Aquatic Life:


Aquatic Weed Control has been paid $800.00 to apply for the necessary permit from the DNR to treat the weeds in the lake for the 2016 season.


There are seven LDPOA members attending the goose nest destruction class offered by the DNR which is being held April 7 in Novi, Michigan.




Building Committee:


The owners of the camper trailer on Easy Street have secured an attorney. They deny the allegation they are in violation of their deed restrictions.  Roger will schedule an appointment with Roy Brandes to discuss moving forward with the case. 




Nothing new to report.




Kevin has gathered information on the soft landing material (shredded rubber) that will potentially be placed under the donated playground equipment at Chickadee Park. He was unable to speak with the company the structure is coming from, but was able to gather information via the Internet.  His best estimate is that it would cost roughly $800 for adequate coverage and protection.  There are negative reviews on the product itself.  After discussion, it was decided that pea gravel with a treated lumber border will be a better option.

There is nothing new to report on the shoreline restoration project.



Welcome Committee:


Nothing new to report.


Lake Diane Events:


There is a conflict with the scheduling of the car show Labor Day weekend. Roger will contact Fred Lietzke and Gary Beale to discuss.

Kim Byrne read a letter from Cyndee Gochanour, Hillsdale County Toys for Tots Director, commending Lake Diane for their generous donation to Toys for Tots.


New Business:


Roger has composed a spring newsletter to include with the annual billing. The newsletter will indicate if dues are not paid prior to May 15, parcel owners will not receive weed treatment of their shoreline.


At 10:36AM, 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
