Peters summarized the proposed Phosphorus Initiative efforts to be conducted in cooperation with the Geneva Lake Conservancy. Discussion followed on the Healthy Lakes grant sponsorship. Because of the liability of maintaining the practices for ten years, the possibilities of the Agency co-sponsoring with another group was discussed. It was suggested to have Peters look for a co-sponsor.
There was discussion of the Button’s Bay Lodge, it’s movement through the Town Plan Committee, the Town Board, and its status before the County. Peters was directed to attend the May 24th hearing and comment on impacts upon the lake and if all requested information on wetland delineation, sewer, impervious areas, storm water management, boats, piers, deed restriction, are addressed.
Peters informed the board that Valerie Jackson has been hired as the summer employee and will not be an intern. A copy of her resume was passed around.
The updating of the web page was discussed. Rather than hire a new webmaster, Peters suggested that they work with the present person who does our webpage and using WordPress and Valarie’s skills as a graphic designer who has done webpages. There was board consensus.
A meeting on the future of Yerkes will be held at the W. Bay high School on May 18th at 5:30 pm.
Peters has a meeting with next week with a tax code attorney and investments specialist to consider changes to his SEP.
There was extensive discussion on two landowners’ differences in the Town of Linn. Matters of runoff and tiling were discussed. One land owner has asked if the GLEA would draft a letter of its opinion on the matter. The Board felt that the GLEA should stay out of the matter other than to offer some advice.
The proposed Hunt Club/Shooting range in Linn near Zenda was out of the watershed and thus GLEA should not get involved.
Commissioner’s Report: L. Lundberg discussed his efforts to remove lesser celandine in Cedar Point.
Next scheduled meeting in June 21, 2018.
Motion to adjourn by J. Lovell. At 8:30 pm.
These minutes were recorded and prepared by T. Peters.
