Dave presented April's all owner meeting minutes with all suggested edits. Lowell made a motion to approve and Marie seconded. The motion passed unanimously.

Mike was absent so Marie presented the treasurer's report and all paid bills since last board meeting were reviewed.

Marie provided a quick review of the annual meeting on April 22, 2014 at St. Patrick's Social Hall. It was suggested and agreed that a sign-up sheet should be placed at entrance to future meetings for attendees to sign. .Lowell made a suggestion that we make a presentation copy of the agenda available to all owners. It was agreed upon that Dave would update the annual meeting notes to advise a copy would be available to any owner who requested it via the email box on the website.

Brad provided an update on the Carp Kabob Tournament that it is still scheduled for May 16-17 with back-up of June 6-7 if the weather doesn't accommodate our first option. Brad also advised that he had to provide proof of insurance to get the permit approved by the Scott County Sheriff's Department which was done. Brad indicated that 9 boats were now registered out of the 10 total slots. Participant check-in was scheduled for Friday night at 9 pm at the east public launch.

Marie recommended and it was agreed that board members should respond that they received other board member’s emails regarding board business.

Marie asked if anyone had seen any presence of curly leaf yet so we could notify Melissa of Scott County Watershed Management. No one had yet seen any yet this spring.

Brad brought up carp sightings. To date there have been no signs from anyone of carp schools in the lake yet this spring.

Lowell asked about updating some sections of the website. Marie agreed that we needed to update the “Progress of Projects” section. She will complete a draft for review by board members before posting.

It was agreed upon that with the new CLID leadership would come a change of duties for board members. Theresa agreed to take over the role of Secretary effective June 2014 from Dave with Dave backing up Theresa when she was not able to attend. Brad agreed to take over the role of carp control from Mike also effective June 2014 since Mike has the responsibilities as Treasurer. Gary agreed to take on the role of Winter Lake Clean-up Coordinator effective June 2014 from Brad. Marie made a motion to approve the changes and Theresa seconded it. The motion passed unanimously.

Dave brought all files he had stored at his home to give to Theresa to add to the files she had so all CLID files are now in one place. Theresa is going to sort and store them for the CLID.

Marie suggested that we might try and obtain some more history on Cedar Lake to add to the website. Brad agreed to reach out to the Scott County Historical Society to see what we could obtain from them.

Next meeting is June 10, 2014 with no meetings in July, August and December due to vacation schedules and little action typically required by the board on projects during these months.
