Manor Lands Association Acquiring New Fire Truck

Manor Lands needs a better fire truck to use within the association. This new truck will enhance our ability to deal with fires within Manor Lands since the Federal Excess Personal Property (FEPP) equipment provided to the association was meant only for wildland fires outside of Manor Lands and the association was not allowed to use the equipment within the association.

The Evanston, WY fire department had this 1983 GMC for sale.  It has a 350 gallon water tank and just over 18K miles.

Manor Lands has agreed to purchase it for $5,000.Manor Lands 1983 GMC, 350 gallon water tank, just over 18K miles

Approval to purchase a fire truck was voted on and approved at the 2015 Annual Membership Meeting.

A message from Wes Johnson, MLPOA President.

“We have recently had some incidents within Manor Lands that have required the attention of various law enforcement agencies.

It is vital that all of our Members be diligent about what is happening around our association.  If you see something that does not look right please contact a board member or our Caretaker.  If you see a breakin or theft occuring call 911.  Gather information, we do have our own incident report that you can fill out, these are available from the Caretaker.  The sooner you get the information on paper the better.

Speeding, and riding OHV’s by those under 16 years of age without proper protective equipment, will not be tolerated. We are in the process of contracting with Summit County Sheriffs department to have them patrol Manor Lands on occasion.  They will be writing tickets.

Further, if someone arrives at a gate and wants in, but does not have a key, DO NOT LET THEM IN.  Ask to see a gate key, if they do not have a key tell them to wait outside the gate until the member they are the guest of shows up to let them in.  Also advise them not to block the gate.”

The DNR will be on property Monday, June 8th to do chipping of your slash.

They are bringing a very large chipper and 8 to 10 men to feed the chipper.

I know this is short notice but it is an excellent opportunity to get rid of our slash.

Please stack your slash by the side of the road, butt ends facing the road, no more than 3 feet tall.

The chipper will take material up to 8 inches in diameter if it is cut in manageable lengths.
