The RomeRock Board of Directors held a reorganizational meeting at the clubhouse on Monday, June 22 with appropriate social distancing. The board thanked Rick Brothers for his service as president for the past 14 months and for leading us to form a united team of directors dedicated to providing the best possible service to our residents in the future. Rick had decided not to continue as president because he felt that the president should be a full time resident who would be more available on a regular basis. We truly appreciate all he has accomplished during his tenure.
Louise Lisac was elected President, Rory Marshall will continue as Vice President, Nadine Pope as Secretary and Scott Soble was elected as Treasurer.
The board voted to cancel the annual meeting that we were hoping to be able to reschedule. We are unsure of state mandates going forward and will publish the annual financial report from 2019 and a President’s report in the weekly eblast in the near future. The board will once again hold a closed meeting for July but are hoping to be able to begin holding open meetings again in August. A recap of the July meeting will be published in the eblast on the Monday following the meeting.
The board again discussed the need for those using boats and jet skis to follow both the Roaming Shores and ODNR rules. Each year when purchasing their boat sticker, residents are given a copy of the rules and regulations and must sign a form stating that they have read and understand them. Residents should be aware that in order to operate a jet ski or boat, if a person was born after January 1, 1982, they are required to have completed an authorized Boater Safety Course and passed the test given at the end of the course. This course is offered online and Roaming Shores is also offering a course that will take place at the Village Office on July 18th from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. The cost for this class is $35.00 and you can register by calling the RRA Office at 440-563-3170.
Accidents happen but most can be prevented with proper training and common sense. Please take the time to get the proper certification. It could save you from being hurt or hurting someone else. The board also stressed the importance of high visibility of our Lake Patrol and ODNR on our lake in the future to be sure these rules are followed.
