Township land: The clearing of dead balsams and other trees have been completed. Large pines and maples were left. It was requested that no motorized vehicles go onto the land as small trees will be planted.
Annual meeting: The next Association meeting on Aug. 12 will be the annual meeting. A director representing the Little Lake and secretary positions will be up for election. Scott Gronseth of Pequaywan Lake First Responders will be presenting the informational program.
Renters: A lake resident expressed concerned about those who are renting their cabins out and allowing renters to launch their boats. These boats could be bringing invasive species into our lakes and endangering the quality of our lakes, which are currently free of such AIS now. Such practices are discouraged or at the very least, rental owners are asked to make sure the rental boats have been out of the water for more than a week and are thoroughly clean. Property values can be substantially lowered if lakes become infested as well as infestations negatively affecting boating, fishing and swimming.
Motion was made and seconded to adjourn at 11:00. Motion carried.
