Reminder: Label Your Property!
A severe storm passed through our area on June 28, 2018. Damages varied, from uprooted trees (below) to overturned floating docks. Let this be a reminder to everyone to clearly label your property with your subdivision number and lot number. Eagle Point Bay is Subdivision number 14. If you own lot 271, then your property should be labeled: 14-271. SIPC recommends labeling anything that can blow or float away, such as boats, docks, floats, chairs, life jackets, etc. This will help protect your property in the event of another such storm!
New Johnson County Law on UTV Usage
There is a new Johnson County law that places restrictions on UTV usage on County roads. If you drive a Utility Terrain Vehicle and/or recreational off-road vehicle (ATV, golf cart, etc.) on our roads, you must have a valid permit from Johnson County and meet the requirements of the ordinance. It is in your best interest to read the law as posted and acquire the necessary permit from the County. To read the ordinance, click here.
