On April 26th, 2019 Tahoe Keys Property Owners Association (TKPOA) received a voicemail message from Mike Herron – Acting Manager of Tahoe Keys Marina and Yacht Club (TKM&YC) indicating that the TKM&YC will be honoring the 1991 Superior Court of California – Stipulation Agreement No: 1225, and will provide free boat launching and retrieval to TKPOA Property Owners. Even though this “voicemail message” does contain a number of inaccuracies as it relates to the 1991 Superior Court of California – Stipulation Agreement No: 1225 and its implementation of TKPOA Property Owners free unlimited launching and retrieval of their boats we “understand the intent of this message”.
At this time the TKPOA Board of Directors and TKPOA Staff recommend to all TKPOA Property Owners that they provide their current TKPOA Membership Card and a copy of their boat/vessel registration to expedite their launching and retrieval process when they utilize the TKM&YC boat ramp. As provided in the 1991 Superior Court of California – Stipulation Agreement No: 1225 this is not a requirement.
The 1991 Superior Court of California – Stipulation Agreement No: 1225 provides: Section IV (4) Those TKPOA members and TKB&HA members shown as members upon the then current year membership lists provided to TKM&YC by TKB&HA and TKPOA have the nonexclusive right to launch and retrieve boats (a) owned by such member or (b) shown upon the then current year membership list as to be used by such member in such year during TKM&YC's regular business hours, without charge by or compensation to TKM&YC, using the boat ramp now or hereafter located upon the land described in Exhibit A-1 and for such purpose to use the roadways now or hereafter located upon the land described-in Exhibit A-1, the size and type of boats being so launched and retrieved being limited to the size and type of boats which TKM&YC is then permitting members of the public to launch and retrieve using the boat ramp. TKM&YC may relocate the boat ramp and roadways but shall always, at its sole expense, maintain a boat launching ramp in good and useable condition upon the property described in Exhibit A-1 for such use by TKPOA members and TKB&HA members and use by such others as are permitted such use by TKM&YC.
All such use may be interrupted during time reasonably required for repair or maintenance of the boat ramp. The rights granted to TKB&HA and TKPOA by this paragraph are perpetual. The membership lists provided by TKPOA to TKM&YC pursuant to this paragraph shall be used only for the purposes of the paragraph and shall not be used for any other purpose including but not limited to not being used for solicitations, direct mailings or the like.
