A review of the annual meeting was discussed.  The feeling of the Board that it was an excellent meeting with the five presenters doing an outstanding job.  Concern was for the low turn out for the meeting but the Board felt that in years past the Sewer/Water Project plus the Highway 23 issue was the big concern.  Both these items are being worked upon now.  Concern was also given to notification of Lake residents when we spray for Caterpillars in the spring.   Board member Halgren has written an article for the BREEZE stating that we will spray the Wednesday prior to Memorial Day or the Wednesday following Memorial Day, weather permitting.   This information will also be distributed in the April newsletter.

Board Member G. Anderson presented an update on the storm sewer stencil program.  The Boy Scouts are at camp this week, but the program should start within the next ten days.  G. Anderson has discussed this program with the Boy Scout Troop leader.   It was suggested by Board Member B. Haug that we contact the Willmar and New London/Spicer paper for pictures and story of the project.

Past Board Member S. Peterson visited with the Board on issues of variances within the Green Lake area.   Peterson stated he would work with the next chairperson of the variance committee to assist him/her is they requested any assistance.

B. Haug suggested to the Board that we purchase a new computer for the Secretary, with the suggestion being a Laptop.  B. Haug will meet with T. Frazee to study the computer that would best suit the Board"s needs.  This information will be presented to the full Board at the August meeting.

T. Frazee presented data to the Board Members showing membership, patrol and caterpillar members for the past five years.   Also data showing the breakdown for each Township plus the city of Spicer for each of the three categories as stated in this paragraph.  Discussion was held about the fund balance of funds, needing dollars to run programs, with a question of "how much do we need."  Board member W. Halvorson stated that in order to change dues, it must be approved at the annual meeting.   For the 2004-2005 year, dues will remain as the 2003-2004 year.

T. Frazee has met with Gregg Soupir of the DNR about grants for benches on our walking path.  Chairperson G. Broman appointed Board Members T. Broman and J. Nelson to work with the grant application with Frazee.   Frazee will discuss the same with Kandiyohi County for funding purposes.

Board Chairperson G. Broman discussed the strategic plan that he would like the Boards approval for the 2003-2004 year.  G. Broman discussed his proposal of forming a new committee of the Green Lake Property Owners Association called the "Lake Management Committee."  Broman sighted the Minnesota Lakes Association (MLA) newsletter talking about Partnerships to Project Water Quality.  Zoning and planning of water awareness is a water quality issue that GLPOA should be pro-active about.   Broman stated that he has met with Spicer Mayor Bill Taylor to form a committee to have the community and the GLPOA work together.   The next step following this meeting would be to meet with county officials along with the planning and zoning commission.

The Board felt this was a great program that we should become very active in.  G. Broman felt that the past two Presidents, G. Anderson and W. Halvorson should be appointed to the committee.   Other Board members may attend meetings, also.

For the August meetings, G. Broman asked that we have a listing of positions which the GLPOA would have some decision in within Kandiyohi County.

All GLPOA meetings, from this date on, will be held in the room off the coffee shop of the Heritage Bank located on the south side of Spicer.   The next regular scheduled meeting will be Saturday, 16 August at 8:00 A. M. at Heritage Bank.

Motion by B. Halgren, seconded by D. Baken to adjourn.   Motion carried.
