Any person owning lands bordering on Little Silver Lake, Rainbow Lake, Little Silver Lake Road, Silvery Lane and Rainbow Lane in the county of Lanark may become a member upon paying the fees approved by the Association.
How Membership Fees Are Used
There are some administrative expenses associated with General Meetings and dissemination of information. Although there has been a considerable saving on the costs associated with communication as a result of sending information electronically to those property owners who have provided e-mail addresses, some distribution by Canada Post is still needed so that all are included.
Our Lake Stewards have been able to arrange for the Association to participate in various programs for water testing (that of Rideau Valley Conservation Authority, for example) but it is important that we have the funds to purchase additional testing should it be required for any reason.
Recently a Helpful Handbook has been assembled for distribution to each property owner.
It is customary for the Association, in turn, to pay dues or give a donation to organizations with similar objectives, FOCA (Federation of Ontario Cottagers’ Associations), RVCA ( Rideau Valley Conservation Authority), for example.
The costs of maintaining the three access roads do not come out of the Association fees as the roads are managed by separate road committees.
At each AGM, the Treasurer provides a report to members.
