Lake Management:

J. Nelson, Chairperson of the Lake Management Committee met at the Green Lake Bible Camp to discuss program of milfoil control for the 2008 season.   Motion by T. Broman, seconded by R. Minke that the Lake Management program be approved as follows:   Steve McComas will survey Green Lake this spring using the maps which the DNR completed last year.  The cost of this survey will be $1,500.00 of which the MFCR water shed district will pay $750.00 with the Green Lake Property Owners paying $750.00.   S. McComas informed the committee that we need to be looking at the milfoil plants to make sure they do not have the "MARLS" (calcium carbonate) attached to them.    If MARLS is found on the plants it is a bad time to treat.  We are looking to treat either in June or early July for areas of 1/4th to 1/2 acres or larger.  Not only treating those areas, but to extend the treatment to 25% larger area to make sure the chemicals reach the plant roots.  The DNR has agreed to go out to check to see effectiveness of treatment.  It is possible to survey a second time later this fall with a second treatment at that time. Motion carried.

J. Nelson also discussed the County Road 10 storm sewer program of the possible "rain gardens" to be put in.  The MFCRWSD has grant monies available of which they would pay for 75% of the grant with the home owners paying 25%.   Discussion was held of using part of the $10,000.00 gift to assist home owners with the rain garden.  Also part of the program is that the home owner must maintain the rain garden for ten (10) years.  It was decided that following the meeting, the Board would go to Park Lane Resort to look at the storm sewer running into Green Lake plus areas for possible "rain gardens.


K. TerWisscha stated no variances had come to his attention.  Discussion was also held about the "special assessment on the property tax listed as "G.L. Sewer Usage Fee."   We are being assessed for the water/wastewater treatment plant, why for a "sewer usage fee."


T. Broman reminded the Board that there is a place on the dues statement for donations to the Walleye Fishing of Green Lake.  It is a 501 C tax deductible item.



T. Broman informed the Board members of people who have contacted him about gifts/memorials for Green Lake.   The Board suggested that these people donate monies for either the Walleye Fishing or the Milfoil program.



The 2008 Green Lake Property Owners Annual meeting will be held on Friday night, 20 June 2008 at 7:00 P. M. at the Green Lake Bible Camp
