Cedar Lake Improvement District (CLID) Meeting Minutes held on May 13, 2020, 6:30-8:00 pm via Zoom web platform due to COVID 19.
NOTE: The April meeting was not recorded as it was moved from the Library to a Zoom check in meeting due to COVID19 with no significant discussion so notes were not taken
Attendees: Dave Nielsen, Joel Larsen, Tim Schroeder, Paul Hoyt, Amy Rude, Pam Caselius and Tim Singleton
-Reviewed Facebook site and updates to it
-Board Member renewals
-Annual Meeting prep
Tim Singleton presented treasurer’s report no major expenses were incurred.
Pam updated the group on the Facebook site and there was discussion around what should be included and what should not be included. It is up and operating and Pam is open to new ideas to improve and enhance as anyone sees fit. The goal is to keep it current with a focus on areas that the CLID is responsible for.
Tim Schroeder advised that both he and Tim Singleton had terms that were expired. Since there was no annual meeting to vote on their renewal this year and the board had no one looking to join, it was unanimously decided they both would both serve for another 3 years in their respective roles.
Tim Schroeder provided some added information on the annual meeting. Due to COVID 19, Dave and Joel had looked into conducting an online meeting and it was determined there was too much technical effort required to substantiate the benefit. After much discussion it was determined that a presentation for the annual meeting would be completed by June 1st and available for all to view on the website. Tim Schroeder is leading the effort to complete.
Tim Schroeder also brought up prepping for the levy renewal vote in 2021 and that the board needed to make sure we were ready to accommodate. Dave will bring the 2012 file to the September meeting to review how the process worked then and Tim Schroeder is going to check with the county to determine what is required to do so today.
Joel advised that the board was ready to recognize Laker’s Sanitation for their assistance with the winter lake clean-up. Dave and Joel are going to meet with them in the next week to present an award to them and thank them for their help with the program.
Amy motioned to adjourn seconded by Paul.
Next board meeting set for September 14th at 7 pm at the New Prague Fire Station with Zoom as a backup plan should COVID still be a concern.
