Week of September 12, 2016

Utilities, Inc. (water company) will be making repairs on the water lines within the Association one day during the week of September 12th.

The water will be SHUT OFF FOR ONE DAY to the whole Association. Following the repairs, a boil order will be in effect.

A reminder of the Illinois watercraft towing rule added Jan. 1, 2015:
"E. The operator of any watercraft that is towing a person or persons shall display on the watercraft a bright or brilliant orange flag measuring not less than 12 inches per side. The flag shall be displayed at the highest point of the area surrounding the boat's helm as to be visible from all directions, continuously, while the person or persons being towed depart the boat in preparation for towing and until reentry into the boat when the activity has ceased. Display of the flag for purposes other than the activity described in this Section is prohibited."

This rule will be STRICTLY enforced. Also note that the following rule still applies:
(e) A flag to indicate a downed person is required equipment for towing. It must be bright orange and a minimum of 12” square. The flag is to be displayed by the spotter when a person is downed and must be visible for 360˚. Class II.
