Retirement

For the past 38 years, Park Foreman Rodger Frank has faithfully served the association and members of this community. It is certainly with mixed emotion that we announce his planned retirement at the end of December. Rodger was employed by Keith Construction and was on hand when Midnapore as well as other communities were being developed and built by Keith Construction. Keith would be bought by Genstar and Rodger remained working as a grounds maintenance worker for the newly formed association of Midnapore Lake. He would later become a Supervisor and Park Maintenance Foreman. Rodger’s work ethic has been un-paralleled and he has always placed the needs and member expectations first with every task he set out to do. Rodger has always preferred to work quietly the background without great fanfare or recognition. Rodger’s planned last day of work is December 31st, 2021. Internally we will recognize and acknowledge his contributions to the membership and association. Due to the continuing state of medical emergency unfortunately we are unable to host a formal indoor community event to celebrate this occasion. Members are invited and welcome to drop off cards or letters at the office addressed to Rodger.

2022 Lake Maintenance Fee Increase

The annual lake fee for 2022 will increase to $255.00 plus GST. In May 2021, the Board of Directors for the MLRA approved a fee increase of $30.00 (plus GST). This decision to increase the fee is consistent with past Board decisions, which in 2011 introduced the first fee increase and agreed that every 5 years a review would be conducted and adjustment made. The last fee increase of $30.00 was made for 2017.  This fee increase addresses rising operating costs due to inflationary trends of the goods and services we depend upon as well as contributions to the restricted reserve fund. This fund is used to finance the costs of major maintenance as well as the cyclical replacement of park assets. Even at $255.00 plus GST, Midnapore Lake remains to have the lowest maintenance fee among all lake associations in Calgary and the surrounding area.
