Heritage Lake HIGHLIGHTS EMAIL > [email protected] JULY 2019 Page 3 HLPOA INFORMATION Office phone: 765-386-7447 Office Hours Monday thru Thursday: 8:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Friday: 8:00 a.m. to Noon MANAGERS REPORT For nearly the past year, there has been many hours of discussion and work completed to roll out the potential construction of a new marina that would include a sit-down restaurant. This is a very exciting project to offer this growing community, that could be enjoyed by all, for many, many years to come. The base structure and flooring of the current marina is in extreme poor condition with decaying wood around the parameter. The appearance of the marina may look acceptable to many, but behind this fresh painted blue building with new white trim boards that were added as cosmetic cover-up, there is a building in very poor condition. The beginning stages for public viewing for this construction has begun on June 26th & 29th with opportunities for viewing, and / or questions you may have. Additional dates will be announced real soon. The tentative plan for demolition / construction would begin shortly after Labor Day that will allow for opening of the new marina in the spring of 2020. I know as a Heritage Lake resident; I am very excited about a new marina that will include a restaurant and will be a focal point of our community. Respectfully, Ken Rozelle HLPOA Property Manager NEW MARINA VIRTUAL TOUR COMMUNITY MEETING Saturday, June 29th 2019 Meeting begins at 9:00 am at the Clubhouse - FREE coffee and donuts. Also Another Meeting will be July 17th at 7 PM at the Clubhouse We are very pleased to be able to share with the community the results of the work of the Marina Replacement Committee! Check out the plans, ask questions, and give your feedback. Future sessions are also being scheduled, but these will be the first chance to see what’s coming.

Heritage Lake HIGHLIGHTS EMAIL > [email protected] JULY 2019 Page 7 CLEAR CREEK CONSERVANCY DISTRICT Directors Present: J. Duane Kelly , Chris Schubert , Jerry D. Wood Also attending: Kathy Deer, Administrative and Financial Manager; Doug Clodfelter, Plant Operator and Operations Manag- er; Jim Hazelwood, Harold Paetow, Tom Novak, William Goupell, Mr. & Mrs. Curtis Talbott, and Chris Schafer. Chris Schubert moved to approve the minutes of the May meeting. Jerry Wood seconded. Vote unanimous. Kathy Deer reviewed the financial report for the month ending May 31, 2019. Jerry Wood moved to approve the financial report and Register of Claims, May 17 through June 20, 2019. Chris Schubert seconded. Vote unanimous. Kathy Deer provided a written report. Four copies of the Emergency Action Plan for the Heritage Lake dam have been delivered to the district by Banning Engineering. An electronic copy will be provided the Heritage Lake emergency planning committee. One copy will remain at the plant office, one copy for Tom Helmer, Putnam County Emergency Management Director, and one copy for David Costin, 9Director. The new Payment Services Network, Inc. payment processing went live on June 18. At this time customers can make 11 payments with credit cards but a new feature where customers can call in to make credit card payments will be available soon. There are 1,434 account locations with 4 homes added to the billing system – GB547, GB416, MS276, and LH107. There are three sewer connections recently paid with the connections still pending. The April/May sewer access fee bills were due June 15 with grace period to June 17 since the 15th fell on Saturday. Late fees of $1,553.36 were added to 274 account locations. Two work orders were generated for Inflow/Infiltration inspections due to deed transfers in May – JV016 and MS235. The board received a request to waive a late fee for MS664 due to issues logging into the billing system. Assistance was not requested until after the due date. Chris Schubert moved to deny the waiver. Jerry Wood seconded. Vote unanimous. Doug Clodfelter provided a written report. BL Anderson performed the annual flow meter calibration. A lower bearing renovation kit at $761 and brush assembly for $436.00 has been ordered for the head works fine screen and a contractor will be used to install the parts. Michael has been doing a lot of locates for home builders and the Hendricks Power brush cutters. A video locate for MS071 and MS072 using the crawler camera found tree roots coming in around the lateral connection to the main. Eco Solutions jetted the main, but the crawler camera still could not get past the lateral. The wheels of the camera will be moved so the camera body sits lower in the 8” pipe or it may be possible reach with the push camera from a downstream manhole. Eco Solutions also ran a lateral launcher camera to get an accurate locate at JV087 and found the wye located in the JV088 gravel drive. The homeowner of MS180 requested assistance to locate a blockage which the plumber had expected at about 25’ out. The camera could not see anything under the water but hit blockage at the hookup point, so it is believed the lateral has settled, pulled apart, or collapsed. She is going to have it dug up. This is a common problem due to the thin-wall, green sewer pipe and Schedule 40 pipe is stronger. During connection at MS276, McCullough discovered the neighbor’s lateral was bent and crushed so it was repaired. Erik Baker requested a manhole be raised at GB416 about 12” to be able to finish the yard right. Michael did some research and decided to try HDPE riser rings. These High-Density Polyethylene risers are very light weight, lock together well, and are similar in cost to concrete but much easier to handle. Emergency callouts occurred Saturday night, June 15 for LS P3 with problems on Pump 1. The pump had to be reversed to clear the rags and the station pumped down by hand when the lag pump would not come on. Michael replaced the MTR controller on Monday. On Sunday, June 15, the plant return lift station Pump 2 tripped out. The pump had to be reversed to clear blockage. Doug also reported that two pressure relief valves will be ordered and replaced. In the public forum, Curtis Talbert provided a written statement and addressed the board stating that the conservancy district should not use the lots they own to vote in HLPOA matters. Chris Schafer addressed the board and explained that the lots owned by the district are not excluded in the total votes, the impact of not voting, and some alternatives for the board’s consideration. Upon recommendation of Chris Schubert, no action will be taken by the board until closer to the end date for voting in September 2020. The next regular meeting will be held at 10 a.m. on Thursday, July 18, 2019, at the district’s office. Remember the following catch phrase to keep flushable and disposable materials out of the sewer system. The three “Ps” – Pee, Poop and Paper (toilet paper) – is all that should be flushed down the toilet. Nothing else goes in there. And that if they are selling their house, they need a current Inflow/Infiltration inspection on file with us. Thank you!

Page 8 Heritage Lake HIGHLIGHTS EMAIL > [email protected] JULY 2019 Heritage Heartland Homemakers by Marianne Novak It was Taco Tuesday for our June luncheon meeting. Penny Steur served us tacos, nachos, taco salad, watermelon, and yummy chocolate desserts. Roll call was a wedding anecdote. For International/Citizenship Committee, Donna McGinley read us Queen Latifah’s Words of Wisdom On Being a Good Citizen: “Volunteer, vote, march, build bridges”! A big “thank you” goes out to Penny (a real super-hero) for Planning the Kids Count Craft Lessons. She had help teaching the classes from Bev Spires, Kathy Wass, and Mary Ellen Deegan. Fair books were passed out, and we shared our treasures for the Purse Auction, which is themed “anything yellow that fits into a purse.” We made a donation to the 4-H and Adult Open Class monetary awards. With a nautical theme, Meegan Ebacher installed the officers for the 2019/2020 year: Pam Miller – President; Audrey Birtchman – Vice President; Meegan Ebacher – Secretary; and Donna McGinley – Treasurer. Please support our Marina Breakfast on July 13, 2019, from 8 – the food runs out! For $5, you get egg casserole or scrambled eggs; potatoes; biscuits & gravy; breakfast bread or muffin; and coffee, juice, or water. Since July is County Fair Month, we are skipping our regular monthly meeting, but hope to see everyone at Family Fun Day at the Fairgrounds on July 24. For more information, call Pam Miller at 765/386-6226. Heritage Lake Book Club by Julia Prather For the month of June, the book selection was a memoir - Running on Red Dog Road by Drema Hall Berkheimer. Book Club Members were treated to a trip down a red dog road into 1940-50’s West Virginia that brought back memories of grandparents and an upbringing reminiscent of snippets of their own childhood. Our members rated the book 3.4 and shared memories of influential people from their own childhood. The book also made us aware of the importance of sharing our memories in order to create a legacy for our own children and grandchildren. July 10 The Flying Circus by Susan Crandell August 14 Winter in Paradise by Elin Hilderbrand September 11 The Spy and the Traitor by Ben Macintyre If you’d like to come join us, call Marianne Novak at 386-2077. Heritage Lake Garden Club by Marianne Novak In June nine garden enthusiasts visited HL resident gardens. A big “thank you” to the following for inviting us into your gardens: Andy & Donna Patterson, Kathy Reedy, Anita Johnson, and Peggy Scotten. After the garden walk, everyone drove over to Donna Wilson’s home for a pitch-in luncheon. Have you seen our Wildflower Garden at Lincoln Hills Park? Last month, Kurt Steur rototilled a plot, and Peggy & Dan Scotten planted the seeds. With all of our rain, we hope that the pollinators will find the nectar pretty soon! The next meeting will be on July 11, 2019, at 9:30 A.M. and at 7 P.M. at the Clubhouse. For more infor- mation, contact Linda Lawler at heritagelake- [email protected].

Informative and fun Workshop On August 21st, Hunter Estate & Elder Law will be at Heritage Lake to give an informative and fun workshop called “Get Your Ducks in a Row!” There are common questions in estate planning and elder law – like, what is the difference between a Will and a Trust?

Mist large patches of weeds, or adjust the nozzle and use a stream for individual invaders. May require more applications than the stuff from Monsanto. WIPER FLUID: 1 gallon distilled water; 1 cup 99% rubbing alcohol; 1 tablespoon castile soap If an overnight freeze is possible where you live, leave a small amount out overnight to test if it freezes.

Heritage Lake HIGHLIGHTS EMAIL > [email protected] JULY 2019 Page 13 FOOD FOR THOUGHT: THE QUESTIONS PROJECT It’s pretty much official, we live in a post-Christian culture. It is not that we have outgrown the concept of God, we’ve just strayed away from Him. The result has been a profound loss in under- standing the actual teaching of the faith. Even if an individual has no desire to be in the faith, it is a loss of heritage, because like it or not, Judeo-Christianity has been infused in western culture since 200 BC. That’s a lot of heritage! The truth is, for all the information out there, it is rather difficult to get an honest and balanced answer based on Biblical teaching. I’m by no means a scholar, but I am an ordained pastor who cares about this community in which I live. I also have a strong passion for honesty and balance in approaching Scripture. So here’s the deal. I’m hoping for questions from the community. Maybe it’s respectfully address- ing a spiritually hostile meme or comment, maybe it just something you’ve wondered about, or perhaps it’s a conflict you sense within Scripture itself. There are lots of honest questions out there. I would love to hear them and do my best to address them. Even if we can’t settle every issue, perhaps we can wrestle with them together. I’d love to learn from you, just as much as I’d like to offer a thought that might help in your ponderings. Here’s to looking forward to the community’s spiritual questions. Just forward them to [email protected]. I’ll do my best to offer an honest, clear, and Biblically balanced response.
