Kim Winter updated us on the taxation levies Lake Jenny is working on and could possibly be a means for Lake Washington to access a fair share to all property owners.

Gary Christianson reported on a District Milfoil Meeting sponsored by Sea Proest a company that has a means for applying chemicals at a rate of 20,000 acres in 10 hours. This would involve using Renovate (similar to 24D) the would kill all vegetation but not harm humans or wildlife.

The board will explore Publishing names of paid members beginning next year.

Kim W. will check with County Commisioners regarding the $2500 they pledged to Lake Washington for milfoil treatments, which we did not have to use this year.
