I feel it is important for clarification to be made once again on the responsibilities that the IPOIA have as apposed to the City responsibilities. When Ivanhoe became a city two years ago the roads and dams were turned over to the city. They are no longer the responsibility of the IPOIA. Your maintenance fee's of $6 per lot and the sticker fee's are used for the parks and lakes and insurance costs for the buildings. If you wish, you may come by the office and pick up a detailed list of where these fee's are spent. We have heard several comments from residents that money is being spent to asphalt the park walking trail and in front of the community center and the roads are in such bad repair. Your taxes which are paid to the city are what is used to do road and dam repair. If you have questions concerning the roads and the dams, please contact the city office.

Work has begun at the walking trail at Helipad Park. Many of the residents of Ivanhoe have asked that the walking track be refinished because it is a wonderful place to walk for health reasons. In an overwhelming vote, the IPOIA board decided that it would be money well spent and beneficial to so many residents to refinish the track. At the last IPOIA meeting John Paul Feeley requested that the board also consider adding a walkway to the helipad to make it easier to move people to the Life Flight helicopter in an emergency. In co-operation between the City and the IPOIA, the City offered to split the cost of the walkway to the Helipad. This is a project that greatly benefits all of the residents of Ivanhoe. Work will also begin today on refinishing the walkway to the community center as well as adding handicap parking in front of the center (pics will be posted later). Remember: The funds that are used to improve your park areas are from maintenance and sticker fees that you pay to the IPOIA.
