No More Costly Breakdowns; Trustees Authorized New Truck; Executive Got it; Delivery Tuesday

After putting off the replacement of the mainten-ance truck for several years, the Board decided it didn't want to chance another winter like last year's with a truck held together by maintenance patches and rigs. Vehicle replacement had been held up by the need to replace the roofs on Hoag Art Museum, Stoody Hall, and the office-and-maintenance building.
The Trustee Board heard preliminary work which had been done for a truck, and authorized the Executive to purchase a new truck. The Executive found a deal they believe couldn't be refused and moved ahead on the project, as authorized. In doing so, our winter snow plowing and garbage pickup looks a little more secured than before. Delivery is anticipated to take place next Tuesday, October 28th.
Our sincere appreciation is extended to Groundsman Danny Dake for working so hard to keep the old "buggy" running for so long. (Needless to say, my inserted photos are not actual photos of our trucks, but are stock photos.)

Still Waiting on that part for
the router to get the two
new cams connectable

Friday Afternoon, Oct. 24 at 54 degrees;
Last Week's Cam Shots can be found
on Menu Tab (Current: Lake Cams)

SLI CAM 2 - Friday - 10/24/14 - 4:18 pm

 SLI CAM 1 - Friday - 10/24/14 - 4:21 pm

We have indeed made contact from the two new cameras located on Lakeview Avenue in the Silver Lake Institute to the company that receives the signals and processes them through their servers. The volunteer SLI Administrators for the operation have been working very diligently with company representatives to get these new, quality photos and streaming "staged" at our SLI web site so it can be reached with no extra steps by viewers.

As of today, there are still extra steps required because of this company's RTSP (internet protocol) which normally operates independently of the openly-accessible web. There needs to be some type of converter from RTSP to HTTP (standard web protocol). A company representative is planning to install such a unit onto the current router on Lakeview this Monday, Oct. 20th. There will need to be some testing to be sure the system is operational for all standard broswers. 

When installation and testing are complete, viewers should be able to receive HD quality single photos with slight movement in them. That slight movement means that the system is trying to play crystal clear, HD quality streaming (as opposed to single photos) but the current equipment is not quite powerful enough. The option will be available to downgrade the HD high quality (underpowered) to a lesser quality which will enable the Lake to be viewed in full movement which is handy if one is trying to predict the speed of the changing weather patterns by cloud movement and the affect on wind on movable objects.

Unlicensed, Underage Driving of Golf Carts is both a Violation of
NYS Law and of Institute By-Laws

"Our [Institute] Insurance does not cover unlicensed or underage driving of golf carts," said Institute President Pete Mairs at the Annual Meeting of Cottage Owners this past Saturday. Pete's comment came about from a complaint from several residents present at the meeting. One Institute resident sternly suggested that we start handing out penalties and collecting on them. The Institute is authorized by NYS charter to employ Peace Officers but at the present time has not been taking advantage of this provision. The Institute of recent years has been relying on the services of Wyoming County law enforcement.

A copy of the rules and by-laws can be found on this web site's SITE MAP in the right hand column or for your convenience can be found at this link:
