New Service District Manager, Dennis Strand

 

 The board is pleased to introduce our new Service District Manager, Mr. Dennis Strand.  Dennis has a Masters Degree in Public Health from the Yale University Medical School and has worked in the medical and business fields as Executive Director of Operations, with responsibilities in customer service, personnel, and financial/budgetary administration.  He routinely handled  $12,000,000 to $20,000,000 budgets, so we all can have great confidence in his administering the service district's fund.  Dennis also has extensive experience in working with applicable State, Federal and municipal laws and regulations, which of course is another especially significant aspect of his career. 

     Dennis and his wife Peggy have recently moved to the Murphy area and are excited to contribute to our community.  If you get a chance, by all means, drop by and meet Dennis. He is not only exceptionably capable but very personable as well, and would delight in meeting all of you.

New News!

Bear Paw Residents,


Welcome back to those of you who have enjoyed the winter months away from the cold and precipitation of the Western North Carolina Mountains. As the new Bear Paw Service District Manager I look forward to meeting you personally in the months ahead.

Having been here for the past three months I have identified a number of areas where we can improve and enhance Bear Paw and its amenities and allow for an ease of operations and communications. One such project just completed was cutting back the trees along the entrance from Hiawassee Dam Road. The result is improved vision for the guards and for vehicles entering and exiting as well as enhancing appearance. Thanks to Claude for doing a great job!

You will be seeing some changes in the months ahead in the pool area with pressure washing, painting and new signage to reflect changes in NC swimming pool owner regulations and responsibilities. Additional projects will include work to improve the drainage and condition of the tennis court, playground as well as road signage and the concrete area within the pavilion.

With the combined efforts of the Board and residents I am confident that we will grow and expand and allow for all who live and visit an enjoyable, safe and friendly environment.

Dennis Strand
