Discussion was held about closing boat access on Green Lake.  B. Schemel and T. Frazee visited with Green Lake Town Board members and Irving Town Board Members about closing their boat access, or if not closing them to limit the hours of operation.   R. Schneider and T. Frazee talked with the Kandiyohi County Commissioners about some type of cooperation of setting hours of their Boat access on Green Lake.  With the two townships, plus County Commissioners nobody wishes to be the first to limit Boat Access on Green Lake.   The Board feels we started working on this one year ago, we should continue to see what may be done    T. Frazee showed the Star Tribune of Friday, 22 June which the City of Minneapolis Park leaders will restrict boat access to Minneapolis lakes.

Discussion was held  about A.I. S.!   Where we have been, where we are able to go.   On the 4th of July the DNR will have a power unit, self contained to wash  boats, which need to be,  before they enter Green Lake.   T. Frazee has contacted Kandiyohi County Sheriff"s office to be within the boat access area during the day, of which Sheriff Hartog stated a Deputy would be "in and out" of the area.   The DNR will also have their unit on Sunday, 07 July 2012 to power wash "suspected" boats.

The DNR will be at the main boat access in Spicer on July 13, 14, and 15 to power wash any/all sail boats during  the Bald Eagle Sailing Club on Green Lake.  Sail boats will be power washed during these three days.

On Saturday, 14 July 2012, the third Bass Fishing Contest will be held.  The DNR will also power wash any "suspected" boat at that time.   Discussion was held about having the Spicer DNR unit power wash any boats during "pre fishing" time.   T. Frazee will check with the local authorities to see if we may use their unit for power washing during pre-fishing tournaments.   Discussion was held about finding "volunteers" to assist in power washing of boats.   After discussion, motion by J. Duininck, seconded by G. Holmstrom  to allocate up to $1,000.00 to hire people to power wash boats at the fee of $10.00 per hour.  This would be for two people working together,  Time of work would be set by DNR and T. Frazee.   Motion carried.

T. Frazee presented information about the Green Lake "Flood Plain" that any person who purchased land within this area, may need insurance from their lender before any approval is made.   A map of the Flood Plain was given to each Board Member.

Discussion was held about the Annual Meeting, both Pro and Con  as we have set the meeting date for Saturday, 15 June 2013, at the Green Lake Bible Camp.   Breakfast will be served at 8:15 a. m. with the Annual Meeting to begin at 9:00 a. m. lasting no more than one hour.
