Appeals will be heard by the Grievance Committee comprised of 2 Board Members and 3 Residents within a reasonable amount of time after the written appeal is received by the Board.

KEEPING THE COMMUNITY GREEN:
During the Community Clean Up we collected used motor oil. With lakes, streams and ground water so vulnerable to contamination, we found someplace to recycle all used oil.
Please bring all your used oil to Ray's Auto. They use it for heating and will take anything you have to give. Please be responsible and dispose of used oil properly.

Board of Directors Update, including Bylaws
On July 14th, 2009, William Ramagosa, Jr., incorporated the Sunrise Lake Property Owners Association.
On July 24th, 2009, William Ramagosa, Jr., as the sole board member of the newly formed Sunrise Lake POA, adopted bylaws for the association.
On July 26th, 2009, the community elected its first board of directors.
On July 30th, 2009, the newly elected board of directors held its organizational meeting, elected officers and scheduled several work sessions to review the existing bylaws and explore possible revisions and amendments to those bylaws.
On November 6, 2009, the bylaws became available for downloading from this site.
Bylaws have now been mailed to all owners in good standing. If for some reason you have not received a copy, please contact the office or download a copy here.
To download, simply follow the link on the left side of this page.
Work Sessions - closed informal gatherings of the board where sensitive items, with or without a written agenda, are discussed and explored. These meetings will be called as needed.
Board meetings - open formal meetings where the board will vote on items, organized by an agenda, where the public is invited to comment. Each speaker will identify themselves by full name and address.
The secretary will record all comments, the chair of the meeting will acknowledge the comments, and when the allotted comment time has expired, the board will work its way through the agenda.
If at any time during the meeting there is a need to discuss something the board deems sensitive or confidential, the board will go into executive session, discuss such issues without the public, and then return to the public and complete all voting in public and on the record. The board will post a schedule of these meetings as that schedule is developed.
Semi-Annual Meetings of the Association - these are bi-annual meetings that will be held at either St. Vincent’s church or other large space where anything that requires ratification by the community, such as the budget, will be discussed and voted on. The community will be notified of these well in advance of their occurrence, in compliance with the timelines mandated in the UPCA.
These membership meetings will also follow a written agenda that will be available to all association members either online or in person at the office during posted office hours.
Special Meetings of the association may be called when something unexpected comes up that requires action by the association.
Annual Meeting of the Association - the primary purpose and main order of business at this meeting will be the election of new board members.
Note from the Dog Warden:
