From the office

Notes from the office:

To all our veterans, thank you for your service!

Just a few updates:

Hot tubs are once again open for use.

The electrical switch over that required the park wide power outage is complete. However, there are still a number of pedestal switch overs that need to be made, which will require localized short power outages.

Reminder, as you are preparing your lots for winter remember that NO BLUE TARPS are allowed. Brown, Forest Green and Brown/Green Camo are all acceptable.

If you have not already done so, please return your opt out form to the office. If you need a copy you can pick one up at the office or from the brown table outside the office. This opt out form allows you to receive notifications  about the budget packets, general meetings, etc by email. This does not apply to your monthly billing.

For the Thanksgiving holiday the office will be closing at 2:00 PM on Wed 11/27/2019 and will re-open at 11:00 AM on Fri 11/29/2019

Please note the Lot Owners meeting and Board of Directors meeting are scheduled for Sat Nov 16, 2019. They were previously scheduled on the calendar on the wrong date. This has been corrected.

 

If you have not already winterized your unit, now would be the time. Temperatures are beginning to drop into the freezing range at night and similar daytime temperatures aren't far away. If you aren't familiar with the winterizing process there are several Youtube videos available to help show you how.

Other tips include:

Ensure the main water supply is turned off at the hydrant or the in ground supply line.

Empty out the fridge and freezer. Food can spoil if the power goes out for an extended time.

This is a good time to replace the annode in the hot water tank if your unit has one.

If you are staying during the winter, ensure water lines are buried at least one foot below ground (below the frost line). Apply heat tape to any exposed water lines including the water hydrant and ensure it is plugged in and working. Heat tape are typically good for 3-5 years if you unplug them for the summer. If you notice a high electric bill this would be one of the first things to check. Heat tape that has gone bad can cause excess electric usage.

Where is Lake Tyee?

Lake Tyee is located approximately 2 hours north of Seattle and approximately 1 1/2 hours south of Vancouver BC.

Directions:

From Washington I-5, take the Burlington exit and go east on State Highway 20 for approximately 21 miles. Turn left onto Baker Lake Highway and travel north for approximately 7 miles. Turn right onto Burpee Hill Road (you will see a large "Lake Tyee" sign at this intersection). The Lake Tyee community is on both sides of the road after the turn. The sales office is located on the left side of the road just before you get to the main entrance.
