Aquatic Life:


The goose egg round-up was a success. There were fifty-four eggs collected the first day, and zero eggs collected the second.  Kim Byrne has filed the necessary report with US Fish and Wildlife.


Jim Donahue has been in contact with Roger. Al will not be able to accompany him on the day of the weed treatment.  Jim has volunteered to assist.


The DNR has recently conducted a fish count. There are no results available.


Building Committee:


Due to the fact that there was no action taken by the Lake Diane Property Owners Association within a ten year period, the Hillsdale Court sided with the Duquette’s on the travel trailer suit. There is a statute of limitations of ten years to bring a non-compliant property owner into compliance with their deed restrictions.  Item 3 of the deed restrictions for the East Ten Acre subdivision states that “A travel trailer or motor home not in excess of 8 ft. X 40 ft. may be occupied on the premises during the summer months of the four years following purchase only.”  Duquettes purchased their property fourteen plus years ago, and immediately placed their travel trailer on their lot.  Therefore, they will be allowed to keep the travel trailer on the premises.  However, if the current travel trailer is removed from the lot, Duquette’s will not be permitted to return it, or replace it with another travel trailer.  Al will contact the county health department to address concerns regarding sewer and sanitation issues.


In order to bring non-compliant property owners into compliance, Jim will monitor travel trailers, then Lake Diane Property Owners Association will proceed as necessary. This action is a direct result of the majority of the Lake Diane property owners request to remove travel trailers.


Bob Pitzen reported that the Massey’s and the Southworth’s are interested in purchasing the Lake Diane park located on Jay Bay. Bob was advised to relay to them that the only way the park can be sold is if 51% of the Lake Diane property owners agree to the sale.  


Dan Fleck has plans to submit application to build a house with an attached storage facility on his lot on Horn Drive.
