Statement from Douglas Pitkin (our Landscaping Contractor) September 30, 2006

We have been conducting spraying operations on the Davis Lake pond during the last several weeks. We have applied the aquatic chemical as per the recommended rates in order to insure a proper and safe eventual eradication. Some of the weeds and vines are extremely hard to control and take many applications to eliminate. Since there is no documented history on what has been successful in the past, we are using the process that is recommended from the vendor providing the chemicals.

We must all keep in mind that this situation did not occur overnight and while we are working diligently, it will take time to completely resolve.

We appreciate your patience and support on this project.

The Rental Amendment has not passed. 572 votes were needed for the amendment to win, but the final vote count is 547 votes in favor. Yes, we were 25 votes short, but we’ll come back stronger and get this amendment passed! The board’s next meeting on November 30th will not be open to the community, instead it will be closed session only to discuss this matter and others that are also pressing and time-sensitive. Updates to the community will be forthcoming and community feedback will by sought on the amendment process and future amendment options.
