PIER SPRAYING -Larry Charles volunteered to organize the pier spraying this year. Barkley checked with several businesses regarding their fee. He did not think residents would be willing to pay over $100.00 each for the spraying. He also checked pier areas around the lake and does not see any navigational issues. Therefore, there is no need to request a permit this year.

CORRESPONDENCE – Barkley received an e-mail from Rose Hames and Dennis Leis, address on Little Green Lake Road stating that about 40 dead fish washed up on their shore.

OTHER BUSINESS THAT COMES BEFORE THE BOARD – Barkley stated that Jeff and Dawn Franke collected 125 signatures requesting the internet service of Bug Tussel. The company will review the area to set up a tower. The contract with Advanced Disposal expires in June 2018. Braun will contact Waste Management for a bid. If we do not do anything with the contract it will auto renew and could possibly have an increase in charges. Donations at the public landings are down. The District will not get their half of the donations until December. Discussion on mandatory fees at the landings. Mehn will contact the County Sheriff regarding patrolling the landing similar to Big Green Lake landings.
