Manager Search


State law, requires HOA's to have a licensed community association manager, after reviewing over 30 applications, we had one individual that we hoped to interview however he took another job prior to that happening. Unfortunately, only three of the applicants were licensed CAMs of which the other two were from out of state and did not respond to requests for phone interviews.

In the interim, state law allows HOA's to appoint a volunteer board member to fill the community association manager role. Effective January 1, 2018, Jim McConnell has agreed to fill this roll for the Road and Recreation Association and Doug Ritter will fill this roll for the Water and Sewer Association, this will allow the Boards time to continue the search. Westwind will continue with our accounting processes and provide consulting on an as needed basis. In the interim, our office staff will assist in the effort and continue their great service; Stella will be picking up additional responsibilities. The Joint Boards have authorized the advertisement for a field supervisor this week, Wayne will be filling the lead field roll until the supervisor position is filled. Randy has added part-time staff to assist with snow plowing for the winter season. This process has added additional responsibility for the Boards, and we want to assure you that

we are diligently working to find the right person to fill each position.



Committee Changes


Cindy Goodell and Lynette Struggles have resigned from the Recreation and Hiking Committee after years of service. This committee has done so much to create a sense of Community in

Crystal Lakes and we owe them a great debt of gratitude. The new members appointed to the Committee are Janet Bilo and Becky Hults, thank you for volunteering!, Cheryl Poage.


2017 Crystal Lakes Annual Christmas Party and Gift Exchange


Once again, the CL Christmas Party was a wonderful event held Saturday, December 9.  The dinner was attended by 85+ community members.  Christmas music was provided by our very own "Winnie".  She played beautiful Christmas carols on the keyboard.  We had an extra special treat from Jillian Gabriel, who accompanied Winnie by playing her flute.  We have so much talent on our little mountain!  Three turkeys and two hams were provided by the Recreation Committee Cooks.  Attendees brought a dish to share.  It was a delicious Christmas meal!  Andrew Burt emceed the annual gift exchange.  A lot of laughs are shared during the "exchange" of gifts! 

Our next Recreation Committee sponsored event will be the Chili Cook-Off in February.  Information will be coming out soon.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from all of us at the Recreation Committee!
