Sheila reports that the current lake level is 8.4 having gone up from 8.3. Justin reported that he had not been down for a
week due to time restraints. Sheila has reminded him that he needs to be down there at least three times a week to maintain
Rich Prange noted that the deceiver had been pulled from dam #3. Sheila said that Darrell reported that after a couple modifications
that he found the deceiver was not working and was harder to clean and maintain so he removed it. He never did place one on
the other dams as he was trying to work with and modify on dam #3 as model.
- Gary Beyersdorf thought we had a contract with Darrell for the deceivers, but the Board informed him there was no
contract. We had agreed to try the deceivers. Darrell has charged nothing for time or material for the deceivers.
Jeff feels that having one or two employees does not cut it. He feels that the use of volunteer crews to go down is critical.
This time of year we seem to always have trouble with the employees. Are we not paying enough or is there just a problem with
work ethic? We need to find someone to do it welL
Gary Beyersdorf comments:
ago when adjudication of the lake was discussed, 6.9 was the agreed upoJ;llake level.
He says that he has lost 25 feet off the front of his property.
No hope for sewer
Nothing working like it is supposed to
Mike Kanyer said that he and Debbie had gone downstream and noticed that there was a log at
dam #2 that looked as though it were possibly being used as a "plug". Sheila will check with Justin on that.
It was noted that the lake level can only go down so far as there is bedrock under the bridge and that flowing water over
that bedrock is necessary for the health of the lake.
Sheila Pachemegg the hydrogeologist will be our on Wed the 13th @ 10 to take a walkabout on the Stimson property.
Jeff asked if the letters requesting annexation have gone out yet. Sheila reports that she will be going to the assessor's
office in the morning to find out property owners and addresses.
Question was asked regarding the Stimson property. Since the aereage is much more than wc need if we could sell some of it
as surplus? That would depend on the research done as to the suitability ofthc property and how much we would need. We could
possibly be able to sell off the excess to recoup some of the cost.
Is there any way to put the purchase of the property on a bond issue. Yes, but that might take longer that actually putting
the cost into the project loan. To be placed on this fall's ballot, it would need to be submitted by the 12th of
August. The 160 acres and lagoon system are truly only feasible if going with a whole lake treatment so would be more economically
feasible to put its cost into the financing package vs. a separate bond issue.
Discussion was had as to how to determine a price per acre offer for the Stimson property . We will try to get market appraisals
from two realtors, Mary Ann Jones and Dick Bockemuehl.
- It was suggested that some type of memorial be put at the Myers/Harter Sanctuary in Jan's honor. Sheila will check
Gary Beyersdorf feels that the Board has not made enough decisions for the people to support a whole lake sewer system. He
will not support a "blank check". He feels the Board needs to be making policy decisions now .
There will be one more informational meeting on the 30th for residents to come
ask questions on the sewerlLID issues.
