Annual Board Meeting
Park 1 Boat Ramp Closed for Major Ramp Repair
Park One is temporarily closed to rebuild the boat loading ramp. Boat launchers are asked to use other ramps for the next few weeks while contractor equipment is in place. The park gate will be chained and locked to protect heavy equipment and for member safety.
Lyle Lyndstrom an EPBA board volunteer responsible for a number of recent dock repair projects, reported that the concrete section of the ramp cracked during the past dry spell causing difficulty and possible damage to boats and injury to people using the ramp. The repair work will require breaking and hauling away the old concrete and replacing 280 sq feet of new 6 inch concrete slab as well as 8 tons of new rock.
The total cost of the project could reach $7,000 and is major expense for the Association. Upkeep and repairs to Association property are primarily funded from Association dues. Current and prospective members are asked to complete and submit their 2015 applications and fees to help with this and other community projects.
The board will announce the completion of the ramp upgrade. Depending on the weather, Park One and the rebuilt ramp should be ready for late spring use.
Any questions call Lyle Lyndstrom at 815-584-7410.

EPBA Volunteers build New Dock Ramp
Lyle Landstrom, Chair of the EPB Docks Committee shows EPBA President Armen Asaturian and Past President Ted Amigdalos the work done at Park 2. Lyle point out the work was a result of many volunteers this spring. Many board members visited several problem areas after the board meeting on May 3rd. The past winter snow and rains will require park and beach erosion repair. The board has several additional projects in planning to prepare the parks before the Memorail Day holiday opening.
