Newsletter August 2021
Your HHOA has been busy trying to improve the quality of our subdivision. The posts at the parks have been painted Red, White, and Blue which makes them stand out, Thanks to our volunteers. Swing sets and picnic tables are in the process of being painted. Rock seawalls are being installed, when approved by EGLE, and grass is being planted and mowed. Street lights are being monitored, (no other subdivisions on the lake have streetlights), bad roads and potholes are being reported, trees are being trimmed, trash dumpsters are being provided twice a year; Spring and Fall. There is a lot that is going on behind the scene also.

Keep Honeymoon Heights Subdivision Clean
Appearance of Honeymoon Heights is essential, The Board will report Blight in the Sub-Division to Cato Township, and Cato will take action against those who have trash in their yards. HHOA Board wants to encourage residents of the HHOA subdivision to keep their places clean, it does help with property values. and the HHOA board is trying to do their best to stamp out Blight. The Board of Governors voted to continue having a trash day twice a year, once in the Fall and once in the Spring.
Some of the Channel has been dredged partially, through HHOA calling and making the Townline Lake Association Improvement board aware of the problem. Montcalm County dug out the north side of the weir and County Drain Commissioner had at least 100 yards south of the weir dredged out. This is to be done every three years. We are assessed in our taxes to have it done, so they have the money to do it, they just need to be held accountable to every 3 years.
July 4th ORV Parade
The Parade was a great success, with side by sides, golf carts and bikes participating in it. The parade covered HHOA and Schmeid Park, with much candy thrown to Children and big Kids along the route.
Honeymoon Heights Dues
Honeymoon Heights collects dues annually, dues are $25 per year, per lot. Other Lake Owner Associations pay annual dues of $200 to $1,500 per lot. We feel pretty blessed.
Unpaid dues will be turned over to a collection agency. Lot owners that owe dues are finding out that they can't sell their houses until the dues are paid.
“Pay your dues and follow the rules"
HHOA Board Meeting
The next HHOA Board of Governors meeting is August 19, 2021 at 7 pm in the Clubhouse on Birch Dr. All members are welcome to come and give their input.
Welcome Committee has been started. Nancy Lundwall has volunteered to put together a Welcome Packet consisting of a welcome letter, HHOA information, special local merchant coupons, and other goodies, like ingredients for Smores !!! So, if you know of any newcomers to the Subdivision let her know. Nancy and her husband live on the corner of Nelson and Maple St.
Camper Trailers and Mobile Homes in HHOA
Camper trailers and Mobile Homes, are not allowed to be used as a residence in HHOA. The ByLaws are clear on this matter as well as Cato Township regulations. Those who are not in compliance are at risk of being turned into Cato Township and given a citation.
HHOA understands that during the holiday weekends for up to 2 weeks, one may need extra sleeping quarters and overlooks this bylaw. Also you can get a waiver for 90 days on your lot if you are building a home, this waiver can be obtained at a HHOA Board of Governors Meeting.
Unlicensed Vehicles and Boats
Vehicles and boats which are parked on your lots must either be licensed or removed, this is part of our Bylaws for HHOA. Having unused vehicles and boats on a lot only brings down the value of homes in HHOA subdivision, we do not want to look like a used car lot. Please take care of the unused vehicles on your lot. The alternative is your name will be turned into Cato Township, this is a type of Blight.
