Weather

Our rains are still here.  Some of these rains have been accompanied by major winds.  Please check on your vacant neighbors’ homes for damage after any of these storms.  In the past we have had a tree break through a roof and the damage was not found for weeks.  This resulted in major losses inside the house. 

We have also had many reports of bears that are out there and hungry.  Please keep food stuffs off decks and secure your trash.

Good Neighbors

Along with watching out for each other’s homes, let’s also watch out for each other by checking our speed in the community.

Please respect the covenants and regulations of the community by running any major changes or additions to your housing and property by our Architectural Control Committee.

If you are confronted any dangerous animals, either wild or domestic, please contact Transylvania County Animal Control at (828) 883-3713.

New Street Signs

We thank our Beautification Committee for the construction and installation of our new street signs. 

Dam Repairs

We have contracted with Blue Earth, out of Asheville, to conduct an H & H Study.  This study is required by the state and is a major step towards resolving our dam issues.  More information regarding this will be available on our website in the Dam Committee report for our Annual Meeting.

Water System

Our water system is in very good shape.  We did have one of our large supply pipes rupture during a violent electrical storm last month.  It was repaired by ACL Plumbing (828-553-1064)  They take care of plumbing repairs and are also available to do septic system clean outs.

Notice for Renters

If you are renting out your home, please

(1) Notify your renters that the canoes and kayaks at the waterfront park are private.

(2) If you own a kayak or canoe please request the renters return the watercraft to its proper location on the racks and refrain from leaving trash, towels or clothing on the dock or canoe rack area.  Also, please advise renters to stay off the docks and property of other homes on the lakes.  This is beginning to be a problem.

(3) Request that your renters observe the speed limits in the community.

(4) With the increased bear activity this year please remind your renters to not leave any garbage outside or on decks.

Events

The Wednesday Gatherings have been pretty much a non-event due to Covid-19 and the daily rains.  Hopefully, the rains will slack off this fall and we can have some “socially distanced” gatherings.

The Labor Day Party is still canceled for this year.

Annual Meeting

Our Annual Meeting was scheduled for Saturday September 12th at 10:00am.  Due to Covid-19 and the restrictions we are under we will not be having an in-person meeting.  The Annual Meeting will instead be conducted via e-mail and USPS for those who do not have e-mail.

 It is particularly important that you return your Ballots for election of Board Members and approval of 2021 Budget so that we can continue to conduct the business of the Community. The ballots will be sent out shortly.

 Committee Reports for the year 2020 will be posted on our community website:  Indianlakeclubinc.com. under the Members Only section.  The password is ilc2010.  

If you have any issues or questions for the Board, please email your concerns to the Club; we will discuss these items at our Board Meeting on September 12 and will respond to you as soon as possible
