Hi neighbors! As we move from fall to winter please remember we still have a few trees in the community losing their leaves. So, please keep your curb gutters free of leaves and other debris. This ensures our beautiful lakes stay clean and that fresh rain water flows to them keeping them healthy and deep.
Liberty Lakes Homeowners Association Minutes

Tyler Run Shelter House
Present: Susan Hayes, Jeff Smith, Bill Carman, Lyna Smith, Greg Cliffel, Ken McAleb
Absent: Amanda Compton, Sam Kocher, Tim Tanis, Brenden Gallagher
Topics of Discussion
Budget and Assessments: Treasurer’s Report presented along with discussion on budget surpluses. Direction to send all billings to the P.O. Box so that payments can be made promptly.
Social: There was discussion of some form of welcome packet that could be put together for new homeowners and provided to the title companies. While there was general thought that it was a good idea, not clear anyone has the current time to do so. Additional thought will be put into this matter. We can revisit it as we get notices of home sales. Limited discussion of Halloween party—food. Will take back up at next meeting to see if there is an interest in putting it together.
Landscape: Ken McAleb is still waiting on bids for work on the pillars. There was a vote to fertilize all trees on Salisbury within our community which was unanimously approved. Discussion of the paths and weeds. Will see about getting them treated so as to kill the weeds. A product called Restore4 was brought up as a solution to the staining problem on the fence line along Liberty.
Lakes: No problems at this time.
Website: Need to get notices up for yard waste and debris not to go into the drainage to the lake and to bring in trash cans after trash day.
Next meeting: The next meeting will be Oct/03/2017 at 6:30 p.m. at Tyler Run Shelter House or TBD if inclement weather.
Present: Susan Hayes, Jeff Smith, Sam Kocher, Amanda Compton, Bill Carman, Brenden Gallagher, Lyna Smith

Reminders: Our lakes are catch & release only. Also when mowing the tree lawn to please direct mower inward toward the yard and not into the street. This will help the lakes.
