remember that annual TLPOA stickers are required on all “non-street legal” (not registered with the DMV) motorized vehicles operating in Timber Lakes. This includes snowmobiles, ATVs, side-by-sides, motorcycles, etc. This is important for security and to help emergency personnel identify your property in the event of an accident. Only TLPOA lot owners can obtain these stickers. TLPOA owners must obtain these stickers for their guests too. To get your stickers, a separate Request for an Entertainment Operating Permit by Lot Owner form must be completed by an owner for each ATV, snowmobile, side-by-side, motorcycle, etc. These forms must be filled out, signed and paid for before stickers can be issued. You can fill out your forms ahead of time, either in person at the gate or office, or by mail. Security or the office confirm ownership before issuing stickers. Download the form here. Note: If you are stopping at the gate house to get your stickers, please pull to the right so you’re not blocking the gate while you take care of business. Thanks and we hope to see you at the Board Meeting. Theresa Gubler for the TLPOA Board

November Board Meeting Change & Chips

Timber Lakes Owners: I know that you have just received your most recent mailing of the Timber Lakes Times newsletter, showing upcoming board meetings, but we have had to reschedule the date of our November meetings. We are holding them on Wednesday, November 20, 2013 rather than on November 13 as stated in the newsletter. We apologize if this inconveniences you. We do appreciate the attendance and participation of our owners. As always, the location and time of the November meetings is posted on our Owners-only private site. Click here to login to that site. Also, you may have noticed several huge chip piles in the main parking area next to our office. Thanks to every owner who took the time to clean up your lots(s) and contribute timber to the wood pile. It has now been chipped and is available to owners for your Timber Lake projects. Feel free to take all you want (for your Timber Lakes projects). Don't let a little snow this week (five inches up on top) keep you from finishing up your lot landscaping.

Free Wood Chips

The wood chips in the main parking lot are available for any  Timber Lakes Property Owner. On Memorial Day, from 9:00 - 11:00, there will be a loader standing by to help you load chips onto your trailer or in your truck bed.  Marini, our new General Manager, has volunteered to assist with running the loader. This will be a good opportunity to introduce yourself and meet him. The deposit pile is open for dumping dead wood, logs, and branches as of Memorial Day.  No lumber, construction material, weeds, or any non organic material can be put in the pile. Please help us get the Utah state grant money available to cover the cost of the chipping and other fire prevention efforts in Timber Lakes.   Be sure to fill out the form each time you clear dead fall from your lot(s). A matching grant form will be available on site, and everyone is requested to fill one out when depositing materials. Thank you, Theresa Gubler Timber Lakes Board
