The Board approved the meeting dates for 2014/2015 year which will be listed in the Green Lake

Breeze and also within our web page. Motion by G. Holmstrom, seconded by S. Linder for approval. Motion carried.

During the 2013-2014 year the Board discussed changing the name of Green Lake Property Owners Association. This was discussed at the Annual meeting, also. The Board felt the change of the name would be inclusive of all people within Green Lake and outside of the lake. After discussion, the

Board decided to "table" the idea, remaining with the Green Lake Property Owners Association.

T. Frazee reminded the Board that a new directory will be printed in 2015/2016 year. This directory is part of your dues statement with copies given only to those with membership paid next spring.

The GLPOA asked that people living within Green Lake would contact the secretary with any changes to their address, if they sold their home, or if they know of any new home owners on the lake.

Discussion was given for going to "Digital or Paper" copy for the Green Lake Breeze beginning in June 2015 year. T. Frazee will meet with the Web Designer to look at different formats for completing application for membership, getting correct email address. This information will be given to the Board at the next meeting. It was explained that the entire Green Lake Breeze is on our web site for viewing.

T. Frazee explained to the board members of the Kandiyohi County AIS Task Force, of which he is a member. The Tax Bill of 2014, added a program of $10 million dollars to Counties of the State of Minnesota to fight A.I.S. The dollars to counties are based upon boat access and trailer parking. In Kandiyohi County, the dollar amount will be $128,469 per year. The Board discussed areas of which we would consider to make application for this money. It may be used for treatment of Eurasian Water Milfoil along with the continued education/workings against Zebra Mussels.

Motion by B. Schweitzer, second by T. Johnson that the Green Lake Board retain Bruce Kleven as our Lobbyist in St. Paul on a retainer basis of not to exceed $5,000.00 for the 2015 Legislative session. Motion carried.

Discussion was held about the Annual Meeting, the Pros and Cons of the total. The Board agreed to continue to schedule the breakfast at the Annual Meeting. The Board was thankful that Sheriff Hartog was invited to speak of the high water, NO WAKE ZONE on Green Lake.

Motion by S. Linder, seconded by B. Schweitzer to adjourn the meeting. Motion carried.
