to place at areas that are treated.   The DNR will be on Green Lake on Tuesday, 11 September 2007, to look at the areas for the positive work of the chemical treatment.  A report will be coming from them, later.

 

NEW BUSINESS:

Discussion was held asking property owners not to feed geese during the summer months, as they will continue to return to the same area each year.
