Meetings ARTICLE 5 Regular meetings of the Association shall be held in the months as follows: April October at a designated place as ordered by the Executive Board. A change in the By-laws may be presented at any regular meeting but will be tabled and offered at the next regular meeting for a vote. Written notice of such proposed amendment to the By-laws shall be included in the mailed notification of the next regular meeting. A quorum, consisting of one-third of the regular voting membership must be present. Two-thirds majority of the members present and voting is necessary for passage of any amendment to the By-laws. No proxy votes will be accepted on this or any other subjects to come before membership. 4 The guidelines were developed to support the following philosophies: The people who support BLIA over time should be the ones who benefit most from the activities and resources of the organization. The BLIA treasury should be reimbursed for the expense of the acquisition and development of the launch by those who use the launch. The purpose of the launch site is to provide members the means of launching their boat(s) in the Spring and removing them in the Fall. IT also is to provide emergency or special circumstance launch and removal access to the members. It is not a launch site for short term access to the lake. Considerable time, thought and input by your access committee along with the residents most affected has resulted in the following Management Plan: 1. No parking of vehicles and trailers on the ramp or street. 2. Keys (or other security access) will be held by officers of BLIA or a designated gatekeeper only. (Residents near the site will not have keys, so as not to be bothered.) 3. Zero wake in and out of the lagoon and channel, 4. In conjunction with City guidelines, signs will be posted, as needed, on launch dates on 53 rd, to alert oncoming vehicles of launching activities, 5. Spring launch dates will be 6 in number: Fall launch dates will be 5 in number: Sat. after aerators are removed Second weekend in Sept. Last weekend in April Second weekend in Oct. Second Wed. in May Last Wednesday in Sept. Third weekend in May Hours will generally be 8:30 a.m. (3 p.m. on Wednesdays) to 7 p.m. 6. Emergency use: All launch and removal must be pre-arranged to a mutual agreement with the gatekeeper. Hours: 10 am is the earliest contact until 7 pm. Payment must be paid PRIOR to launch or removal. Make checks to BLIA. Guidelines for membership: 1. Bass lake Improvement Association Member: Starting in 1996, the annual membership fee will be $30. Rights, privileges and responsibilities similar to pre Emergency and special circumstances launch If launching members have an emergency or a special circumstance, they may contact the designated gatekeeper and arrange for a launch or removal. Short term access to the lake is not provided. There will be a $25 fee, payable by check to the BLIA, prior to each launch or removal. ($25 in/$25 out). Ten year, 1995, pre-paid members are allowed one emergency in/out for free. Guidelines may need to be refined as actual use dictates. Association will approve changes. 5
