SPBHA Dues Increase Results

Bluffs Homeowners – Thank you for voting
the proposal to change the annual dues has passed!

After the meeting on Tuesday July 16 we had 42 yes votes and 3 no votes. We continued to accept votes after Tuesday and now have 51 yes votes, a full 2/3 of our HOA members. The board planned to accept ballots through the end of July, as voting was not “closed” as of our Tuesday evening meeting date.

The new dues amount of $125 is effective with next year’s dues payment March 2020. Homeowners who want to take advantage of a dues price of $105 and prepay up to 3 years of dues can make out your check to SPBHOA and mail it to our PO Box 612 Hamburg, MI 48139. We plan to mail a letter out by the first week of August to make sure all HOA members are notified about this prepay option.

Thank you for your support

Easter Egg hunt was a Success!

The 2019 Easter egg hunt was a great success despite the bad weather, all the kids (and adults) still had a blast! We had a great turnout and had just enough time to get the hunt underway and finished up before the rain came down. A big thank you Corinne Kass for heading up this event again this year, we all appreciate your dedication to making the community a great place to live!

Strawberry Lake – Aquatic Pesticide Treatment Notice, July 2017

AQUATIC PESTICIDE TREATMENT NOTICE

This notice is to inform you that the Washtenaw County Board of Public Works (Chain of Lakes Lake Improvement Project) has contracted with Aquatic Services, Inc. for aquatic management services. We are planning to treat various area waters with herbicides and/or algaecides for the control of aquatic nuisance plants and/or algae.

Please be aware that only pesticides that have been approved by the Environmental Protection Agency, Michigan Department of Agriculture and the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ) are being used. These pesticides are being applied in dosages approved by the MDEQ and as applied are not harmful to fish, wildlife or pets. A permit from the MDEQ will have been secured prior to any pesticide applications.

Please watch the shoreline for the posting of YELLOW signs, which will indicate the day of treatment, exact pesticides used and any water use restrictions depending on the pesticides used. In the event of an additional pesticide application, a second sign will be posted outlining new water use restrictions.
Pesticides are applied as either liquid or granular formulations. Liquids are surface sprayed or sub-surface injected depending on treatment strategies and/or weather conditions. Granular formulations are applied with broadcast spreaders.

♦ = Anticipated pesticide use for 2017.

POSTINGS

Notice of all pesticide applications shall be posted prior to each application. Notices shall be posted along the shoreline with 8 1/2 x 11 inch YELLOW posters. They shall indicate the day of treatment, permit number, contact information, exact pesticides used and the water use restrictions (swimming, irrigation and fishing) depending on the pesticides used. In the event of additional pesticide applications, additional notices shall be posted outlining new water use restrictions.
Some postings may be done in advance. How many days in advance will vary between lakes. There is an ADVANCED POSTING box on the poster that will be checked in the event of an advanced posting. If the box is not checked, the application will be made on the same day as the posting. Posters will be attached to trees, posts, decks, docks and other vertical objects along the immediate shoreline. However, riparian property owners who choose not to have the posters affixed to their personal property may have alternative postings. Within 30 feet of the immediate shoreline, you may supply your own bright YELLOW painted supporting device (stake) at least 30 inches tall and the posters will be stapled to that device. Go to www.aquaticservicesinc.info the SCHEDULES page to find out when the pesticide applications are to be made.
Note: The 2018 application season will be done using Aquatic Services only. Since this year was a transition year, various options had to be explored including harvesting and the use of existing service providers using previously established contracts.
