                        As stated above – letter mailed to property owners. Ron Croteau made a request to the board to be reimbursed a total of $274.89 for postage, envelopes, and mailing labels for annual meeting letter.

Motion made and seconded to approve reimbursement. Motion passed. Discussion was held on County report of $47k of tax activity for CLID in May – no funds were deposited however – Ron Croteau to follow-up.


2.       Lake Plan

                  Discussion held on treatment proposals and areas of treatment. Mike Bury has submitted a grant request for approximately 35.4 acres on three polygons. Total treatment area includes 72.5 acres, including the area near the County Park. Treatment providers were discussed, and it was determined that Professional Lake Management (PLM) was the only bidder that met all the requirements of the bid, including guarantee clause. The cost would be $364 per acre with Renovate (sp). 

                  A motion was made and seconded to approve PLM for the initial treatment of the 72.5 acres. Motion passed. Subsequent treatments are still being reviewed based on spotter team reports, and both PLM & Lake Restoration will be considered based on areas to be treated, and first treatment results.

Other:  Subsequent to the June 10th meeting, Mike Bury advised that as part of the treatment approval, the DNR required a $750 payment for permit fees to process our request, which Mike had inadvertently forgotten to include in the June 10th meeting.  Ron Croteau agreed to fund the $750 and Mike Bury sent out an electronic motion to approve reimbursement of this $750 to Ron, and to add this to the June 10th meeting minutes. The motion was seconded, and passed electronically via e-mail.

Respectfully submitted,
