Burn Pile Notes

Who doesn’t enjoy watching a controlled burn? Dale and Ted put on a great show on June 1st when they burned the Burn Pile, located just north of Lot #442.

However, the operative word is controlled. We’ve noticed some members dumping ashes in the burn pile (versus a minimum of 3 feet from the burn pile) and in the woods. Both of which can ignite unexpectedly no matter how much you believe the ashes are out.

Also, some members are dumping contaminated dirt (dirt with gravel or sod) by (or in) the Burn Pile. Clean fill dirt can be deposited on the west side of the road to the Burn Pile. Contaminated dirt must be removed from the Park.

And finally, the Burn Pile is for branches only per the sign. The DNR does not allow us (or anyone at their residence) to burn treated, painted, glued, etc. lumber (that goes in the construction dumpster and is paid for at the office), trash (goes in respective dumpster) or leaves (goes in temporary leaf pile).

Did You Know?

TCCOM was originally incorporated in 1977 by John Olson, Harry Osvold, and Dan Person; 299 lot sites were laid out the following year and were completely sold out by October 1979. The annual fee was $190 a year and included electricity and taxes. At the general membership meeting on May 3, 1980, the first board of directors was installed and ownership was transferred to the members. Notes from the history of the park indicate 273 bottles of champagne were consumed at the celebratory luncheon following the meeting!
