Security Update (February 2021)

The information below was provided by Mary Beth Huffman, ILPOA Security Chair. If you have any questions please send an email to

Bob Emling, our new Roving Patrol guard, has been working every other week with Bobby Stumpf.  You have probably seen him in the Security Car.   He has settled in nicely and has been a great asset to security.  Welcome, Bob!  

Same old, same old:  Dogs, dogs, dogs.  PLEASE keep your dogs on a leash per our documents.  Security CANNOT deal with dogs.  If there is an aggressive dog and you are threatened, call 9-1-1.   We are writing citations – and then fines for those dog owners that are habitual offenders.  Security is here to observe and uphold our rules. Gunshots, domestic issues, fires, medical issues, break-ins, etc – call 9-1-1, our security is not going to respond to hazardous situations.  If you’d like to call security or myself after you have called 9-1-1 to advise them, we’d appreciate that – but it is the members responsibility to call 9-1-1.

The part to close up the exit gate has arrived!  It will be installed as soon as the weather allows.  Thanks to our cameras and some diligent members, we have been sending citations – and soon fines for their next citation – to those who’s guests choose to go the wrong way on a one way street.   You are responsible for your guests.  This is a dangerous practice not only for the drivers, but the rest of our members exiting the subdivision. 

Safety is one of our Board of Directors 2021 Initiatives.  Our team has been working on some preventative measures and you will be seeing some of them around the lake in the near future.  The General Water Safety Class given by the Missouri State Highway Patrols will take place on April 24th at 10:00 at the community center.   Thanks to a member at large, Doug Bare who has really taken hold of this and ran with it!  Please let me know if you are interested in joining our team.  

The flags were installed at locations around the lake.  This was in response to folks claiming they did not see computer messages when the lake was closed.  These flags designate the status of the lake:

                                Green:  Lake as Normal, Hours as per the Rules

                                Yellow:  NO WAKE

                                Red:  LAKE CLOSED
