HOW DANGEROUS IS IT HAVING THE UNQUALIFIED INVOLVED IN THE LIVES OF THE "ELDERLY"?


In a letter to Atty. D.S. on March 22, 2017, Lori Englert, Property Manager, (the only direct link to the Owner Arlene Mink) wrote in part when addressing Flooding in Crystal Lake Club and my efforts to protect my home.....


"NONE OF OUR EMPLOYEES ARE QUALIFIED TO OFFER RESOLUTION TO HIS CONCERNS."......My concerns...FLOODING.....!


In other words Jamie LeMere, Gus, Golf Course Manager, Frank, Maintenence Manager and anyone associated with Crystal Lake Club is not 'QUALIFIED' to handle issues of FLOODING.


That is why Hurricane Irma was such an "Abortion" in Crystal Lake Club!!!


​AND, AND Abuse and Neglect of the Elderly is Criminal!!!





THE PERFECT CASE OF ABUSE AND NEGLECT OF THE ELDERLY


09/30/17 Saturday:  Arrived at Crystal Lake Club 8:00 am to meet with FEMA Rep ‘Tom’ (8:10 am).  S Country Club is again FLOODED from my residence to Hogan and beyond.  ‘FEMA Tom says he can not view home because it is surrounded by water and no way to access home!.  I suggest he gets in my car a we drive to the remaining smallest patch of “Dry”.  He not allowed in my car.  How about I get in his car!  I am not allowed in his car.  So FEMA Tom drives to dry spot and I put on boots so the home can be inspected.  He can not view the home because 




since 9/11/17 the home is surrounded by “FLOOD WATERS”.  FEMA Tom notes the Mold, Mildew and Petroleum residue on Lot 208.


8:32 am I called the HCSO and asked if anyone had called concerning Avon Park Street flooding S Country Club to Hogan.  Dispatch: “No”.  She refers me to AP Streets Dept. 8 to 5 pm Mon. to Fri.   I said I would like to have a Deputy look at it.  Dispatch: “They will have a Deputy Call Me.”  


8:38 am: Deputy Sheriff Council calls me and I again notify the HCSO of the complete roadway coverage of Flood Waters.  The D.S. advised me repeatedly  that Avon Park Streets Dept. is open M-F 8 to 5 pm.  I requested several times for him to view the situation which he refused.  I specifically advised  the D.S. that this was a matter of “Public Safety” to which he respond the HCSO responds to “Criminal” matters.


(A reasonable person might ask was Sheriff Blackman informed?  The answer is yes but remember Avon Park pays the Sheriff for his "SERVICES" and you will do nothing to cut off a "CASH COW"!)


1:26 pm:  I called the Fla. Environmental Protection Agency Hotline number  and had a conversation about Fl. DOH visit, their possible referral.  He tells me to call the HCSO because they have the “AFTER HOUR CONTACT NUMBERS” exactly for this reason.  He gives me the number of the Highlands County Emergency Management which of course when called is closed.
THE PERFECT CASE OF ABUSE AND NEGLECT OF THE ELDERLY


10/01/17:  Documenting the Abuse I returned on Sunday. to again photograph the extent of the FLOODING.  


I HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO WITNESS HOW DESPERATE SOME RESIDENTS ARE BECOMING BECAUSE OF THE FLOODING AND LACK OF LOCAL, COUNTRY AND STATE RESPONSE.  TWO RESIDENTS TOOK MATTERS INTO THEIR OWN HANDS WHICH I PHOTO DOCUMENTED.


You can not report this because the day before the Sheriffs Department, Dispatch and Deputy Sheriff both state they are interested in Flooding and of course the City of A.P. .....Is Closed....!

Crystal Lake Club Moble Home Community Avon Park, Florida                 Where Street and Property Flooding has become a way of life!

​​Exposure to the contaminated flood water is linked to health issues like intestinal problems, upset stomach, headache, and flu symptoms. "Anyone experiencing these and any other problems should immediately seek medical attention," says the EPA.

"The bacterial count in floodwater is extremely high," says Bradley.  "The chance of getting a skin infection is really quite serious." Bradley says exposure to chemicals can cause short term poisonings or increase a person's risk for long term health complications.  Time 08/29/17  

AND The City of Avon Park seems to suggest through their actions "WE KNOW NOTHING....NOTHING!"  

CHRISTMAS 2016:  WHY WAS A COMMUNITY ORDERED TO REMOVE ALL IT'S CHRISTIAN HOLIDAY SIGNS?


COULD IT BE A HOLIDAY SIGN ADDRESSED THE FLOODING?


OR COULD IT BE THE MANAGER AKA BY HER OWN IDENTIFICATION ON "MY SPACE" UNTIL AROUND 7/31/17 IDENTIFIED HERSELF AS "CRAZY SWEET JAMIE" AND POSTED 8 PICTURE TO PROVE IT???


​SO MUCH SO FOR EMPLOYERS CHECKING AN INDIVIDUAL "PRESENCE ON THE INTERNET"!!!



REMEMBER, ARLENE, LORI AND JAMIE TOOK THE SENIORS "KEEP CHRIST IN CHRISTMAS" SIGNS DECEMBER 2016 TO COVER UP THE FLOODING.  JAMIE WAS PHOTOGRAPHED STEALING MINE! ***SEE BELOW

Since Dec. 23, 2016 emailing the City Manager, Julian Deleon,  of Avon Park my concerns about city street "Stormwater management and drainage" and his response was it  is not the City's responsibility.  


EASY TO SEE WHY JESUS WAS EVICTED FROM CRYSTAL LAKE CLUB!!!


​SEE BELOW "HELLO........."

Since March 30, 2016 meeting with On Site Park Manager Larry Gilsrud to document the flooding and being told Management did not have an obligation to inform me the home I purchased was situated on flood prone leased property and the rate of $474.10 a month.  The park had no obligation to correct the situation.

10/14/17 SATURDAY:  PUBLIC RECORDS REQUESTS SENT TO :  THE CITY OF AVON PARK, FLORIDA DEPT. OF HEALTH -TALLAHASSEE, FLORIDA DEPT. OF ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION-FT. MYERS

"..having your duckies in a row"


Governments aledged conspiracy with the 'Property Owner and Management' just not the hundred of Seniors living in the Crystal Lake Community and Highlands Ridge Community!

WHAT ABOUT THE EXCEL ENGINEERING REPORT OF DECEMBER 11, 2015???


Excel Engineering 122 Wilshire Blvd.  Casselberry, Fl. 32707 prepared a report for and at the request of "Lori Engler Property Manager Mink Associates 1, LLC Crystal Lake Club MHC"   


"CRYSTAL LAKE CLUB MHC PRELIMINARY STORMWATER MANAGEMENT SYSTEM INVESTIGATION"  (That is what it is titled)


Englert sent this report to Atty. David Schumacher in response to his letter on my behalf.  I freely shared this REPORT with other residents and with Richard (Highlands Ridge).  When Richard was here checking on the flooding and after being shown the report he stated to me, "Why are they asking me to figure out the flooding they (CLC) have all the answers in the Report."


One of the many lies by Lori Englert in her letter to Atty. Schumacher was "no one ever complained about the flooding until Hummell" yet on 12/11/2015 Lori Englert received the results of EXCELS Report.  


That report is available if the Home Owners Association ever feels the need for the TRUTH?


10/9/17 Monday: 3:50 pm Phone conversation with Nolin Moon, Fl. EPA, Ft. Myers Waste Water.  Detailed my conversation with Josh Turner,  Friday 10/6/17, Avon Park Waste Water Supervisor how he removed the "Sewer Man Hole Cover" near Hogan Lane and S Country Club to "Reduce Avon Park Street Flooding".  Also detailed how Josh "educated' on how if Fl. EPA Permits a certain amount of "Waste Water" through the plant and it is less and Josh runs through "Flood Water" ....No One is the Wiser???   


Mr. Nolin Moon entered the "Complaint/Information" into and "In House Tracking System".   ie: Directing Storm Water into Waste Water to Alleviate Flooding....Sounds Like a Masters Paper to Me??? 

Suggestions or opinions?

Email you thoughts, or come see us in person.

But, in an Email on 12/28/2016 the City Manager, Julian Deleon, stated:


"The City does not maintain anything related to the drainage.  The roads and drainage were constructed by the developer.

The Southwest Water Mgmt. District issued a permit for the drainage to the developer of the subdivision, not the City.  This means that the property owner is responsible for drainage."


So per the City Manager, they "fix pot holes" and pave roads but are not responsible for A.P. Street "Storm Water Drainage and Management"  

Two Fla Statues are involved:  

Fl. St. 171.203



WHY DID THE GREEDY WOMEN, ARLENE MINK, LORI ENGLERT AND JAMIE LEMERE OF CLC HIDE THE FACT THEY HAD A ESTIMATE FROM ORANGE IRRIGATION AND DRAINAGE TO PUT IN A PUMPING STATION AT S. COUNTRY CLUB AND TREVINO CIRCLE TO REDUCE THE FLOODING???  HURRICANE IRMA CAME AND FLOODED 8 TO 10 HOMES AND EXTENDED THE POWER OUTAGE TO HUNDRED OF SENIORS.  THAT IS HOW NEW YORK ABSENTEE OWNERS DO BUSINESS!!!

rats.....Rats...RATS!!!


From Sept. 10, 2017, Hurricane Irma...No Help from Management/Ownership, Fla Dept. of Health, Fla Environment Protection Agency or County Health Dept. to educate the Elderly Residents.  No help from the Government Agencies, ie: City, County State to force the Ownership to provide the Residents with a “Safe, Clean, and Habitable” Community!  

“One of the “Community problems” identified relative to the Petition to Mink was a rodent problem identifying rats in the Park. Several homes reported yet the “Office” says no reports made such that an exterminator could be contracted (no one wants to report rats). Anyone with a rodent (rat) problem (any rat or rodent of any nature) should be reported to the Manager (this is a Property problem) such that action can be initiated to eradicate. It's not up to us (Residents) to control a problem of this nature.”  Nov. 17, 2017 CLC EBlast (Community Email Update)

As I have said:  “With Flooding and Destruction comes “”Public Safety Issues” well documented.   For me 1972 Hurricane Agnes Elmira/Corning New York.  2017 Ownership refused to help residents clean up property and left the Community flooded four (4) to five (5) weeks….wait the Golf Course is still Flooded.  SAD

Simple, provide the Residents with a “Safe, Clean, and Habitable” Community!  





Since Oct. 15, 2016 meeting with a new On Site Manager Jamie LeMere and again documenting the entire flooding of the lots 207, 208, and 209.  Eventurally, sending a letter to a Lori Englert, designated owners representative, who never responded.

Florida Statue Reference annexations:

171.062  Effects of anexations or contractions.-


(1)  An area annexed toa municipality shall be subject to all laws, ordinances and regulations in force in that municpality and .....shall... be entitiled to the same privileges and benefits as other parts of tha municipality upon the effective date of annexation.


171.203 in part:

(6) (c) Identify the local government responsible for the delivery or funding of the following services within the municipal service area or unincorporated service area:

2.Fire, emergency rescue, and medical.

3.Water and wastewater.

4.Road ownership, construction, and maintence.

5.Conservation, parks, and recreation.

6.STORMWATER MANAGEMENT AND DRAINAGE.


A review of the Annexation Documents does not suggest that Avon Park has delegated back to the Owner of the Property  Avon Park Street "Stormwater Management and drainage".

Hello CLC residents,

As the holidays are approaching many of you have decorated your homes. We have noticed some of you have placed signs in your yards as part of your decorations.

While it is ok to decorate this time of year, we still need to abide by the rules of the Park.

 Please see the rule below from the Crystal Lake Mobile Home Park Rules and Regulations regarding signage.

 13.          No signs are permitted with the exception of one 9x14 inch For Sale sign in the window of the mobile home.

 If you have a sign in your yard, please remove it to abide by the Park rules. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.

 Respectfully,

 CLC ManagementHello CLC residents,

YES, IT REALLY HAPPENED AND MANAGEMENT/OWNERS WENT AROUND AND CONFISCATED THE SIGNS!!!!

  
 YES, I HAVE  PICTURES OF THE ON SITE MANAGER COMING ON TO MY PROPERTY WHEN I WAS NOT THERE AND REMOVING THE SIGN AND TAKING IT TO THE OFFICE.    SUGGESTS TO ME WHAT WE CALLED IN CORRECTIONS A 'PERVERTED WAY OF "CARE..CUSTODY..CONTROL"!

Lori Englert, Off Site Managr for the owner of CLC, Arlene Mink aka Mink 1 LLC, wrote a letter in respnse to the flooding on 03/22/17 to a Sebring Attorney.   Paragraph 2 as follows:


"When the property was purchased in 2004 SWFWMD required Mink to have a drainage system for the entire 175 acre community engineered and present a plan to retain the stormwater runoff.  Somehow, when the community was constructed there was never a plan presented to or approved by SWFWMD.  The study and plan were prepared by Excel Engineering and subsequently approved by SWFWMD.  This plan was executed in 2005 and was designed for the golf course to hold the majority of the runoff."

                       SEE THAT LITTLE YELLOW DEVIL ABOVE?


That was a Flood Barrier to protect my home from flooding.   See several months earlier I spent $1000 dollars (on this Rental Land) to Rodriquez Lawn Service for SOD to protect the home but on July 31, 2017 Manager Jamie LeMere showed up at my front door and served with the First Notice to "Remove or Evict" signed by Attorney Craig Ables, Sebring Florida.  NOW WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW IS NOT ONLY DOES CRYSTAL LAKE FLOOD HOMES...BUT... THEY WILL NOT ALLOW YOU TO PROTECT THOSE HOMES FROM FLOODING!  


I ASKED LEMERE WHY TWO (2) OTHER HOMES HAD BARRIERS BUT SHE STATED SHE KNEW NOTHING ABOUT THAT.


THAT IS WHEN I MENTIONED TO HER ABOUT HER "CRAZY SWEET JAMIE" WEBSITE.  THE SMILE OF EVICTION CHANGED QUICKLY!


THE FACT IS CRYSTAL LAKE CLUB AND THE HOA CAN NOT STAND FOR ANYONE PROTECTING THEIR PROPERTY PARTICULARLY IF "DISTRACTS FROM THE BEAUTY OF THEIR COMMUNITY.


THE BARRIER WAS YELLOW....300 RECYCLE TRASH CAN LIDS WERE YELLOW,  THE FIRE HYDRANTS WERE YELLOW, THE CURBS AT THE REC HALL WERE YELLOW AND THERE WAS A YELLOW HOUSE.  BUT, THIS YELLOW OFFENDED THE "SENSES OF THE COMMUNITY'......GO FIGURE????

             Wednesday 10/11/17


Gary Maier, Fla. Dept. of Environmental Protection called me at 4:00 pm just when the Crystal Lake HOA meeting was just beginning.  Several times I mentioned to Maier that it appeared that "they had their duckies in a row".


Exception taken at least on one point.  Avon Park City Manager Julian Deleon states they were "helping out the property manager".


I am prepared to swear under oath that Josh Turner stated to me in his Office on Friday 10/6/17 that the 'reason he introduced Flood Waters into the sealed Sewer Waste Water System was to reduce "Avon Park Street Flooding".  He went on to demonstrate with hands first normal street flooding (mine for the past 1 1/2 years and the Irma Flooding.   TURNER also stated that the Fla. EPA did not care or would be told that the difference between "Waste Water" and "Toxic Flood Waters" going through the Waste Water Treatment Plant was important.  Turner condemmed me for not being "Waste Water Trained" and he "Ordered Me Out of His Office 3 or 4 times"...."GET OUT OF MY OFFICE"!


This is the first time that the City of Avon Park has accepted any responsibility for the flooding of Avon Park Streets.

Subject: Re: Crystal Lake Club

 Gary,

 We are working with the property owner and do not require the assistance. It has been a difficult situation for some residents, which has led to desperation to try to save their property. We have been regularly monitoring, and discontinuing any stormwater discharges into the sanitary system.

 We had some very high flows at the plant due to stormwater discharges. ​I have copied the plant operator to document known instances on the DMR. 

 We have been assisting the property manager at CLC with a 4" pump, and they just rented a 6" pump to move some stormwater around the property and relief the localized flooding. 

 Thank you. -JulianMaier, Gary <Gary.Maier@dep.state.fl.us>
