Janet Hirsch reported that the Finance Committee has produced the year to date financial statement. Extra copies are available. She also reported that as long as McLaren is paid at the $10,000 monthly amount, we should be financially ok until June and then the assessments will begin to come in July.
Larry Kimmel said that he had no incidents to report.
Janet Hirsch reported that 352 copies of the newsletter had been sent out. The upcoming newsletter will have an earlier deadline of April 6th.
Joe Hejnal reported the following requests for building permits:
Clarence Cobb: (I79-80) - Request to cover patio which is attached to his garage. This will be shingled.
Jim Gray: (F13) - Request to change an "L" shaped dock into two separate docks so he can put his pontoon between them. Approval of his neighbors will be required prior to the Board giving their approval.
Dierzbicki: (L9-11) - Replace wooden dock with concrete one.
Mills: (G24-25) _ Request to replace seaswall and turn parallel dock perpendicular to sea wall. The dock is grandfathered in but Larry will inspect prior to approval.
We received a complaint regarding the modular block seawall construction at H8-10 that it was extending 6' further into the lake. Joe Hejnal said that he has already inspected the footings and they looked correct but he would go and inspect this again as it could just look as if it is out further than it s really is depending on where you view it.
A letter will be sent to Cobb to move the piles of soil in his front yard. Numerous complaints have been received.
Motion made by Janet Hirsch, seconded by Joe Hejnal to approve the three permits. Motion carried.
President Sansone said that with all the use that the snowplow had received this winter, we now need to replace it. If anyone knows of a plow being available please contact Ron. The bucket on the Bobcat also is beginning to get worn out from scrapping the mud off the road.
Ron reported that the snow removal went very well especially in view of the amount of snow we have received. Unfortunately we had to buy a lot of salt. Our final shipment of salt should be coming this week. More salt will be requested next year and any remaining salt will be covered over the summer.
Nothing to report about the web site.
See Rich Hirsch's separate report.

Janet Hirsch reported on the special election on March 29th. She encouraged all home owners and lot owners to vote. This is for a special $1 assessment to be used strictly to pay off the loan for the repair of the dam. She said that silt removal is being paid for with the regular assessments. President Sansone said that numerous residents have expressed their approval at the progress with the silt removal and hoped that the lake would pass the election to pay for the dam repair. He said that a lot has been accomplished in the last 4 years due to the encouragement of the lake property owners.
Janet also reported that 17 dock owners, along the north side of the lake who benefited personally from the silt removal had been sent invoices for the removal of silt around their docks.
There being no further business, Larry Kimmel made a motion, seconded by Janet Hirsch to adjourn. Motion carried. The meeting ended at 7:21 p.m.
