Minutes to June 1 meeting approved for publication with corrections.


Lee Sundmark, Hutchinson Fisheries – met with the board to review the LVMP we submitted for approving variances for invasive species treatments.  Lee stated he could approve as submitted by us but would like to see some changes.  He has made notes on the form that should be changed.  He talked about this being an ok short form (he could approve), but LWIA should look at doing a LVMP long form.  He provided us with an example of one he is working on with Spring Lake in Dassel.  He would like to see this document (LVMP), reflect more of the history, lake description, watershed information, vegetation surveys ( with details of what type of survey, when done, who did the survey, and pictures if there are any), also a complete history of on and off shore permitting that has been done on Lake Washington along with maps of treated areas.  Steve Ullom will work on getting additional information Lee requested and  take the information Lee gave us and add/modify the LVMP for Lee and Joe’s approval.
