Motion: To approve the September minutes made by Dawn Rosa; 2nded by Kathleen Zymerman; carried
Calendars – Donna O’Krafka offered to make a 2019 calendar. She was hoping that they would be a bigger seller. The area reps need to sell more.
Township Grant – Art Zymerman sent a letter but the township office mailing address changed but Karen Landry contacted him and all is well …...we are on the budget list for review
Dredging – Dave Taliano
All is very well with more mud than in Mitten Bay…...it is dense and massive…. the dredge gets stuck often because of so much mud. Wind can be a problem and blow dredge toward rocks at small islands.
The GRCA and MNR permits need to be renewed…. the board needs to decide what to do …the MNR permit will be costly as Stan Denhoed needs to get an engineer approval……do not know if MNR will have new requirements
Northshore must be done in 2019 and permits will be necessary
The board will prepare a decision for the permits at the November meeting.
Stan Denhoed or Dave Taliano needs to contact MNR to ascertain their requirements for 2019 permit so that we know if he can copy & paste current permit which will be less money for Stan to do.
Treasurer Report – Lorne Wallace
Lorne assembled a donor list with Larry Hackbart’s help to recognize donors from the Home Tour boats.
HST refund money was received.
Bottomline: PLCA needs to raise money because of a deficit. Lorne asked if an Eblast could ask for money and suggested that any area rep who was uncomfortable asking residents for money to call him and he would help…...reps need to have a conversation with residents
Fundraising – Donna McKenna
Home Tour – 5 homes are good for the tour with Klager Island as a possible 6th stop.
Valentine Show –
Website – Donna O’Krafka
Donna introduces Meredith Wolf as a volunteer to takeover the website. The board accepted.
Rookie of the Year Award – Lorne Wallace suggested initiating this award to go with the Harry Gingrich Award.
University Involvement – Lorne Wallace suggested that a board member take this on to get universities involved to do research and data collecting for the lake. Jaime McClintock volunteered to do so …...send her data already recorded.
Adjourned at 9:30 pm.
