This year there were two treatments of the lake weeds. The first treatment was not as effective as it should have been. There were samples of the milfoil taken, and it has been determined that there are two different types. They are cross breeding and becoming resistant to the chemicals that have been effective in the past. There is a new chemical now being used. The cost of the weed treatment has increased substantially. This is due to the fact that the area that is being treated has nearly doubled in size. The lily pads will be treated in the fall, which is customary.
There have been two “No Wake” signs placed.
Approval has been granted to Craig Martin of 2410 Mindy Lane to resurface his current deck and also enlarge it. Approval was also given to Randy & Kelly Stuckey of 2159 Mindy Lane to add a metal roof to their deck along with replace the current roof of the house with metal roofing.
There were members in attendance to discuss the board’s enforcement of removal of travel trailer’s and rv’s from their properties. Members are upset because the deed restrictions for all the subdivisions are outdated, and they wish to be able to store and use their travel trailer’s and rv’s at their own discretion, which puts them in violation. A lengthy discussion ensued. Up for discussion at the next monthly meeting will be the potential for revising the deed restrictions for each subdivision along with allowing the use and storage of travel trailers and rv’s. Roger made a motion that all action which is currently being taken against members with travel trailers and rv’s on their properties cease until the August 13th monthly board meeting has taken place. Jerry seconded the motion. A vote was taken, and the motion passed unanimously.
Trustee, Scott Coakley is studying information that has been gathered to date for the dredging project(s). He will continue to research, then he will bring his findings to the board for discussion.
Terry Rupp is looking for volunteers to help with the shoreline restoration project. Please contact Terry is you are available to help.
Nothing new to report.
Lake Diane Events:
The jump house has been ordered for the family picnic. Jerry Agrusa is chairing the event, and is in need of volunteers to help with set-up, activities, and clean-up.
The golf outing is scheduled for July 30 at Windwood Hollow. There has been a great response with many teams signing up.
Jerry Agrusa is working to pursue past due accounts. At most, five accounts can be filed with small claims court at a given time. The five with the largest outstanding balance will be pursued first. The court has advised it takes six weeks for letters to be sent to defendants.
Ray Neely has gathered information regarding the legal use of golf carts on public roads. At present time, the DNR is requiring all golf carts to have ORV permits. The township supervisor has the ability to give consideration, then overturn the requirement. This information will be handed off to the township supervisor for consideration, then discussed at the next monthly meeting.
At 11:50AM, Roger made a motion that the meeting be adjourned. Al seconded the motion. A vote was taken, and the meeting adjourned.
