Development of a long range plan for the lakes:  Working with Onterra for a management plan.  Whole lake management survey could be the next step.  We have already done a weed study.  An idea of a wet land restoration –maintain.  Need to contact Onterra of cost of a five year management plan.  Onterra will do grants from now on.  They are more knowledgeable with grants.  Jay will send out an e-mail for meeting dates with Onterra.

New Signage at boat landings: Listing fines, Do’s and Don’ts Lake rules.  Ann will take pictures of the wake rules for Maiden Lake.

New Lakewood Conservation Warden:  Lee Posusta.  He would like to attend one of our meetings.  His e-mail is  Lee.Posusta@wisconsin.gov.

Buoys:  The buoys used for the swim area are in bad shape.  The question was brought up if we should buy them and give to them to the fire department.  Pat Porubcan stated maybe we should contact the fire department and see if they would split the cost.

No wake ordinance: DNR has true enforcement. Town board can also write tickets:  $350/violation.

Commissioner Hogan motioned for the election of all three, It was seconded by Commissioner Moore. All were in favor.

*Kris Becher (member) stated her son Christopher Becher was interested in having the district meetings on webinar. It was talked about and a decision was made. The cost of equipment would be too much for the number of people that would actually use it.  Meeting adjourn at 10:00.
