Fife Lake Neighbor,

Greetings from your Fife Lake Lakefront Property Owners Association Board (FLLPOA)! What a year it has been. The season drew to a close with a final milfoil treatment in early October. While there was still milfoil in the lake at the end of the 2006 season Iím pleased to report that the lake was useable throughout this past season unlike the 2005 summer season. A big thanks to all that voluntarily contributed both financially and physically to this effort. The fall of 2006 saw the creation of a Special Assessment District specifically to fund weed control in Fife Lake. The two local townships agreed to form this district but did not agree to everything the FLLPOA Special Assessment Committee requested in its petition. The good news is your association wonít be harassing you for more money every few months. The down side is the local townships have taken full responsibility for the treatment process and have hired a lake engineer, Progressive AE, who in turn hired a chemical applicator named PLM. This all happened amid the protests of your association board and the special assessment sub committee. There is a glimmer of good news; the townships have agreed to form an ad-hoc committee consisting of one person from Fife Lake Township (Bob Meyer, also now deputy township supervisor in addition to various other township duties), one person from Springfield Township (Phil Sorenson) and one person from the FLLPOA Board (John Strobridge). This committee will have oversight over this seasonís treatment process and will report back to the two township boards regarding the results. Feel free to show up at your township board meetings and observe how your local government works! If you are a permanent resident of the Fife Lake area consider getting actively involved in your township boards!

There are some folks that have questioned the continued need for a lakefront owners association now that there is a Special Assessment District in place. The answer is an emphatic yes, there is a need! The mission has changed from fund raising and treating the lake to that of oversight and caretaker of our assessment tax money. It is now more important than ever to be a member of FLLPOA. The townships have the mechanical responsibility we once had but we now have a responsibility to insure our assessment tax dollars are being spent prudently and in the most efficient way. This wonít happen unless we as riparian owners stick together and speak with one voice. Many of you are not permanent residents of the Fife Lake community and therefore have no voting power in local elections. As a member of the association you at least have a conduit to your local township government. Here is more good news! Your Board has decided to wave all dues for the calendar season. It is our goal to get all 191 riparian owners signed on as association members. Future yearís dues are anticipated to be no more than $10, just enough to cover communication expenses.

We are seeking any and all persons interested in being FLLPOA board officers and board members. If you have any interest at all in being involved with the board please contact Jerry Cherwinski at 1-810-686-6505 and leave a message if no one answers or send an e-mail to

We are also trying to compile a data base of all membership e-mail addresses and telephone numbers. E-mail can speed up the communication times and save money. Please respond to with your name, lake address and telephone numbers that you can be reached at throughout the year. If you donít have an e-mail address please locate a friend or relative that does. Also keep an eye on and click on FLLPOA. We will try to keep this site up to date. See you in July!
