Jim has several grants of authority that were submitted with no payment and several payments that were submitted with no grant of authority. He will contact said property owners to complete missing payments and/or documentation.
Application has been made for weed treatment. Treatment of the lake weeds will take place the first week of June.
Karlye Horton has been in communication with the HCDC attorney to finalize approval for raising the lake level. Raising the level of the lake will have a positive impact on the dredging projections. As of today, there is no update.
There is much debate regarding the transfer of all seven parks on Lake Diane from LDPOA to LDCA. In effort to smoothly transition the parks ownership, LDPOA/LDCA’s attorney has held dialog with Amboy Township’s attorney, and a Quit Claim Deed was filed transferring the parks from LDPOA to LDCA. Amboy Township is under the assumption that LDPOA is no longer in existance, and is prepared to take jurisdiction of the parks. Their objective is to close the parks, then post “No Trespassing” signs for a period of two years, then revisit the situation. (This includes the playground equipment, the boat launch and shelter house.) Obviously, we take a strong stance against this action. At today’s meeting, Roger presented communication documents between LDPOA/LDCA and LDPOA/LDCA attorney Karlye Horton and Amboy Township attorney John Lovinger. After a long discussion, it was decided that we discuss our options with our attorney, then proceed as directed.
Kim made a motion that all communication documentation regarding the parks presented by Roger at today’s meeting be made part of the meeting minutes. Roger seconded the motion. A vote was taken, and the motion passed unanimously.
