VII. Presidents Report
a) 1980’s project-looking to improve water quality all the way to clear lake, lake Betsy etc.
b) Letter that was sent out was very confusing, stated no cost, but then said would be assessed. Dennis (CRWD) spoke on
the confusion of the letter. No additional cost to project. Operation & maintenance cost $68,230 this is divided amongst 1,260
parcels. 80% paid by association all lakes will pay same assessment cost. (The cost will be brought up at the next water
meeting)The 1980 project is different from milfoil project there will be a hearing on 9/8 for the milfoil project last assessment
was done in 2006.
c) Bogs (Kampa) Using part of money from O&M fund. The bog fund was assessed in 1984. Currently there is $1,700 left in
the fund. DNR pays for half when the bogs hit damn. The Bog fund will eventually be funded by the general fund when the
current funds run out. Any thing that hits the bridge the county picks up the cost. A big “Thank You” to Bob Young for hauling
off bogs at no charge to the association.
d) Milfoil-will be treating the same areas as we have for the past 3 years. We will treat where we get permission to treat. DNR
has to approve that milfoil is present. We can do 6 acres, 1.2 acres is saved for commercial. We have to stay 20ft away from
Lilly pads. We currently use 24D and will continue to stay with this product. 2011 there will be no fee for milfoil or curly leaf
treatment. We may treat some new areas next year. Every 5 yrs have to vote to continue milfoil treatment. Motion to continue
milfoil treatment was approved for 2011 to 2015.
