Tim Schroeder discussed a website posting request that had been made by the SWMO and asked for a volunteer to assist with submitting information to Bevcomm to post on the website. Amy volunteered to do so and will be going forward. After some follow-up discussion it was also decided that the website could use some freshening up. Amy to look at options to do so and will report back to the board accordingly. Pam also volunteered to help Amy in this process.
 
Tim also advised that 2019 applying with the new chemical treatment called Sonar had begun. Sonar is a different type of treatment than Aquathol and the entire lake is being treated. Dave brought up the fact that PLM did not place any yard signs on shoreline properties to advise the owner of the activity. Tim Schroeder responded indicating, per Melissa, the notifications were to occur at both landings as well as the website. Tim is going to check and see if this is acceptable per the terms of the county’s agreement with PLM and report back.
