A land owner located 1.5 miles East of Roaming Shores on Hayford and Stumpville Road is allowing those who need firewood access to 100 acres of his land that is being select cut-crop released. There are numerous trails that provide easy access to the firewood. Please avoid driving on these trails when wet to avoid creating ruts. Also, please do not litter. The firewood you take out is free and unlimited and easy to handle, only take the wood that is on the ground. Do not cut standing trees.
If you need help loading or cutting firewood, there are men there who can help for a small fee. Arrangements can also be made to have precut wood delivered.
To get a premission slip and directions, call Elvis at 216-233-6600 or John 440-487-2665 or email at email@example.com.
Beginning today, Monday Aug. 6, 2012, the RRA pools will begin closing at 9pm until the end of the season.

First off, a big “thanks” to Bob and Carol Delly for their work on the fireworks display this year. It was spectacular!
The weather even cooperated.
The Board of Directors, in Executive Session, approved (5-2 vote for approval) placing a bid to purchase land for the dredging project. This action was legitimately taken in Executive Session because the business discussed was legal in nature and it was of a sensitive nature, i.e., if the details were made public it may have complicated ongoing discussions with other potential landowners. If the bid is accepted and when the title transfers into RRA’s name, I will disclose the particulars of the purchase to all of you in a public meeting. The second reason for purchasing this land is that we will now meet the “contiguous” land rule for selling mineral rights under Association property.
The title search to determine if our members own the mineral rights under their homes continues. As further information is developed, I will communicate it to all concerned.
We have received from the Army Corp. of Engineers a list of engineering firms who have experience in designing sludge ponds and the associated environmental studies that go with the design of those ponds. We have contacted several and asked them to submit proposals. Along those lines, I have met with village officials to discuss with them any present and/or future zoning rules that may be applicable to our dredging project. At that meeting the officials indicated to me that the present zoning rules would be adequate.

RRA Board of Directors.
