Attention! Scott Lake Fish Stocked

Last Update-Water Break on Entree View

The water break has been fixed. As we’ve said, it’s not necessary to do a boil water notice. This is because we didn’t have to depressurize the system. If you notice some air in your faucets, run the water for a few minutes to flush it out.

Water was turned back on for the community and we’ve been advised that a water boil won’t be necessary. Water has been shut off on Entree View and Bonavista to perform the repairs.

KCL, our water repair company is on site and working on the break. We apologize for the water being turned off, that wasn’t our intention and we didn’t ask for that to happen. NWS was first on scene and decided to turn the water off without approval. We’ve since turned it back on and your water might be dirty for a bit.

Without explaining in total detail, due to not having all the information yet. Some work was being performed on a vacant lot and a water pipe was broken on the SLMC side. We’ve investigated the break and an emergency technician is in route to take care of it. We’re not sure yet if the they’ll repair it totally or just stop the leak for today. If they only stop the leak, a repair will have to occur at some point this week. We just don’t know yet until the tech arrives to let us know what can be done. We also don’t know yet if a water boil notice will need to occur. If you live on Entree View, you might experience low pressure or dirty water.

Annual Meeting on May 14 @ 10AM

Once a year the SLMC Board of Trustees meets to share the past years events, accomplishments and hurdles. We’ll also share our visions for the coming year.

Traditionally, this is also the time where we vote for additional Trustees. We’ve communicated the available seats on April 1st to get a call for candidates. The deadline for candidates was April 21st. This was mainly in part due to preparing a ballot, the bios of the candidate(s) and mailing it out before our mailing deadline of April 28th. This year we had a Trustee resign shortly after the March meeting and this Trustees seat was due to expire this year. In addition. two more seats are due to expire this year. There were three seats total that candidates could have put interest in. Unfortunately, we didn’t get any interested candidates. So we won’t be conducting a vote for candidates on a ballot.

We hope to be voting on the budget for 2022-2023. In order for a vote to take place, a quorum of the membership must be present first, either in person or by proxy. According to our bylaws, Article 5, section 3, 20% of the membership is required to vote on the transaction of business. Each property is entitled to one vote only. If you can’t attend the annual meeting and want your voice to be heard, you can fill out the “Homeowner Proxy” form and submit to the office. We request that all proxies be submitted by 5/11. This will give SLMC the opportunity to validate the proxy.

We will be conducting a Q&A period at the meeting, answering questions submitted via email and then taking questions from the floor. All questions and answers will be made available online after the meeting.

2022-2023 Budget Details

We’ve completed the budget details with explanations of the categories, a Q&A section and a future outlook of SLMC finances. If you have any questions, please refrain from turning to social media because they won’t get answered there. Instead, send your question to the office email and we’ll gather them to answer at the annual meeting. This way we cut down on answering the same question over and over. We’ll post the questions and answers too, so others can see. You can open the detailed budget here.

2022-2023 Budget Summary

The SLMC Board of Trustees has approved the Operations and Reserve Budgets. We plan to discuss the budget with the community at the Annual Board Meeting on May 14th @ 10am. We also hope that the community ratifies the budget at the annual meeting. We will distribute this summary to each community members mailbox and also make available here. If you have further questions about the summary or want a more detailed version in a spreadsheet format, please reach out to the office to obtain it.

Postponed Water System Work and Outage

The scheduled work for this week and the water shutoff on 4/27 is postponed until further notice. According to our contractor KCL, they haven’t received all the necessary parts to complete the work due to supply chain issues.

We will continue to communicate when this work is ready to be scheduled and plan the work to minimize as much water outage as possible.

Low-Income Home Water Assistance!

Scott Lake Maintenance Co. (SLMC)  and Northwest Water along with the Community Action Council (CAC) of Thurston County has entered a joint contract to assist Thurston County households in a Low-Income Home Water Assistance Program (LIHWAP).    This program specifically addresses Thurston County water customers whose income is at or below 150% of federal poverty guidelines.  This is a onetime payment for those that are facing imminent disconnection or are disconnected from water.    LIHWAP is designed to assist customers with a grant of up to $2,500 to bring their accounts to a zero balance. 

If you are behind on your water bill, and need some help paying, Community Action Council may be able to help! If you qualify under Federal income guidelines, they can give a one-time payment of up to $2500 to bring your balance to zero.  For more information, you can call Community Action Council at 360-438-1100 and press 5.

The application is available for pickup at your community admin office, by email from the admin office or you can download here.     Your community admin office can fax this application for any SLMC household.  

Below are the income guidelines for assistance with water (it says LIHEAP, but they are the same income guidelines). For any client signing, we would need income for the three months prior to the signature date, so an April signature will need income for January, February, and March.. This application can get them help with water, as well as their PSE bill or other heating as applicable.

Each person applying, will need:

  • Photo ID for the primary applicant
  • Social Security Cards for everyone in the home
  • Utility bill (water, sewer, electric, etc)
  • Proof of income for the three months prior to the signature date…

Once the application is received and all the requirements are met, CAC will work with Northwest Water and SLMC to ensure that the payment for water is received and recorded.   

We will need anything with original signatures physically returned, but anything else can be faxed or emailed.     Fax # is   360 736-1891 and mailing address is:    3020 Willamette Drive NE  Lacey WA  98516
