Family living at The Last Resort ordered by judge to remove ‘barge’ used to load and unload watercraft
By GAIL OBER, LACONIA DAILY SUN
LACONIA — A local judge has temporarily limited some of the activities that can be performed in the common areas of a five-unit condominium unit on Weirs Boulevard called The Last Resort.
Responding to a request for an injunction to stop the owners of two of the five units from performing what they call "jet-ski/water bike repairs and sales," Belknap County Superior Court Judge James O'Neill said the Weeks family is prevented from repairing watercraft in the common areas of the property.
They are also prohibited from launching watercraft that doesn't belong to them from the common area and that a "barge" or a platform-based boat used by them to take smaller personal watercraft to other parts of the lake, must be removed from the common dock area.
The Weeks family owns two of the five units and the other three owners reactivated a dormant condominium association to stop the Weeks's three adult sons from conducting what they call commercial activities in the common areas, which they say use more than the Weeks's fair share of dock space.
An affidavits presented to O'Neill by Karen Weeks, who is the mother of the three boys, said she and her family enjoy the use of The Last Resort – A Condominium during the summers and that the so-called "barge" is a boat owned by them that is equipped with a lifts so they can load their Jet Skis at their home and safely launch them in the middle of the lake and away from boat traffic near the Weirs Channel.
Weeks said that they occasionally have guests and that there are no commercial activities at or in either of their units.
She said that the photographs submitted to the court showed crowds from a single charity event the family had in 2014 that was approved by the association.
O'Neill said his order will remain in full force pending any further order by the court. He said that any violations will constitute contempt of court.
