Annual Reserves Cleanup

2015 Annual Reserve Cleanup was held Saturday, September 26th Sunday, September 27th.  Many thanks once again to Wayne & Pat Deschamps for organizing the event and to all those who assisted them.  Huge thanks to our amazing volunteer force that turned out.  Annual cleanups such as this are compatible with and part of the Summer Villages Fire Smart initiative and serve to make our community safer.



Break and Enter

Always be proactive in protecting your property.  Ensure someone checks on your place if you will be away for extended periods of time. 

During the winter months ask a neighbor to shovel the walks and turn lights on periodically.  This may deter anyone who is watching for an opportunity.

Gull Lake Stabilization Project

The agreement between the four lakefront municipalities has been signed.

Although no pumping was done in 2012/13 the funds will go into a pool that will be used in future years if the cost to pump exceeds $100,000 or equipment needs upgrading.

No more than two years worth of funds will be held for the years we do not pump (less standby power/repair costs).  Any further costs will not be invoiced out unless we pump in that current year.

The Summer Village of Parkland Beach is responsible for 7.5% of the cost to pump, up to $100,000.  That computes to $7500 a year for us.
