Thanks to those of you that could Zoom in for our January Board Meeting on 1/13/24. Attendance continues to grow using the Zoom format. Please join us in the future if you can. For those unable to join us, here are a few important updates you should be aware of:
Preparations continue for trial re: our case #CVCV506844. With much work to be completed, SVILA filed a motion to extend the Expert Disclosure deadline. Accordingly, the defendant filed and was granted a motion to Continue to Trial. The established trial is to commence no later than October, 2024. You can find updated public information documents in the Member Resources portion of our website.
Fast Boat Area/West End Wake Zone Discussion - 2024 Plan
As a result of numerous inquiries, the following statement was read and discussed at the January meeting:
- The Board has recently received multiple inquiries from members of the association regarding the location of the no wake buoys on the west end of the lake. Because of these inquiries, the Board wanted to communicate to the members its current stance on this topic.
- The Board is not currently considering moving the buoys and has no plans to consider moving these buoys as proposed by the Safe Boating and Roads Committee for the 2024 lake season.
- Should the Board consider this matter in the future, there would be ample opportunity for the members to express their views on the matter prior to any decision being made.
Sheriff's Sale - Lot 786
The property owner of this lot didn't pay their annual dues for 2022-23 or 2023-24, and SVILA foreclosed on his lot. It will be sold to the highest, qualified bidder on Thursday, 2/15/24 @ 10:30 AM at the Ringgold County Sheriff's Office located on the west end of Mt Ayr, on the south side of Highway 2. Any additional information we obtain will be posted on the Sun Valley website, or you can contact Bill Wells at vicepresident@
Upcoming Election - Board of Directors
In spite of the recent blizzard weather, Spring and April will arrive. April at SVILA always means Board Election time. Our Annual Meeting date and election day is Sunday, April 14th, 2024, at 2:00pm. This year only 1 Director seat is up for election. Bill Wells completes his first term on 3/31/24. Bill has announced his intention to run for a second term. As provided for in our By-Laws, nominations are now open. Nominations will close on 2/29/2024. Please contact SVILA staff if you are interested in running for this Director seat. The staff will send you nomination papers and instructions.
Finally, after much work by volunteers, staff, contract help, and a break in the weather, our roads are returning to more normal winter driving conditions. With very minor exceptions, all roads have been cleaned/opened to two lane widths, and salt and sand have been applied to help reduce icing and slippery spots. Members should continue to operate with care on our roads, as some locations will remain challenging (usually shaded locations that thaw more slowly). Driveways in some areas will have very deep drifts, so be aware and prepared if/when you come to the lake to visit your property.
Thanks for reading.
As we proceed through winter and spring, we hope to build an even stronger SVILA team to support our membership and the coming lake season!
