Cedar Lake Improvement District meeting notes from October 22, 2015 from 6:30 – 8 pm at the New Prague Public Library

Attendees: Marie Jaeger, Sam Dresow, Jon Nordrum and Theresa Juhl

Agenda Items for discussed:

  • Approval of September’s minutes
  • Treasurer’s Report
  • Carp radio tagging Study
  • Purchase of Office Supplies
  • Funding for Postage
  • Porta Potties for Lake Winter Users

Marie brought the meeting to order and made a motion to accept September’s minutes, Theresa seconded.

Marie reviewed income and expenses provided by Dave for September and provided bank statements for the board’s records. A copy was given to Theresa for filing with board records. There was one credit for the interest earned on the savings account. There was one debit for Market Crosshairs for website hosting fee.

Marie contacted Maggie of Prior Lake/Spring Lake Watershed District regarding their radio-tagging of carp and tracking their movement in those two lakes. Maggie mentioned that they planned to have 15 tagged this fall and 15 in the spring by a hired contractor. She will let us know when the fall tagging is scheduled so any of the board members who are interested could possibly attend and observe. Marie also followed up with Melissa Bokman of SWMO for an update on the proposal for carp tagging on Cedar Lake. That bidding process has been postponed until 2016.

Theresa presented a few options for filing cabinets for CLID historical and current documents, Jon motioned to approve spending up to $450 on office supplies and filing cabinet and Marie seconded. Sam mentioned he would look into used equipment, which may be more cost effective.

Sam spoke with the DNR about providing porta potties at the access points in the winter for ice fishermen to decrease amount of human waste left on the lake over the winter. He was told there were no dollars budgeted for this year. Sam will find out what the DNR cost is and also obtain a separate quote from private companies in order for the board to consider possibly having them available. He will also check into current plowing arrangements at the access points so that they will be sure to be accessible for weekly cleaning.

Dave has requested to have $50 cash on hand to spend on postage and envelopes for CLID business. Marie made a motion to approve and Sam seconded.

The next board meeting will be held Tuesday, November 10, 2015 at the New Prague Library from 6:30-8:00 p.m.
