The DNR along with a donation of land from Spicer have developed a new parking area. This area will increase the parking by "about" ten spaces. Chairperson J.

Chairperson J. Duininck reported to the Board of the Legacy Committee which included Board Members J. Duininck, S. Linder, B. Schweitzer, R. Schneider, T. Johnson, R. Schneider, and T. Frazee.

This committee will continue to meet, providing information to the membership when the plans are developed.

Discussion was held of the meeting between the Middle Fork Crow River Water Shed District and Green Lake Property Owners Association of how we would be able to monitor boats coming/going from Green Lake at boat access. Chairperson J. Duininck and T. Frazee met with the Board of Managers from the Water Shed District. After exchanging ideas, it was suggested to have a Sub Committee from the Water Shed District and the Green Lake Property Owners Association to work on the details reporting back to their boards at the September meeting. It is the feeling of the G. L. P. O. A. Board that we need to work on a monitoring program at all boat access on Green Lake. The G.L.P.O.A. would employ workers to power wash boats for 134 days, two eight hour shifts. The washing of Boats would be at the Middle Fork Crow River Water Shed District office. The power washers would cost "approximately" $40,000.00.

MOTION BY G. Holmstron, seconded by E. Roberts that the position of Patrol for 2013/2014 year be offered to Mike Behan for the salary of $2,500.00. T. Frazee will meet with Mr. Behan on the final details. Motion carried.

Discussion was held to change the name of the GREEN LAKE PROPERTY OWNERS ASSOCIATION TO GREEN LAKE ASSOCIATION as this would invite outside membership to join our organization. This was recommended by motion of B. Schweitzer, seconded by T. Johnson. This will be a study with final information in April 2014 GREEN LAKE BREEZE. Motion carried.
