Board Journal
Scio Trash & Recycling Notice
Posted on May 29th, 2019

Very recently, Scio Township residents living in Loch Alpine received a “Trash & Recycling Service Questionnaire” from the township manager, giving notice of the township’s contract with GFL Environmental USA. The questionnaire asks for information from residents about their current trash and recycling service, as well as other information. This has caused some confusion for residents who know that Loch Alpine has a service agreement with Waste Management.

 

Loch Alpine's contract with Waste Management continues to July 2020; therefore, Loch Alpine will not be changing service to GFL at this time.  The Scio Township manager knows this and agrees that our contract with Waste Management will remain in effect for the contract period.  Further, there is the possibility the LAIA Board will renew with Waste Management next year, because the Scio contract with GFL does not apply to the Loch Alpine residents in Webster Township. We want only one waste and recycling hauler in order to control traffic, noise and curbside containers on our streets.  The Board will continue to explore the best option in the months ahead.

 

We believed we had the township manager’s agreement that the questionnaire would not be sent to Loch Alpine residents because of the confusion it would cause.  Apparently not.  In the meantime, you can either ignore the survey, or send it back that you have a contract with Waste Management until July 2020.  The township and GFL know that they have to stay out of Loch Alpine for trash service -- at least until July 2020.

Lakes Treatment Notice
Posted on May 3rd, 2019
Every year our lakes are treated for algae and milfoil to maintain appropriate water quality.
 
Our treatment season begins in May and may continue through October depending on the treatment program that has been selected.  The pond will be evaluated at the beginning of each treatment to assess growth patterns as well as target weeds, and will be treated accordingly.
 
Included in the notification is a sample of the yellow posting signs installed around the shoreline, which includes a list of potential water treatment products and their corresponding swimming and water-use restrictions. These signs should NOT be removed until all restrictions have expired.
Notification on the treatment can be found on our website here.

New Additions to our Grounds: Little Free Library and 2 New Benches!

Thanks to Matthew Bauersfeld and Boy Scout Troop 442, Loch Alpine has benefited from another successful Eagle Scout Project. 

Be sure to check out the Little Free Library in the Park and the two new cozy benches, each with a splendid view of our Lakes.  The project was funded by the Sam Horowitz Trust and the new benches are inscribed in Sam’s memory.  Those of us who remember Sam know he would have loved this project!

The Library already has had activity, books have been added and books have been taken.  We now have space for a few extra books and encourage the sharing of reading materials but only until the Library is full.  

Thanks again Matthew and Troop 442!

The Loch Alpine Award
LOCH ALPINE IMPROVEMENT ASSOCIATION LOCH ALPINE AWARD
 
The Loch Alpine Award was established by the Loch Alpine Improvement Association to recognize a person or persons who have demonstrated Exemplary efforts, Commitment and Dedication to the Loch Alpine Community.
 
In 2018, there were two members of the community recognized.
 
Stu Snyder has been on the Grounds Committee for many years,helping
to manage the maintenance of our entrances, grounds & parks.
-Stu’s been an active member, who you may have seen giving care to the
boulevard trees, planting a new area at the park, staining picnic tables or at
a garden club meeting. He’s always counted on for good advice and hard
work, always ready to pitch-in.

Randy Torno has been an elected LAIA Director who was selected to join
the Architectural Control Committee. After his term expired , Randy
continued to Chair the ACC for several additional years (until his custom
canoe & furniture making business took over more of his time.) He was a
good committee chair for LA, meeting with residents, Township officers as
needed and attending Board meetings to keep the business on schedule.
 
The Loch Alpine Improvement Association is proud to have honored recipients of the Loch Alpine Award since 2001 (prior to 2013, the award was designated the Sendra Award). 
 
The previous recipients can be found here.
