EXOTIC SPECIES: Bill reported PLM (Patrick) is applying for a permit to treat 92 acres for milfoil with the DNR.  Bill doesn’t think it will be before May 15.

FINANCE COMMITTEE: Bill C. reported 78.39 acres of milfoil were treated on June 15th. They used a liquid herbicide this year.  Bill went to St. Paul on June 12th to sign grant papers for this to happen.  Wendy at the DNR contacted him directly to facilitate awarding of the grant($18,124.00) and treatment three days later.  Bill reported treatment and water testing costs for 07-08-09 amounted to $61,186.00 with grants covering $49,703 of that.  The total treatment cost for 2009 is $35,667.45.   The state recognizes that PLM rates are very fair and competitive for this area.  The DNR believes the large areas of EWM can be avoided by boaters; therefore treatment is not an option or necessary at this time.  Bill has been trying to contact Patrick at PLM to get an update on the effectiveness of the treatment.  Bill O will check areas treated.  There was some discussion about what other lakes are doing with regards EWM treatments and management.

COMMUNICATIONS COMMITTEE: July newsletter draft has been sent out by Rick.  There is one advertiser at this time.  The newsletter will be sent to the printer as soon as Rick has all the pieces, this will be no later than July 13th.

SOCIAL COMMITTEE: Board members please come at 4:30 on August 1 to help set up.  John will have all the necessary things there.

ELECTION OF NEW OFFICERS: Ken Khler was elected President and Rick Fernstrom Vice President. LWIA still needs one more board member: Kim W. has a name, otherwise will address this issue at the picnic (Aug. 1).  The Board approved the 2009 Budget and noted it will be published in the July newsletter.

Next Meeting:
