Acting chairman Becky Harper welcomed back the lake employees Al, Butch & Wayne stating Todd would not be returning.
Dale Farwig read the Treasurer's report and it was approved unanimously by the board. Mr. Farwig stated we have made a Budget up to show each director what their particular spending allowance is and how much they have spent so far this fiscal Budget, this should allow each Director more insight on monies spent. There will not be any extra money, so many things may go undone.
Security: Gary Ryan:
Wayne is back working on Fridays & Saturdays. He responded to two calls on Aug. 9, one an assault on one neighbor by another, and a deceased resident on the North side that was ruled accidental. Wayne's police scanner allows him to be on the scene much faster than the police can be here, this has proven to be very advantageous in many instances.
Gate passes are $5.00 each, due to increased cost of cards.
Floor comments: I 27 Why is gate up on weekends? There is very little construction on Saturday or Sunday. Gary stated if there is no opposition to the gate being down all day on Sunday starting after Labor Day weekend the gate will be down all day on Sundays. He felt if he talked to the Hillsboro Postmaster about the mail lady using a pass on Saturdays we could possibly keep it down all day on Saturdays as well.
D 29 asked what about the guests that are coming to the Community House when it has been rented? Gary stated he wished there could be something we could do to help that situation. G 6 asked if a temporary number could be programmed for those guest that would expire the same day? Gary stated this could be possible.
B 37 asked if the police come out when there is a nonresident or unwelcome guest on the Lake? Gary stated that they do not mind coming out for this and they are issuing a warning ticket for first offense and second offense is a citation/fine.

Silt Report: Becky Harper
The operators have only been back to work for 6 days, dredge is running well so far and they are looking forward to finishing the season without further layoffs.
Chris Townsend stated he has observed the dredge in action, and feels that the progress is being done the only way it can to be efficient. No Matter what depth we dredge at, there will still be obstacles encountered. Both operators have different techniques, with the same results. The main body of water will not be dredged , only problem areas and coves as far it can reach.
G 12 asked if a cable was necessary for the dredge to perform? Yes, that is what pulls it along the dredging path. K 29 asked if it took two people to run the dredge? Becky replied at times it is required. K 29 also asked if the men get Medical Ins.? No employee does. B 37 stated he feels the berm is washing out in an area close to bridge and might possibly wash back into the lake. Becky stated there is a 60 ft. base and is at least 40 ft. deep.
