Clarity report: The Big Lake is at 9 feet and the Little Lake at 18 feet.

Program: Jeff Forester from Minnesota Lakes and Waters was the featured speaker. Jeff stressed the importance of protecting the quality of our water. Docks, boats and boat lifts that are moved from lake to lake are major contributors to the spread of invasive species.

Please be mindful of this and do not allow friends or renters to bring in their boats until they have been thoroughly cleaned or out of the water for several weeks. Jeff said that an infection of invasive species can lower property values by up to 30 percent. Since all of the lakes around the Twin Cities are infected, any boats coming from that area are a real risk.Our lakes are currently clean. Let’s keep them that way.

Motion was made and seconded to adjourn at 11:00. Motion carried.

Respectfully Submitted,
