Topics for Annual Meeting

Talk about what board members responsibilities.

Does everyone still want to be on the board?

We have enough board members. If a board member steps down a new board member shall be elected.

High Water/No Wake

Wright and Stearns had an “Emergency No Wake” due to high water on several lakes this spring through summer. In order to get an ordinance in place for Lake Augusta, we need to have a legal agreement between Fair Haven Township and Southside Township. When that happens both Wright County and Stearns County will be able to enforce a no wake on our lake when there is a High Water Emergency. Fair Haven Township has agreed to support this ordinance but needs to have a legal document to sign. We need to get on the Southside agenda to bring up this matter to the township and if they agree, they will need to sign the legal document as well.  

In 2012 the Lake Association voted in favor of a High Water/No Wake ordinance. There is an ordinance posted on the website from Wright County but is it in effect?

Currently, Jet Skis must stay 100’ away from docks and the shoreline; tickets can be issued  by the Sheriff’s Department Water Patrol. If boats are creating damage to the shoreline, then a ticket can be issued by the Sheriff’s Department Water Patrol.

Other Items

Other items will be addressed according to the agenda on the annual newsletter.

Meeting adjourned at 10:00 a.m., August 2, 2014
