ALL wildlife within Manor Lands is protected by state law, with the exception of coyotes, skunks, and raccoons. However, these may only be taken if they pose a threat or become a nuisance.
Just a reminder – if we are within a RED FLAG WARNING – ALL open fires, including campfires, are prohibited. Watch for a RED FLAG on the gates.
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.
Approval to purchase a fire truck was voted on and approved at the 2015 Annual Membership Meeting.
2015 MLPOA Work Party and Pot Luck social:
The 2015 work party and social will be held Today at the Caretaker’s Cabin beginning at 9:00am
After the work projects are completed, we will have a pot luck lunch beginning at 1:00pm. MLPOA will furnish meat and drinks but would like everyone to bring side dishes and or desserts to share with the group. Also, please bring a chair.
Following lunch, we will be holding a raffle and giving away some great prizes. We will also have the annual garage sale, so please bring items you wish to donate. All proceeds will be used to cover expenses for the food. Remember, if it doesn’t sell then you have to take it home.
We would like to point out that the primary purpose of the work party is so all Manor Lands members can get to know each other and meet your neighbors. Please join us even if you are unable to do physical work.
Identified projects for this year: Cut and split wood for caretaker cabin, fix fence at green gate, replace road signs that have rotted out, caretaker cabin improvements.
If you have any questions, please contact Scot Merrihew at (801) 390-3176 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.”
On Saturday June 13th an ATV hit a large rock at the entrance to a driveway causing a fatality.
Law enforcement investigation indicates speed may have been a factor.
More info will be provided as it becomes available.
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.
Bridger Valley Electric has contacted me and stated that there will be a scheduled power outage today between 10:00 Am and noon for maintenance to some power poles.
