POSEY LAKE MICHIGAN

Hudson Township Zoning Planning Meeting

Tuesday January 6, 2015

Hudson Township Hall on M-34

This zoning meeting will have a discussion regarding Bathhouses on the lake. The zoning commission has requested that the lake attend to give your opinions. If you can't attend send your suggestions to president@poseylake.org.


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 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.

Also, I want to thank the 2014 Sponsors.  Running with E’s really promotes RunPosey for us.  John’s pre-race warm-up really was super cool, wasn’t it?  Our Posey neighbors really help out, including Doyce Rupp (supplying all the beverages), Judy Potter (with great Black and White Transportation stuff for the bags and BEER for the “of age” winners), and the Walworths (with Pest Patrol certificates). 

 

Chris’s Mobile Detailing provided top winners with certificates and I think the C. R. Motors of Hudson donation of Detroit Tiger tickets is pretty amazing.  I hope you visit all the sponsors and tell them we appreciate it. 

 

If you have any questions about Juvenile Diabetes visit jdrf.org.  They appreciate our help!

 

Have a great summer!

The board 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 everone 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
