Halgren will write a letter to Sheriff Dan Hartog, Public Works Director Gary Danielson, and Richard Falk, Chairperson of Kandiyohi County Commissioners asking that tickets be issued rather than warnings.   Discussion was held that the majority of speeders are lake residents, but some are commercial drivers.

Terry Frazee  presented information about the bridge/walking trail to be completed prior to 01 July 2006 on the northeast corner of the lake (lake outlet).  A walking path/bridge will be constructed approximately 10 feet from the vehicle bridge.  There will be a fence/retaining wall to prevent people from fishing off the vehicle bridge as a fishing pier will be built.   The GLPOA is asking that culverts be placed that all water be discharge to the east rather than into Green Lake.   Gary Broman will be asked to work with the county/DNR about the building of this road/bridge this winter.  The project is to be completed by 01 July 2006.

Chairperson B. Halgren discussed a letter which he received from Tom Bonde about the DNR"s not reading the gauge"s as per the grant monies during the winter period.   B. Halgren has discussed this with Skip Wright of the DNR office.  This matter should be corrected.

Terry Frazee discussed the 2006 Green Lake Directory which will be published in May 2006.  Board members were asked to check their area to see if spelling is correct or if they knew of any changes in membership.   The Board agreed not to publish home address/phone numbers in the director.   The directory will be mailed to all who pay their dues of $35.00 for the 2006/2007 year.
