Lost and Found

With winter road conditions and many members carrying or hauling items in by foot or snowmobile, items tend to fall out and become lost. If you have lost or found any items please contact any Pine Mtn Board member with the information. (01/25/2017)

Current LOST Items:
Ladies SOREL boots, black with cream tops ~ Sat Jan 21st around noon ~ Street: Piney or Ashley

Changes in Garbage Services from Republic Services

We have been notified by the Landfill Superintendent of the following:

The Three Mile dump at Wanship will have to be relocated which will cost millions of dollars over several years.

Also noted was, Weber Canyon does not have trash carts. We were told that the billing was wrong and should not have said 1 65 gallon cart.

There is major confusion within Summit County as to exactly what these charges are for. We are working with the county and will be going to a Summit County meeting in the near future to clarify these changes and charges. If you were billed for a lot only (without a cabin) you do not have to pay the bill. Just note on the bill (no dwelling at this lot number) and return the bill. (01/04/2017)

NOTICE - 10/24/2016

1. All members who have trailers in the East and West parking lot area need to move them to the burn pile area, along the outer fence area. The burn pile area will be open for moving of these trailers as soon as the burn pile cools down. Approx., 10/28/2016. Call a Board member if you have questions.

2. We cannot accept any additional dead fall material until next spring. We have been able to obtain a burn permit and the piles are gone for the season. Thanks to all that helped clean their lots and now have some defensible space around their cabins. We will be able to accept approved material again next spring.

3. A reminder that if you have not prepared your cabin for winter, now would be a good time. Very cool nights are already with us. .

4. Two weeks ago a member had their car broken into, at their cabin, and lost some personal items. Remember to always lock your car or truck while spending time in Pine Mountain and always close the main gates.

5. Lastly, we have now lost two Stop Signs and two Speed Limit signs on our streets. Please watch and report any one removing these important safety signs to a Board member.

Tips For Selling Your Cabin or Changing Mailing Address

For whatever reasons, right now we have are having a high number of cabins and lots being sold in Pine Mountain. We, as the Board, would like to remind all of our members that it is the responsibility of the current home or lot owner to notify a member of the Pine Mountain Board of the sale or pending sale. Before we can update our records and change the responsible party we need the following information for our records.

1. Name: This should be how the purchasing party wants the property listed on our records.

2. We must have a mailing address for future billings. Remember that the United States Postal Service (USPS) does not deliver mail in PM. We will not accept an address such as 5554 Conifer Dr. This must be a Post Office Box or we prefer a street address here in the valley or where ever you live. Make sure you include your zip code.

3. We also need current phone numbers: Prefer home and cell or just the cell if that is all you are now using. If you can please provide at least two phone numbers that we can contact you with.

4. We now are sending out a lot of the notification thru E-Mail. Please provide us your preferred E-Mail address.

If we cannot receive all of this requested information on a sale our records cannot be changed. Please help us keep the records up to date and our cost down.

Annual Meeting Highlights

Thanks to all that attended the annual meeting on Friday evening. Here are the highlights from the meeting:

1 - Bob Hart was re-elected to the Board.
2 - Darin Ross was re-elected to the Board.
3 - Trudy Nielsen was elected to the Board.

Three HOT topics came up for discussion by the members present:

1 - Gates being left open on the East and West ends. Discussion as to how the Board should deal with this issue. Suggestions were to 1 - Video both gates, 2 - Change the fine from $75 to $500 per violation. This would require a change in the By-laws and could appear on next year's report for a vote by the membership, 3 - Close the East gate all together. This one came after the meeting by a member offering suggestions. The Board will be dealing with this issue as a top priority. Close the gates or you will be fined.

2 - Speeding by members and guests. This is another issue that is an ongoing one for the members. We need everyone's help in slowing down - both members and guests before someone gets seriously hurt while trying to enjoy their cabin at Pine Mountain.

3 - Barking Dogs ... Once again we are asking all members to control their dogs. They are not to be left outside while you are at work. Members were told to call Summit County Animal control for help on this issue. Advise the Board of the Lot number, and fines will be sent to the offenders.

The other two items that required a vote both passed. Annual Assessment will stay the same and a new rule to the By-laws to NOT ALLOW CANAPY TYPE STRUCTURES in Pine Mountains. One more item, Summit County is changing the address for all of us in the Canyon. Watch for this change. Please call a Board Member if you have any question on the meeting.
