NEW TRASH/RECYCLING CONTRACT EFFECTIVE JUNE 1: At its April 22 meeting, the Board authorized a contract with SDI/Kerkim, LLC, to provide trash and recycling services for the Lake Monticello community. SDI currently serves clients in Charlottesville and Culpeper, as well as other Virginia localities. The service will be “single stream,” meaning that residents will no longer have to separate their trash and recycling. The co-mingled refuse will be sorted at the Van de Linde Recycling Center at Zion Crossroads, resulting in a greater quantity of material being recycled. The process for transition from Waste Management to SDI will be worked out soon and will be announced in a special flyer that will describe what must be done to implement the change. The flyer will be delivered to mailbox cubbyholes and posted on the website. An article on the subject also will be included in the Spring/Summer issue of the Lake Monticello News. The cost of trash and recycling is covered by the annual Improved Property Fee, which homeowners pay at the same time as their member dues each year. CHANNEL 10 PROGRAM ABOUT DUES INCREASE PROPOSAL: President Leighton Cumming and Treasurer Mike Harrison will be guests of cable channel 10’s “This Week at the Lake” on Thurs., May 6, to talk about the Board proposal to increase member contribution to reserves with an increase in annual dues of $108.The program will be aired at 7PM on the 10th and will be repeated through Wed., May 12, at 9AM and 7PM daily.

STATUS OF FISHING PIER CAMPAIGN: Fundraising for the construction of the Community Fishing Pier is making great progress. Bo’s Pier Group has collected and turned over $11,560 to LMOA for the project. That’s 46% of the estimated $25,000 needed to construct the pier. There still are outstanding pledges in the amount of $740. The pier is a community project and will be built at Tufton Lake with donations and volunteer labor. It will give all residents easy access to a great place to fish or simply to enjoy the beauty of nature. If you have not yet contributed to this project, please help make it a reality for our community. Donation forms are available at the Administration Office or on the website at Just click on the link on the homepage.

A SMART THING TO DO: Clearing leaves and debris from culverts prevents erosion and damage to driveways, drainage ditches and roads. Most importantly, it helps prevent silt and sediment buildup in our lake and keeps its ecosystem healthy. LMOA RECREATION ANNOUNCEMENTS Swim instructors needed for the LM Pool.
