Building Permits Committee
We have a Committee looking into the possibility of revising our building permit process to include language that would revise our surety bond (deposit). It has been suggested that many other lake communities have graduated deposits based on the project involved, wear and tear on the roads from traffic and trucks, and with the time and involvement of the personnel in the office, perhaps a portion of the deposit should be non-refundable. This would be a way in which to compensate the Association for the office time and effort involved as well as help with the expense of fixing roads damaged by such construction traffic. There would be no cost to most lake members as this change would affect only those doing construction projects.
