NEW MEMBER ACTIVITY:
To date there are 196 members.
The dredger has hired a sub-contractor to perform final excavation. All work is complete, and the dredgers equipment has been removed.
There is currently no water spilling over the dam.
Roger has been in contact with Clarke Aquatic to schedule lily pad treatment.
Roger shared a report he received from Arda Boucher titled “Michigan Hybrid Watermilfoil Project”. It is a report which maps out locations of milfoil located in Lake Diane.
A dock has been installed on the shore of the park located on Woodbridge Rd.. Kevin and Terry Rupp will speak to the responsible party regarding removal. It is not only a liability issue for LDCA, but also an exclusivity issue.
The DNR now mandates that use of the public access will require a State Park Pass to launch watercraft.
Terry Rupp reported that he has not heard back from HCRC regarding the installation of limestone at the launch located at the shelter house.
The cost to survey each park will be $600. This is above the budgeted cost. Roger made a motion that the board approve an additional $600 to perform surveys. Jim seconded the motion. A vote was taken, and the motion passed unanimously.
The “No Swimming Or Fishing/Parks Close At Dusk” signs have been ordered.
The Delta Drive park needs to be cleaned up. Terry Rupp has volunteered to coordinate.
CALENDAR OF EVENTS:
After a lengthy discussion, it was decided that the remaining LDCA sponsored events be cancelled to the the fluidity of the Covid-19 situation. It is with regret that these steps are necessary.
Kevin discussed the importance of attendance at upcoming Amboy Township Meetings to promotion of a dock ordinance. With the current plans of development at French Quarter there is a concern that “key holing” could become an issue. Amboy Township meetings are held the second Wednesday of each month. Members of the board will plan to attend to encourage effort to prevent any possible adverse impact.
At 11:18 Roger made a motion to adjourn. Jerry seconded the motion. A vote was taken and the meeting adjourned.
Kim Byrne, Secretary
