Tim Schroeder provided an update on the annual meeting. He has reached out to the new New Prague Fire Chief about holding the meeting at the New Prague Fire Station but Steve was not able to give him a reply yet due to COVID. Steve is going to get back to us or Tim will check back if he doesn’t hear from Steve.
Tim Schroeder also reminded us we needed to prep for our meeting with the DNR scheduled for 1-10-2022. What do we want to cover and what do we want to focus on. After much discussion the board determined we would put a list of questions and areas of focus prior to the meeting. It was also determined Joel would be our spokesman for the meeting. After much additional discussion it was determined that the success of our treatment program needed to be measured by those that use the lake and the lakeshore owners.
Amy provided an update on our independent lake weed survey in progress, but still not completed. This plan is needed to help support our 2022 treatment plan with the DNR based on current weed growth. There was a recent change in contacts with the firm we are utilizing for our survey, Environment Laboratories Inc., thus a delay in getting the report. Amy is still trying to work with the new contact to obtain the survey as soon as possible.
Tim Singleton provided an update on the Treasurer’s Report. No activity for this month other than interest earned on funds in savings.
Pamela provided an update on the website. She met with Bevcomm and they provided her with several ideas on ways we could update and improve it. They will be attending our next meeting to present those.
The meeting adjourned via motion from Tim Schroeder and seconded by Pamela Caselius at 8:00 PM.
The next meeting date was set for Monday, February 7th, 2022 at 6:30 PM at Paul Hoyt’s home garage.
