TIMBER LAKES ROAD UPDATE Dear Timber Lakes Residents: As the weather changes, the autumn leaves fall and winter begins to settle in, I want to take some time and update the residents of Timber Lakes about the “winter plan.” The road crew assisted by Gordon Huetter and me has spent early mornings, late nights, long days and worked weekends to prepare the Timber Lakes roads for the upcoming winter season. The roads that have been graded, prepped and readied for winter thus far are listed below. However, please understand that these roads will still be maintained and graded a few more times before the ground actually hardens to the point that that our road crew can no longer grade until spring. The roads listed are the main arteries or side roads that branch off of the main roads.

A Big Thank You to Connie Hadley and Changes in the Timber Lakes Office The new year always brings change of some type to our lives and this year the Timber Lakes office is participating. As the new year commences we extend a huge thank you and vote of appreciation to Connie Hadley for serving the Timber Lakes community for the past two years as our office representative. Connie stepped in during a time of transition and turmoil, and gave us help just when we needed it most. Now, at the start of 2010, Connie and her husband, LaMar, have put their cabin on the market and have told us that it’s time for her to hang up the saddle. With her departure we extend a heart-felt thanks for her time and dedication to making Timber Lakes a better place. Stepping into the office responsibility is our newest Timber Lakes employee, Martha Lackman. Martha and her husband have been full- time residents on the mountain for the past 10 years and she comes to us with a wealth of experience. She has been involved in successful advertising and marketing businesses for many years, including work with Clear Channel, Bonneville, and Fox networks. Martha has a positive can-do attitude and we expect her to be a great presence in the office. She is now to a position in life where sticking closer to home is an advantage and we look forward to having her handle our office affairs as well as helping in other capacities, where needed, on the mountain. In an attempt to accommodate the needs of more Timber Lakes residents we are announcing that the office (and Martha) now have new hours, effective immediately,

Property Owners, we still need to fill two vacant positions. We need your help to do that. Ideally we would prefer candidates with some experience in the vacant areas: One position, as Treasurer, would benefit from someone with experience in accounting, treasury, finance, or in running a business. The other position would benefit from someone with some background in construction or one of the associated trades. There is eight months left on one term, and 18 months on the other one. We request any owner who is interested in helping us out on the board, to please email a resume to any board member. We also need you to complete this application form and return it to me. We need your help and thank you for considering this; we cannot run the mountain effectively with a reduced board. Ole Smith Vice President - Administration vp-admin@TimberLakesUtah.com
With regret, we announce the resignations of Roger Legare and Gifford Ely from the Timber Lakes Board of Directors. Both of these men have recently sold their cabins and are no longer eligible to serve as a Director. We wish to thank both of them for their service to the mountain and wish them well. In the meantime, we need to fill the two vacant positions. Ideally we would prefer candidates with some experience in the vacant areas: One position, as Treasurer, would benefit from someone with experience in accounting, treasury, finance, or in running a business. The other position would benefit from someone with some background in construction or one of the associated trades. There is eight months left on one term, and 18 months on the other one. We request any owner who is interested in helping us out on the board, to please email a resume to any board member. We need your help. Thanks for considering this.

We are asking for volunteers to come help us plant 31 trees at the site of the new vehicle storage building. We will meet at the site at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, October 11. We need 15-20 people. Please bring your gloves and a shovel. We will have a backhoe and operator on site. If you have a wheelbarrow, it might come in handy. We will be planting the trees along the back (east side) of the building. If you can help, please email Ole Smith so we know how many people to count on. Thanks.
Please be informed that this Friday and/or Saturday (September 19-20) there will be a controlled burn on our neighbor’s property, the LDS Church Heber Valley Camp. This fire has been approved and authorized by the County and the County Fire Marshall will personally be there to oversee things. The area of the burn has been cleared and is devoid of combustible material to ensure safety. The Camp has recommended to the County and to the Board that the burn occur now, rather than in another month or two for one significant reason. Right now, the work can be attended to and watched over by a literal army of missionaries, however, the missionaries will terminate their service in the next 2 weeks and then the burn would have to occur with only a handful of people. The County and the Board think it is a wise decision to do it now and agree with the request. Why the burn? Interestingly enough, it is for us, Timber Lakes. As you may know all our water in Timber Lakes comes from springs on the property owned by the Church camp. There is an agreement that allows our water company to enter their property in order to develop the springs. The Water Company has been working on that project this summer and has now tapped into the springs. Next year new water tanks will be constructed in the areas cleared out around the springs and we will have sufficient water again for our community. However, a quantity of trees and brush had to be removed in order to develop the springs and clear the surrounding areas needed for the tanks. It is that material that will be burned. Or,
Dear Property Owners, I have two items I would like to share with you this weekend regarding our maintenance building. One is the progress of the construction, the other is its appearance and what we are doing about it. First - the building is moving along right on schedule. The shell is almost complete, with only the front side (where all the bay doors are located) and some odds and ends left to go. As soon as that part is complete we will install the bay doors and the man doors, and the building will be totally enclosed. Then we will continue with the other areas of construction including the exterior grading, road materials bins, and
