Fireworks are on!!!!                        

 **Clear Zone for Fireworks**

Boats can be no closer than 500 feet from the island in all directions. For the area to the east of the island this means that an arc starting at the new 2 story house on Lakeview extending to the tip of the middle island and ending at the remodeled Gray house on Valentine Lane. For the west it means no boats closer to the west end of the west island on an arch starting at the house at the entrance to Figy's point to the tip of the Iott property the trailer on the west end of Dale Iott's property. This is basically a 500 foot circle around the island. Once the warning shot goes off, no boats can leave shore from the following areas:

1)Hazel Drive from Pat Aplings to Asburys

2)  Lakeview from Mohlers to the new 2 story house.

3) Valentine lane from the newly remodeled  gray cottage to the west end of Valentine.

Please observe this for the safety of everyone on the lake.

We do not know how much smoke will be sitting near the water after the show. PLEASE BE VERY CAREFUL WHEN NAVIGATING BOATS BACK TO YOU HOMES AFTER THE SHOW!!!

             Fireworks are on!!!!

Run Posey--there will be a pre race pickup/Sign up  at 183 Hazel Drive on Friday evening from 5:30 -7:30 pm..


The Board is politely asking everyone to stay off the west island from June 26th until July 11th. We have been working hard to get the island prepared for the fireworks show and the company we contract with will be placing the shooting racks on the island early. Please let all of your family members know about our request.

Goose Round up--The state of Michigan has suspended all goose rounds up in the entire state to the avian bird flu crisis. This is not to say we have bird flu at this lake but the state is being proactive to stop any potential outbreak from starting.

Get your Fireworks donation sent as soon as possible. We need pay for the fireworks in 3 weeks. Also we will be doing a test run on shooting the fireworks off from the island on May 30th at dusk. Boat traffic around the west island will be temporarily stopped for 10 minutes or so to simulate what will happen on the 4th. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

NEW Zoning Ordinance is now in effect

The almost 30 month process for a review of zoning and building codes for properties on and around the lake has been completed and voted in by the township supervisors and is now  the legal document for the township. The Township supervisor are going to enforce the new codes and have strongly suggested that any remodeling or rebuild work have proper permits and that if you have any questions regarding what you plan to do that your talk with them in advance of your starting to do work. 

A sad commentary

Please read the below letter from a lake homeowner on dumping in the lake:

On Monday June 30, 2014 we watched from the northeast shore of Posey Lake as a pontoon boat from Shady Lane stopped approx 200 yards from the north and east shorelines.The pontoon had hanging from its front end two bundles of cut weeds each approx 3 feet in diameter. We watched in disbelief as the bundles contents were dumped into the water.The pontoon then returned to a dock on Shady Lane.This scene was witnessed by several neighbors. We discussed why a Posey Lake neighbor would do such a thing. Were they thinking the cut weeds would provide shelter for fish? Or were they thinking the weeds would sink to the bottom never to be seen again?

Regardless of their thinking, approx 4 hours later I removed from my shore two wheel barrows full of freshly cut lake weeds. If my neighbor was just trying to save themselves some labor, they were successful in that the labor was transferred to a 72 year old neighbor with a bad back, bad knee, and chronic tendinitis in the right shoulder.

Mike, due to health and attending three recent funerals I was delayed in getting this info to you sooner so the topic could be put on the meeting agenda so that neighbors could all be informed that cut lake weeds eventually drift to shore as decided by the prevailing winds and water movement. They do not sink harmlessly to the bottom. Perhaps you could post this info on the Posey Lake website to increase the knowledge of all our Posey Lake community. 
Thank you.

 We would like to remind cottage owners that they are responsible for the actions of family members and all guests while on Posey Lake. Responsible behavior is courtesy to your neighbors and others while boating and jet skiing. We would also remind everyone that they should review all the applicable boating laws for inland lakes and streams on a yearly basis to make sure they know the current laws and regulation. The overall riding issue here is water safety and courtesy to all on the lake. Please help us keep Posey Lake a safe lake
