Treasurers Report:


Jim Watt, Treasurer presented the Treasurer’s Report. The report was approved as written.


Jim discussed the increase in cost of the subscription for The Hillsdale Daily News. LDPOA subscribes to the newspaper to follow foreclosure notices of Lake Diane properties.  Jim made a motion to not renew the subscription, Rod seconded the motion.  A vote was taken, and the motion passed unanimously.  


Aquatic Life:


Clarke Environmental surveyed the lake weeds to assess the kill. They were satisfied with the results.  There have been many negative comments from members regarding the weed treatment.  Roger followed up with Clarke Environmental, and they have agreed to re-treat the weeds July 17th




Nothing new to report.




The cost of the permit for dredging is $2,000.00. Notices must be sent to all adjoining property owners of each specified dredging location.  There is a chance that if one property owner does not sign off, the location cannot be dredged.  Scott has requested names and addresses for property owners whose properties will be effected by the dredging for permit purposes.




Pea gravel is needed for the shoreline. The funding for the shoreline restoration project continues through various fundraisers.


We are in need of sand for the volleyball court and under the swing set at the shelter house park. The sand will be delivered prior to this year’s annual picnic.


Kevin trimmed the grass along the shoreline at Chickadee Park. The “old” play structure has been repaired and repainted.


Lake Diane Schedule of Events:


The preliminary planning for the annual picnic is underway. Set up will be August 4th @ 4PM.  We are still in need of volunteers to assist in multiple areas of the event.


Old Business:


There has been a judgment in favor of LDPOA in the LDPOA v Rogers case. The judgment orders the Rogers to remove all camper trailers, and pay all court costs associated with the case.


There have been 4/5 claims settled for back dues through small claims court. There have been five new claims for past dues filed.  The McDonald suit is moving forward.


Blaine LeBlanc has asked for a detailed ledger of his past due account. He has indicated that upon receipt and review, he will bring his account up to date.


New Business:


Terry Rupp discussed the pending updates to the shelter house. He questions the use of two doors since the tarp will still be used in the winter on the door side.  It was decided that there is a need for only one door.  He is seeking scrap 2” X 4” pieces of lumber.


After a successful Lake Diane 25th Anniversary Firework display, there has been a decision to contract the shooting of the show to Wolverine Fireworks.  The cost will be closely monitored.



At 11:04AM, Jim made a motion that the meeting be adjourned.   Roger seconded the motion.  A vote was taken, and the meeting adjourned.






Respectfully Submitted:




Kim Byrne, Secretary
