NEWS FROM THE LAKE

New Ownership for Garner Lake
12-30-2017   


Garner Lake Homeowners Association, Inc. was founded some twenty years ago.  One of its primary goals was to take control of the lake, by and for the benefit of the lake residents.  Events transpired to prevent that from happening.  Until now.

 

Lake Management Association, Terry Edwards President, has sold the lake to us…the residents…effective Friday, December 29, 2017.  Garner Lake is now owned by Garner Lake Management, LLC, which is wholly owned by Garner Lake Homeowners Association, Inc.  We are a non-profit (but not a charity).  The lake will not be managed for profit for the first time in its history.  The Boards of both organizations will be volunteer.  At this time, we plan on having no salaried employees unless it becomes obvious that we need such.  GLA will continue to exist, in addition to GLM.

 

Garner Lake Homeowners Association (GLA) has operated for all these years as a volunteer organization dedicated to preserving the lake and surrounding property values.  Not one single person has profited personally from his or her service to GLA.  That will continue to be true.  While mistakes will be made, our mission is pure and we pledge to continue to make Garner Lake the great place to live that is already is.

 

Now we must find better funding to pay for and maintain the lake.  Lake Management Association is financing our purchase over a ten year period, interest-free.  Your lake fees and boat registration fees for 2018 will be paid to Garner Lake Management.  Details to follow.

 

The Board will be working in the weeks ahead to work out details of exactly how all of this will operate.  Right now, we just don’t have specifics.  We plan to have a public meeting, open to all, in a couple of weeks to answer your questions as best we can.

 

There will be much more information available in the weeks and months to come.  Stay tuned.  We appreciate and solicit your support.

 

Dave Brown,

President of Garner Lake Homeowners Association, Inc.

LAKE RULES... Have you read them?  You must be familiar with and abide by the Rules or you could be banned from the lake.  The Official Rules are on this website on the page Rules of the Lake.

LAKE STAGE       December 22, 2017     +10.5"
FYI...at its peak on March 10, 2016 the lake was +21.0".
The lake stage is based on the overflow at the weir on the west end of the dam.  Zero is the level at which water will begin to flow over the lip of the weir.  -6.0 means the lake must rise 6 inches to reach the lip of the weir.  +6.0 would mean the water will continue to flow into the weir until the lake level drops 6 inches.  (This information will be updated from time to time, but not necessarily daily or weekly.)
