The Lake in Winter

By David Ernes – Lake Management Committee

A frozen lake is just one more sign that winter has come to Roaming Shores. It presents a frozen snapshot of the beauty of the lake that has an almost alien quality to it. A lake’s “winter” season is not usually associated with December 21st to March 21st, but is often based on the dates that the lake becomes fully ice covered. Once the surface of the lake is frozen, the entire ecosystem under the ice changes to cope with the colder temperatures.

The microscopic animals (zooplankton) and photosynthetic organisms (phytoplankton) produce thick-walled resistant cells, which allows them to survive until spring. Some species of cyanobacteria (blue-green algae) can survive at the cold temperatures by become cannibals and consuming other algae species for food they will not get from the sun. It is unlikely that they will form blooms since the conditions are not ideal, although it is not impossible.

If the algae do not completely become dormant, they may actually produce oxygen, which would be beneficial to the fish, who also share this space under the ice. If not, fish normally seek the warmer waters under the ice and can survive as long as the oxygen levels in the water are adequate. They likely migrate to the sections in the lake that are the deepest, to have the best chances for survival. Since they are not warm blooded, their metabolism slows and their activity level decreases, requiring less energy to survive. This continues until the ice melts and the water starts to warm up again.

Aquatic plants can actually handle the winter better than their terrestrial cousins if they are protected under the water. The main body of the plant dies, but the roots can survive. Some will form nodules, which can store energy while they wait for the sun to reappear. However, if they are exposed to the cold air, they may dry out and even the roots can then freeze. Lakes who perform a winter drawdown use this behavior as a method to reduce nuisance plants.

The most important aspect of the lake in winter is ice thickness. Remember, it may look solid, but with 450 acres of surface area, conditions may differ from one location to another. Some residents may use “ice cutters”, resulting in open water even if the rest of the lake is frozen. If you do venture out on the ice, use extreme caution and don’t do it alone.

Winter Dinner Nights are held the 2nd Friday of the month from January to April (with the exception of February which will be the 1st Friday due to Valentine’s Day). They are a great way to kick the winter blues, skip the cooking, and get together with your Friends and Neighbors during the winter season.

Next Friday’s dinner will be held at 6pm at the Pasta Oven in Rock Creek. Please RSVP to Marge Morris at 563-3769 or E-Mail – so she can reserve enough tables for the event.

2020 Dues and Assessments Information

It’s almost Dues and Assessments time, once again. While not a very popular thing to receive in the mail, Dues and Assessments are a necessity to keep Association owned properties and facilities up and running for all approved members to use and enjoy!

Dues and Assessments will be mailed out after the first of the year and need to be paid in full by May 1, 2020. You may pay your Dues and Assessments in installments, however, a late charge of 10% will be charged to the remaining balance after May 1st. If you are planning on selling your home/lot(s), your title agency should prorate the Dues and Assessments you have paid to the day of closing. Avoid an unnecessary late charge!

There are several different payment options available.

Bank Bill Pay:
Many banks offer their customer’s bill pay on their banking website. You can set the RomeRock Association as a payee. If you use this option to pay your Dues, please make sure that your lot number(s) are listed on the check (you can set your account number to your lot number(s)).

Please note that the RRA is a separate entity from Roaming Shores Utilities. If you pay your Water/Sewer bill using your bank’s bill pay feature, ensure your payee for your Dues and Assessments is the RomeRock Association with P.O. Box 8, Rome, OH 44085 as the mailing address!

You can send your payment via US Mail to P.O. Box 8, Rome, OH 44085. Checks and credit cards/debit cards are accepted. (If paying by credit/debit card please use form on the back of the return portion of your statement, there is a 5% fee).

In Person:
Checks, credit cards/debit cards and cash are accepted at our office location (1875 US Highway 6). There is a 5% convenience fee for credit/debit cards. Our office hours until mid-April are Tuesday – Saturday, 8am – 6pm. You may also use our dropbox located on the front porch. The box is under video surveillance and emptied daily.

The RomeRock Association offers owners the ability to pay dues online through our payment processing partner, PayLease. Using PayLease will allow you to pay online with a credit/debit card or electronic check**. You can make a one-time or recurring payment.

If you have questions regarding your account balance, please contact The RomeRock Association at 440-563-3170. For questions regarding PayLease or your online payments, please contact PayLease Support at 1-866-729-5327.

Early Bird Drawing

The RRA will again be holding an Early Bird Drawing for those who pay their Dues & Assessments in full early.

Each account paid in full before 5pm each Thursday between January 16th and March 19th will be eligible for weekly drawings for cash prizes. These prizes start at $500 per week until the award for March 19th becomes $50. Good luck!

Pay your total RRA balance, AT ONE TIME, as soon as possible. Winner chosen will be returned to the box for the later drawings. The sooner your Dues & Assessments are paid in full, the more drawings you will be eligible for!

Notes: If your lot(s) are owned jointly, each joint owner must be paid in full to be eligible (in turn, each joint owner is eligible to win). If you own multiple lots, all of your lots must be paid if full to be eligible (in turn, each lot you own is eligible to win). If you pay by PayLease, when we are notified that your full payment has been processed, we will then enter you into the contest. We are not notified instantaneously.

Property Owners Information Update:

Please make sure to return the “Property Owner Information Update” form that is included in your Dues and Assessments mailing. We are requesting that these forms be returned by March 1st. If you don’t plan on paying your Dues and Assessments early, no problem! Just make sure to either drop off this form at the office, in the mail, NEW online, or in person. Thank you!

RRA Year End Treasurer’s Report

Both the staff and the directors of your property owner’s association take seriously the daunting task of maximizing what you pay in dues and assessments and practicing good financial stewardship. It would be awesome if we had an unlimited amount of resources to do everything each of you want done. Unfortunately, that is not the case. We have a very diverse community and the management of your funds is a continued focus of all involved.

I am pleased to announce we are in a positive financial state and should end this calendar year beating the budget we set a year ago. This was not by accident. The Financial Advisory Committee has worked diligently on delinquent accounts. This has all been done without paying a third party. We have enjoyed some success and look forward to additional success as our process matures. More of your neighbors have paid their 2019 dues than in prior years. I want to thank Nadine Pope and Patricia Wilson who spent a large amount of time on this project.

We have finalized the 2020 budget. There was much discussion and much consideration given on how best to approach next year. It is not our desire to raise our fees each year. Last year was the first increase since 2012. We were able to plan our initiatives and delay some projects until 2021. Some of you will be pleased with the decision to not raise fees in 2020 and some of you will not agree with this decision. There is no easy answer and we make our decisions in the best interest of the entire community. We do it for the right reasons and not to gain popularity. Please know that while we have not raised dues for 2020, in all likelihood, this will not be the case for 2021 and you may begin to plan for that now.

We also are focusing on fund accounting and calculating what each service and amenity costs including personnel expense. As a result of this exercise we determined that the snack bar located at pool one is losing money. This doesn’t make sense for anybody and we are evaluating how to address this going forward. Decisions will be communicated as soon as a resolution has been determined. Pool hours will also be shortened and both pools will close at 8:00 p.m. instead of 10:00 p.m.

Our financial focus is in sync with the needs of the community. Our roads, our lake, our pools, the upkeep of our properties and ensuring we are appropriately taking care of our employees is top of mind. The 2020 budget has included these priorities. Please remember we do have the challenges of equipment replacement, employee succession planning and unforeseen expenses and/or maintenance. If you change the word employee to family member each of you deal with these things in your own household.

Thank you for your confidence in your association. Please involve yourself with the decision making of your community by attending our Association meetings. Our neighborhoods, the people who live in them and our entire lake community is something to be proud of and it is an investment we should never regret.

Lake Management Survey Results

By David Ernes – Lake Management Committee

A few weeks ago, the Lake Management Committee (LMC) asked the residents of Roaming Shores to participate in an on-line survey. The purpose of this survey was to get everyone’s opinion on issues that may be of concern regarding the health of our lake. To date, we have received 279 replies. First off, we would like to thank everyone who provide their input to this survey.

Of the respondents, only 20% were from residents who do not live directly on the lake. In spite of this, over 70% of those living off the lake still use it for some type of activity. So the importance of the lake is not just a lakefront issue.

Of greatest concern to the respondents was the presence of algae and toxins in the lake. The degree of concern varies based on location and length of stay in the community. Overall, the responses are not dissimilar with those appearing on the news across the country. A recent article in the Plain Dealer discusses the link between farming and manure with the increased appearance of blooms. In response to this, Governor Mike DeWine is implementing a multi-million dollar program – H2Ohio – to address this situation in the western Lake Erie basin.

We are currently evaluating the results of the survey, along with the comments more than half of you supplied. This will take some time. Once completed, the LMC, in coordination with the Board, and external inputs, will be developing a Lake Management Plan. We will keep everyone updated as to the progress towards this end. And, we will need your help as we move forwards.

If you wish to see the results from the Lake Management Survey, a copy will be available on the RRA website. Again thanks to everyone who participated.


MetroParks Invasive Aquatic Plant Survey

By David Ernes – Lake Management Committee

The Cleveland MetroParks Aquatic Invasive Species Program involves an assessment of around 200 bodies of water in Ohio’s Lake Erie basin. Our lake was selected as one of those locations. We have received the final report titled “2019 Aquatic Invasive Plant Survey at Lake Roaming Rock”. The intent of this report was to review the results of a survey completed on June 17, 2019 that involved identifying the plant species detected at 15 sampling locations throughout our lake. To get a perspective on this, in 2010, EnviroScience did an aquatic vegetation study which involved 190 locations. The MetroParks study focused primarily on the marina and Plum Creek Cove to the north and several locations south of Fisherman’s Cove. The purpose was to identify the spread of invasive aquatic plants throughout the Lake Erie basin.

On an average, 4.5 different plant species were detected at each location on our lake, the most found at the marina. Those plants present with the highest frequency were Eurasian water-milfoil [EWM] and coontail, both present at 93% of the locations. These same species were detected in the 2010 study, but the EWM was present at only a low percentage (<5%). Eighteen different species of aquatic plants were detected overall, showing greater diversity than seen in 2010 (ten species). Of those detected in the current study, three are considered invasive (including EWM). Hydrilla, the most difficult invasive species to remove from a lake, was not detected. Very good news!

The report does include several aquatic vegetation management options. They include the use of grass carp, continuation of the use of the weed harvester, and chemical control. It was clearly stated that the MetroParks program is not intended to advise as to a recommended course of action.

The last part of the report discussed prevention of further invasive species becoming an issue at our lake. They mentioned the Ohio Clean Marina Program with a Clean Boater Pledge. These programs are intended to reduce the chance for “hitchhikers” from entering our lake from other locations. They also mention that some local aquatic plant nurseries have been found to be contaminated with invasive species that are then used in decorative water gardens or rain gardens. So, due diligence is highly recommended should you use your boat at other bodies of water or plan on intentionally planting aquatic plants around your property. More will be coming with regard to this important issue.

While not a comprehensive study, the report gives us some valuable information. If you wish to read the full report, it can be found here.

[If you have any questions on this study or other issues for the Lake Management Committee, we now have a dedicated email address. Send your questions to We will get back with you with an answer.]
