1.   Caterpillar

Chairperson R. Jansen stated we are not spraying a second time for worms in 2005.

M. Quale did not have a final report.

3.   Lake Management

R. Jansen reported that he, G. Broman, and T. Frazee met with the DNR on Friday, 08 July to discuss the following items: (1) carp removal at Morgandale Resort (coming from Alvig Slough), along with the carp at the outlet of the lake.

We will need a permit from the DNR to remove the carp.   A company in Iowa will take the carp for 10 cents per pound.   The DNR estimated that we would probably be looking at 10,000 pounds or cost of $1,000.00.   Will continue to study this problem.   (2)  The number of slips at the Old Mill Inn.  The DNR has been in contact with the owner about this problem, plus the sign which states that slips are for rent, (3)  number of slips at Sky Line Estates of which the county is working on, (4) milfoil on Green Lake which is becoming less, (5) a home on the lake which brought in truck loads of sand, (6) people cutting of Bulrushes around the lake.  The DNR will write a article for the August issue of the Green Lake Breeze of the importance of these Bulrushes within the lake.

Chairperson D. Baken stated the next sewer Board meeting is scheduled for Monday, 25 July. Information of the last meeting was in the Breeze.

5.   Water Quality/DNR

J. Nelson and M. Wacholz  reported that the water clarity is now at 14 feet for the Secchi disc.   Last spring it was 23 feet.   Water temperature is now at 80 degrees.

Discussion was held about people mowing their lawns, blowing the grass clippings onto the road way which may end up in Green Lake.   Discussion was held about mailing out post cards, but the consensus of the Board is that we have written three articles in the last two years about this so we will not mail out cards.   Asked people to talk to anyone who is mowing on the street to please mow the first five rounds inward.

6.   Variance

The zoning board is now hearing our thoughts and ideas for Green Lake stated Chair J. Pederson. J. Nelson, J. Duininck, and T. Frazee attended the Spicer City Council meeting last Monday evening to ask their cooperation in following the Kandiyohi County plan of one dock with 4 (four) moorings as the three townships surrounding the lake have.
