Watercraft "Beached" On Twin Lakes Property
Posted on Jul 30th, 2020
On May 20, 2020, the Board of Directors sent a letter to all homeowners of Twin Lakes and the residents on Morninglake Drive. One major topic was in regard to all watercraft “beached” on Twin Lakes property. We asked that the owners of these boats (watercraft) to pick up new “decals” to be placed on boats (watercraft).  This would allow the Board to know the rightful owner of these watercraft. There are 1 – 20 plus watercraft beached on Twin Lakes property.  Only three (3) families responded.  Obviously, this small number of respondents is disappointing and not acceptable.  Therefore, please note the following:
 
1.  After August 13, 2020, NO watercraft will be allowed to be “stored” or beached on Twin Lakes property.
 
2.  The boats (watercraft) are unsightly and harbor snakes and other varmints that hide under the watercraft.
 
3.  The stagnant water that accumulates inside the boats attract mosquitoes.  Some may carry the “West
     Nile Virus”.
 
4.  The watercraft creates problems for our “grass maintenance crew” as they have to hand trim around the
     boats.
 
5.  A large majority of the watercraft is seldom used and it is NOT the responsibility of Twin Lakes
     homeowners to provide storage for property owned by other homeowners.
 
6.  Finally and perhaps the most important reason – persons within and outside the community will use the
     boats without permission.  This creates a liability issue for which the Board has no control.  This is not
     acceptable.
 
After August 13, 2020, all boats that have not been removed from the property will be moved. If not removed within 60 days, storage fees will begin to accumulate at $20.00 per month. Eventually, if not picked up, some of them will be sold. If you need help in getting the watercraft to your home, please advise the Board.
 
Thank you for your help and understanding.

Lake Management News
Twin Lakes Club – Lakes Management Newsletter
 
This letter is to inform Twin Lakes Club Members of the steps being taken to maintain the health of our lakes and fish. Carl Grizzle has actively helped manage the lakes for decades and has brought items of attention to the board. Carl Grizzle may be contacted if further information is needed beyond this newsletter.
 
The 1st item is water quality. The Board has voted to have the lakes fertilized late March or early April. Fertilization will help eliminate slime, weed growth and promote water clarity and fish growth.
 
The 2nd item is fish population. The Board has voted to have Thread Fin Shad added to both lakes, per Carl Grizzle’s recommendation, to enhance the growth rate of the fish population (i.e. Bass, Bream and Crappie). Thread Fin Shad will reproduce and supply food for the current fish population for several years. The
 
3rd item is fish harvesting. Due to the small size of the current fish population, it will take time for the current population to recover properly if certain fish are removed from the lakes. The Board now asks all members to abide by the following fish conservation rules, effective immediately:
1-) Large Mouth Bass 12” or longer – return to the lake
2-) Limit your catch and keep to: 5 Large Mouth Bass (less than 12” per day) 8 Bream (less than 8” per day) 8 Crappie (less than 8” per day)
 
These rules will allow the smaller fish to grow to a much larger size and help maintain healthy lakes. The Board would like to thank all of its members for their participation in helping to maintain these beautiful lakes.
