Message From Bryce Jones–Manor Lands Fire Safety

My name is Bryce Jones. I am the new fire safety board member for Manor Lands.

Thank you for being careful with your fires over Memorial Day weekend. There were no incidents. Just a reminder that with a mild winter, these next four months will be fire hazardous. EVERYONE has to be vigilant about fire control. No stove coals dumped outside until they have cooled at least 72 hours. Put all cigarette butts in approved firepits. When you leave, ensure your fire is completely out.

During work day, we will sound the fire alarm so that everyone knows what it sounds like. Please report back to me if you cannot hear the alarm from your lot.

We have 4 fire trucks that are all prepped to use. We need to train volunteers to use them. This training will probably occur on 14 July. More to follow.

Update on Summit County Chippers

The June 5th chipping date is full. If we don’t get to your slash on the 5th it will be chipped on the next available dates.

They are June 20th, June 27th and July 10th.

We have or can get more dates until August 1.

Thanks for cleaning up Manor Lands.

Harry and Sandy Biggs

Information from previous blog post:

It is very important to have enough work to schedule the chippers for a full day beginning at 8:00 a.m. and ending by 2:30 – 3:00 p.m.

Slash piles must be stacked near the road or on your lot where they can be easily accessed.

The big end must be placed out and the piles must not be higher than 4-4.5 feet.  Slash will not be chipped if it is just thrown haphazardly in a big pile.

If you wish to schedule the chippers please call Harry and Sandy at:

435-642-6268

If no answer, please leave a message with the following information:

  1. Your Name
  2. Lot number
  3. Number of slash piles you have
  4. Your phone number

You will be called back with a confirmation letting you know what day your slash can be chipped.

Manor Lands Gate Lock Update May 19, 2018

Notice—Manor Lands Gate locks have all been changed to the new locks except the brown gate.  The Green gate is accessible with either the old keys or the new keys and will remain so until the board feels certain that everyone has been notified and has had the opportunity to purchase keys.

We are awaiting another lock in order to change the lock on the brown gate. 

If you have not had the opportunity to buy new keys you will need to stop by the Caretaker cabin to purchase keys.

I have taken down the barricades, PROCEED AT YOUR OWN RISK.

All the roads have been plowed but only one bucket wide.

Just because you can drive to your lot doesn’t mean your driveway is clear enough to get to the cabin. NO parking on the roads!
