It is with heavy hearts that the FLOA board would like to announce that our Board President Wayne Rothwell, passed away last Sunday evening, August 2nd. Please keep his wife Carol and family in your thoughts and prayers.
Wayne was a larger than life character and is unlikely to be forgotten by anyone who knew him. In addition to serving on the FLOA Board for the past 5 years, he also served Forest Lakes for many years by holding various positions on several Boards of Directors, including the Water District Board and Fire District Auxiliary.
Prior to his service to Forest Lakes, Wayne was a distinguished member of the Armed Forces, and retired as a Lt. Colonel. After his military service, he went on to a fulfilling 15-year career at Boeing prior to retiring.
He is survived by his wife of 55 years, Carol, and their 2 children Scott and Lisa. A small private family service will be held this coming week at the Veteran's Cemetery in Phoenix. There will be memorial book posted on the front porch of the Forest Lakes Community Center next week (August 10 - 15) for neighbors and friends to share their memories of Wayne. The book will be delivered to Carol and family after we've all had a chance to capture some of our many fond memories of Wayne.
No community public gathering is planned at this time.
APS will be performing vegetation maintenance work along the 12kV distribution lines that run through the Forest Lakes this month (August). This work is part of the routine maintenance they schedule every three years in order to reduce the risk of electrical outages caused by vegetation; minimize the threat of fire; and ensure general public and APS-worker safety. During the scheduled maintenance, trained certified arborists with APS will evaluate each tree to determine if pruning, or in some cases removal, is required to maintain clearance and reduce the risk of conflict. Trees scheduled for pruning will be marked with white paint. Trees designated for removal will be discussed with the property owner (or adjacent owner if in the county easement) and marked with red paint.
The tree work will be done by Core Tree Care, whose contract crews will use marked vehicles. Work will occur over the next couple of months.
A SPECIAL OFFER TO RESIDENTS!!
Core Tree Care will have a chipper on site as they do the maintenance and would like to offer the chips to our residents at no cost AND they will deliver it right to your property. Looking for garden/flower mulch? Here's you chance to get some nice chippings. Please call Dillon DeLong with Core Tree Care at 480-745-6709 to arrange for a load(s).
Questions about the APS work should be directed to: Jamie at 928-607-1266 (normal working days/hours: Monday-Thursday 7:00AM to 5:30PM)
Hello from the FLOA VP.
I hope you're all doing well and staying safe and healthy/happy this summer!
Every year 3 FLOA board seats are up for election. This year, FLOA members will vote for the seats currently filled by Cal Phillips, Mack Hume, and me.
Per Article 2, Section 3 of the FLOA by-laws, we're soliciting volunteers to comprise a nominating committee, and need 4 members-at-large to fill these positions. From our by-laws, "It shall be the duty of the Nominating Committee to nominate at least one candidate for each of the vacancies to be filled, having obtained consent from the proposed nominee(s)."
Please consider volunteering. Committee members reach out to other members to garner interest and collect candidate interest forms. The committee and I would then vet the candidates to verify eligibility. The committee would also need to vet any floor nominated candidates at the annual September meeting.
If you're interested, please reply to me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also reach out to me with a phone call or text: 480-266-2311. We can do all our work remotely and maintain proper social distancing.
If anyone wants to chat or discuss what it's like being a FLOA board member, please reach out to any present (or former) board member.
