Treasurers Report:


Jim Watt, Treasurer presented the Treasurer’s Report. The report was approved as written.  Jim also provided the board members with an updated statement of past due accounts.


Aquatic Life:


There were six members in attendance for the goose egg and nest destruction class presented by the US Fish & Wildlife. The requirements for the permit are outdated as of this year.  A resolution signed by an elected official must be on file.  Roger and Jerry have been in contact with Amboy Township Supervisor, Brad Smith to bring the status of the condition up to date.  Upon satisfaction of the resolution, the association will be in compliance with the requirements.  The first goose egg roundup is tentatively scheduled for April 16th, with a second roundup April 30th.


Building Committee:


Jeff Sabo has received written permission from the DNR to install a dock on his property at Bear Point. There was question as to whether their installation of a dock would impede the channel causing a “No Wake Zone”.  The DNR has measured, and verified that there is adequate distance for two watercraft to pass while making wake.  Prior to installation of their dock, application must be made to Lake Diane Building Committee.


The lone non-compliant trailer owner on Easy Street continues to deny claims that they are in violation of their deed restrictions. Their claim is there was a break in chain of title, causing the deed restrictions to be ineffective for their property.   LDPOA attorney, Roy Brandes has verified through title search that there are deed restrictions in place, and the property owner’s are legally bound to conform.  There are dates scheduled for Discovery, Pre-Trial and Trial.


Application has been received for a storage barn at 14911 Woodbridge Rd.
