There is no update on the progress of the raising of the level of the lake by 3”. Karlye Horton has indicated through written correspondence she will be in contact with the HCDC. Raising the level of the lake will have a positive impact on the dredging projections. There is currently one inch of water flowing over the dam.

Clarke Aquatic has experienced a delay in treatment of the lily pads due to a change in state law. They anticipate treatment to be 9/25/2019.

The buoys and “No Wake” signs will be left in for the winter season. They will be lighted with a solar light.

Kevin indicated that the weevils previously stocked in Lake Diane continue to help reduce the milfoil growth. He encourages lake residents to leave approximately one foot of grass/weed growth at the shoreline where possible.

The goose egg roundup resolution has been approved by Amboy Township with a vote of 5-0. The resolution is in affect through 2024.

Water testing continues thanks to Arda Boucher and Bill Smith. Reports indicate that the condition of the water is improving.


Dredging is in progress.


The deeds to the parks are currently in the hands of John Lovinger. Brad Smith has signed them. They will be recorded, then mailed to LDCA.

The Lake Diane Annual Fireworks will be endorsed by Lake Diane Community Association for Independence Day, 2020. Scott Coakley has volunteered to chair and organize the event.

To date, there are many experienced volunteers ready to promote the event to lake residents (only) and collect donations door to door.


A meeting of the board members will take place today after the regular monthly board meeting to formally dissolve LDPOA.

There was discussion about the use and protection of the name “Lake Diane” in regards to social media. “Lake Diane” is not a protected name, and is available for use in social media.

Karlye Horton believes LDCA would qualify to receive gaming permits through the state. Roger turned the forms over to Kim for submission to the gaming commission.

The dredging of North Bay View Drive will begin Monday. The spoils will be placed on Trudy and Jody Yoder’s property. There is a huge concern over the loads of sand that have been placed in the mouth of the bay by property owners.


Don Fletcher was in attendance to discuss his findings regarding the abandonment of Uphill Drive by the HCRC August 20, 1998. He presented county resolution #98-11 to the board for filing.
