Old Business:

Cammy and Ken K. met with Steve Hansen, CPA, regarding IRS reports we need to be filing.  It looks like we only need to report this year.  They will meet with him again to get this done and look have having this firm continue this service on a yearly basis.  Cammy will get the information they need for reporting.  Board approved going forward with pursuing 501(c)3 non profit status.

Thank you to John for another great job with the food for the Annual Meeting. 
Board approved moving money ($90,000) in the CD to a Business Account at ING.  She will double check to see they are FDIC.

New Business:
EXOTIC SPECIES: Chip Welling announced a new grant program for partial lake control of EWM and it looks like it fits us well.  Bill will check this out and make an application.  He will check with Patrick about permit application.  He understands it is for 99 acres.

Publisher of Hutchinson Leader is publishing a full color magazine (DOCKSIDE) with facts about area lakes and other information.  This will be a free magazine sent to all people with lake places.  They want our mailing list: the Board chose to not share this information at this time.

COMMUNICATIONS COMMITTEE: Rick has a new list of emails entered in our system.  He will send new list to Mike Engel with Jenna’s updated information. Special note do not include membership notice in the fall newsletter, seems to confuse some. 

NEW BOARD MEMBERS: Lyle Walker has had a place on the lake since 1975.  They rebuilt 11 years ago and moved out to the lake.   Steve Kjell, his family has been on Lake Washington since 1953.

On a unanimous voice vote the Board approved the following:
President – Dennis Westendorp;  Vice President – Ken Khler;
Treasurer – Cammy Moses;  Secretary – Steve Ullom;  Membership Chair – Jenna O’Brien

John Schroers (Mn. Legacy Caucus Chair) and Gary Leaf (Sportsmen for Change) presented a slide show on the Lessard Outdoor Heritage Amendment and it Council.  This tax begins on July 1, 2009.  The monies from this amendment will be available Aug. 2009.  The Lessard Council takes requests and passes on their recommendations to the Legislature for approval.  There should be money available through this fund for lakes to use for projects.
