On Oct 19, there will be a lake front bonfire.  This event will start at 8pm and will go to 11pm (or longer). Bring your chairs and beverages.  Bugs should be gone and, hopefully, the lake will be at normal levels.

ATTENTION      ATTENTION     ATTENTION

There have been numerous complaints.   Please remember that we are not a golf cart community.   Since spring there has been a sudden and large increase in golf carts and ATVs on our roadways.  It has been observed that operation has included these vehicles driven by drivers under 16 yoa.  Operation of golf carts and ATVs on the streets of the subdivision is illegal. The sheriff can ticket you and confiscate the vehicle.

There has been talk about getting golf carts okayed to be operated.  However, the law limits the operation to drivers possessing a valid license and at least 16 years old.  The cart must also be street legal (lights, turn signals, windshields and insured). ATVs can never be made street legal therefore never be allowed.

Until it is approved by the board be forewarned.  The sheriff will be called, operators will be ticketed, and possible vehicle impoundment.

Sept 16, 2018

Lake County Public Works semi-annual water hydrant flushing program has begun!  Hydrant flushing will be performed daily, Monday through Friday, between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m., per the hydrant flushing schedule and will continue until all water mains throughout the system have been flushed.  After hydrant flushing you may notice a slight discoloration of the water. Residents are urged not to do laundry during periods of flushing in your area to avoid staining of clothing, which may occur due to the disturbance in the water main. This is not harmful and will dissipate after a short time. It is recommended to run cold water for several minutes to clear your pipes.

The anticipated completion date is October 26, 2018. Signs will be posted in each area before the start of hydrant flushing. Please visit the Lake County Public Works website for the complete hydrant flushing schedule or call 847-377-7500.

Our Annual Meeting

Just a reminder, in case the Spotlite and the post card is forgotten,  our annual meeting is Tuesday Sept 18, 2018.  It will be held at the usual meeting location Lake Villa Township Community Center 37850 Route 59 Lake Villa, Illinois.  This meeting starts at 7pm.  Topic will be: Association Fees, Election of Board members, the 2018/2019 budget & projects, and introduction of Associa-Chicagoland as our new management company.   All questions will be answered.  All members are welcome to attend.  However, only those in good standing are allowed to vote.  I hope to see lots of residents in attendance.

ASSOCIA-Chicagoland

As of Sept 01, 2018 Associa is our management company.  After 2 full years with ACM, the board decided to change it for what will be hopefully, a better fit.  By now, all residents should have received a welcome packet from Associa.  This packet is generic in nature.  Many things it do not apply to FLHPOA.  Direct debit, vehicle information, and non-family members living in the residence.  These are for associations that have monthly fees, are using a common parking lot or a doorman to buzz guests up.  Just submit the information that pertains to our oddly unique association.

The requested property address, names of owners and billing address is important.  It will be used to verify the records Associa received from ACM.  It also aids the board to verify it’s records.  Believe it or not properties have changed hands without our knowledge and caused billings to go the wrong people.

Yes the association fees can be mailed in.  That has not changed except for the mailing address.  This new mailing address can be found on the Associa page within this site.  No one is being forced to use direct debit, e-checks, or credit cards.  As with all bills, (utilities, mortgage, cable, etc) it is only an option.  Not mandatory.

Lastly, your account numbers will be sent via mail in late October or November on your billing statement.  FLHPOA will be sending it out along with other information as was posted previously.   If you want your account number before then, please contact Associa customer care 847-882-8207.  They will be glad to look your number up for you.

Sept 2, 2018

TOWN SQUARE is a blog used and created by Associa.  It is a lot like Next Door and as such the board does not endorse nor support it’s use.  The use of it is solely the choice of FLHPOA residence.  The only upside is that only FLHPOA are able to login.   No one out side our membership is allowed on it.  The board will not be monitoring or checking it for any complaints, issues, or to answer questions.

August 24, 2018

Movie night is tonight (weather permitting).

August 24, 2018

The association will be replacing ACM as our management company.  Starting 01 Sept 2018, Associa Chicagoland will be taking over and the board is hoping it will be a smooth transition.   Check back for the new contact information..  The board will also be sending out packets to every property that will contain a letter explaining the packets contents, the 2019 association fee bill, the 2018/2019 budget, a graph of how your money is spent, as well as other information.

August 7, 2018

This is just a reminder that this Sunday, August 12th, is the FLHPOA resident picnic.  It will be held at the pavilion from 1pm to 4pm.  Residents are asked to bring their own beverages.  Please RSVP to flhpoa.fun@gmail.com so that food can be available for all.  Look forward to seeing new faces and meeting people.

Here is the petition.   Feel free to print it and have your neighbors sign it.  Then just return it to me and I’ll get it to the right people.  Remember, the flooding and vast changes in water levels on the chain effect all of us.   Corp of Engineer’s Petition.

July 10, 2018

There is a petition being circulated by a couple of local residents from the other side of the lake.  It has to do with getting the Army Corp of Engineers to address our problem with waterway flooding ( every year it closes).   I will have a copy up shortly that can be printed,  past around and signed.  It doesn’t matter if you are or are not lake front.   Anyone that uses the waterway can sign it.   I will collect them and get them to the organizer.

FLHPOA Residents can, during the month of June, exchange their 64 gallon Recycling Cans for a 96 gallon can free of charge.   Call 800-796-9696 or go to home.wm.com/lake-villa-township to sign up.  It is a little tricky to find tho.  Scoll down to Useful Guidelines, click Recycling, then scroll down to Request Container Repair or Replacement…………I think calling would be easier.
