For the 2006 year, a new directory will be printed which will cost near the $3,000.00 mark, so dues for 2006.-2007 year will be increased.



B. Halgren has been in contact with TeryJon, Inc., to spray the lake some time near Memorial Day depending upon the growth of the leaves.   The cost will be about the same as 2004 year which $7,500.00.   The committee will notify the local radio stations plus the West Central Tribune prior to the date of spraying.  B. Halgren and T. Frazee will meet with the Spicer City Council, also.

The variance to increase the slips at Skyline Estates has been turned down, but a law suit against Kandiyohi County is forthcoming over this.

Lake Management:

G. Broman passed out a four page sheet showing the Total Phosphorus Concentrations in streams and lakes for the past two years.  Also handed out was the Green Lake Partnerships Goals in reduction of Phosphate.

G. Broman showed a handbook which the Partnership would like to distribute to all members of the watershed area.  Broman is working with the DNR to assist in printing 4,000 books at a cost of $10,000.00.  Kari Haug will assist in the editor"s work of the book.

J. Nelson reported that the lakes/stream water testing will begin in late May or early June.   Her volunteers are ready to begin work again.

G. Broman stated to the Board that G. Anderson has been appointed to the Kandiyohi County Planning Board.


D. Baken reported that at the last GLSSWD Board meeting the report shows that water leakage with the new system  around Green Lake has between 30- 39 percent leakage.  The Board will begin monitoring for these leaks in 2006.

The discussion was held of the second tier development of being assessed full or non.  The GLSSWD stated all garages (buildings) with wate r/sewer hooks will be assessed full.

Discussion was held about upcoming meetings with Lake Florida, Lake Calhoun, Diamond Lake and Nest Lake with the sewer system.  A meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, 11 May with Nest Lake people.



J. Peterson stated that Kandiyohi County has agreed NOT to purchase a sweeper for the Green Lake area.  The agreement is that Kandiyohi County will sweep the roads eight (8) times during the summer period.



J. Pederson asked for discussion about the fishing of Green Lake being walleye vs. Bass.

J. Pederson stated this should be an ecological issue of equal rather than one item or another.   Rather than start a committee of "Fishing" the Board felt it should be handled by the Water Quality/DNR Committee.

It was suggested that J. Pederson and G. Broman meet with the new Board of Directors of the Middle Fork Crow River Water Shed District prior to our May meeting.

Board members Jon Pederson and Jim Rieth are eligible for a second three year term.

Discussion was held about the agenda for the annual meeting.  Suggestions was for some person to talk about shore line development, Sheriff Dan Hartog, Gary Broman to talk about the Partnership, along with Skip Wright to talk about the State of Green Lake.
