Owner Meetings News and Notes

---- 2019 Fall Member Meeting ----

Meeting Notice - email to tenants
The Linoma Fall Meeting will be held Monday, October 14 at 6:30 p.m. at the Ashland Golf Club located on Highway 6 South of Ashland. We are hopeful that all of you will attend the meeting.
We will be discussing various topics at the meeting including move out date for those campers in the park, shut off date for water and other services, removal of personal property, etc.
We will also be explaining and discussing the back half of the park.  We were hoping to have campers on the Southwest area of the park some time ago, but have been delayed by OPPD in getting service.  We have also been informed by the Corp of Engineers that a portion of the levy will need to be removed and replaced.
We are still hoping to have all campsites available by next April, but that will depend on many factors. 
We will be discussing these and many other topics and hopefully answering your questions on the 14th.
We will be taking non-refundable deposits in the sum of $300.00 plus tax in the sum of $16.50 for a total deposit of $316.50 between October 1 and November 30 for lots 1 - 56. For those that were not able to camp and paid a deposit last year, it will remain good until your lot is available or you decide not to return to the park.
If you have questions or Linoma issues, please bring these to the meeting for discussion.
Please let your fellow campers know about the meeting!

---- 2019 Spring Member Meeting ----

4-15-19 -notes from meeting | Volunteer info here

NOTE: Everything below is still very fluid. Updates will be sent out via the regular channels when they are available.

 - Possibly add a road to the island with the new sandbar

 - OPPD is requiring 200 amp hookups throughout the whole park

 - Email and call regarding your specific lot if you have any questions

 - River side lots near hwy 6 will get attention sooner as they are relatively in tact. Actual lot #'s not given/named.

 - Hoping to get some $ share with other parties on who can pitch in on the new levy/dyke/berm. also waiting to hear from Corp of Engineers

 - No boats in the lake this year: not likely b/c of possible debris. Lake water hasn't been tested but is on the to-do list.

 - Bath house and ceptic tanks haven’t been cleaned/checked

 - Deposit allows you to keep your lot indefinitely

 - Rent won’t go up. As far as they know.

 - Lots could be different, they will do their best to get everyone into a lot if your lot was destroyed or doesn’t exist. Lots could be very different.

 - Hopefully grant $ can be found from volunteer time.

 - There is not insurance available for the type of property that Linoma is.

 - OPPD did automatically turn off the meters so that people are not charged. Be sure to call them.  March 12th was the last meeter reading.

 - Lot rent will be prorated based on when your lot is ready. Owners will to work on an individual basis.

 - There is a new road where it washed out around lot 66-ish, it is repaired but not open yet.

 - If you are beyond lot 56 please refrain from making repairs to your lot until it gets opened up. A notification will be sent via the website, email and social media.

 - Beacon view may provide their dredge for the lake if owners can get it running, otherwise it’s very expensive to bring in a dredging service as it's in high demand.

  • First honey run pump date is on April 18th
  • Bathhouse should be open the first weekend
  • New posts for lot numbers and flags will go in after everyone has moved in
  • All personal property needs to be securely tied down when moving out, Call Kate: (402) 521-1145
  • LOT IMPROVEMENTS - Please Call Kate: (402) 521-1145
  • PAVEMENT from the road to the gate. Will be finished before move in date
    • If need be, there is another gate that can be opened to gain access into the park
  • DUMPSTERS have been moved to the other side of the entry near where the old tractor used to be parked
    • A new tractor was purchased to make road maintenance easier
    • YARD WASTE: Please don't put it in the dumpster. Place your bags of yard waste outside (next) to the dumpster
    • APPLIANCES: Don't leave your appliances at the end of the season. You brought em in, you move em out
  • ZEBRA MUSSELS: Dave and Chuck went to a seminar on lake maintenance. Zebra Mussels are showing up more and more in Nebraska. IF your boat was in another lake before putting it in Linoma, LET YOUR BOAT DRY OUT FOR 5 DAYS. This will kill off the mussels. If Zebra mussels show up at Linoma the beaches will essentially turn into sharp pieces of glass from the shells of the mussels.
  • LIGHTHOUSE: The top and lower railings will be refurbished over the summer
  • INTERNET: once the lighthouse is finished (with power) it could become possible. The hope is that the internet service provider will set it up and bill anyone who wants it on an individual basis. (like OPPD)

  • HWY 6: Construction between the Platte river and Ashland begins 3-27 and is expected to be completed in August of 2018
  • GOLF: Chuck is offering single memberships to the Ashland country club for Linoma Tenants for $1000 (unlimited golfing w/ cart) for a year. Family plan; $1,200
  • GROUND CONCRETE: Owners prefer that you ask first. crushed concrete contains Limestone which can change the PH of the soil and furthermore, the lake. This PH change can cause a lot of problems with the lake.
  • Please be sure to read the 2017 lease

----- 2016 Fall member meeting -----
  • Please read everything on this page. http://www.linomalighthouse.com/2016-TENANTS-MEETING
  • Orange circles between lots represent where sleeved (removable) posts will be put in. The posts will be used for posting honey wagon flags for getting tanks pumped. They will also show lot numbers to help aid in directing emergency responders to the proper lot. They will not impede campers moving in and out. (as long as you move them first.) J
  • Move in date could be Thursday April 13th and not (Good) Friday the 14th. This would mean we move out one day earlier on Tuesday October 10th. Most of us are moved out the weekend before.
  • Spring meeting will be on March 31, 2017

LTA reform:

  • As of next year, the LTA will have zero authority or any problem solving ability. The owners will now handle all issues. Please call Kate with all issues: 402-521-1145
  • The LTA sole purpose will be to organize and run events.
  • LTA stickers ($10) will be needed for MOTORIZED BOATS AND GOLF CARTS. Lot stickers (free) will be needed on BOAT TRAILERS. LTA stickers won’t be needed on kayaks. (would still like lot #’s on kayaks)

other side notes:

  • Wifi is possible for the 2017 season. Hopefully by spring.
  • An estimate is currently being given to see if the upper portion of the lighthouse can be restored. (and lit?)
  • Kids on bikes at night. Either get lights on the bike or keep your kids (adults too) off of them. So many close calls this year. 
  • Trees: Take care of your trees and don’t neglect or damage them. I think we all know the consequences. DON’T TOUCH ANY TREE OR LIMB WITH OUT ASKING KATE FIRST. 402-521-1145.

That’s all I have.
