Treasurer's Report
September Financial Report

Treasurer Meyer said that the loan balance will remain the same until July 1 2007. Replying to two questions from last month, Treasurer Meyer said that the interest on the money market is 1% and .55% on the checking account. The CDs which were taken out in increments of $10,000 are as follows:

13 month ($20,000) 5.25%

6 month ($20,000) 4.140%

3 month ($30,000) 3.44%

These are kept in the safety deposit box at the bank.

President Sansone asked for a motion to accept the Treasurers report, motion made by Joe Hejnal seconded by Kevin Seelbach. Motion passed.

The following bills were presented:

House Springs 6,884.81

McLaren — grading 5,140.00

County Clerk - Nov 7 election 502.95

Grass Seed for lakefront 510.39

Audit 200.00

Treasurer Meyer said the audit was available for inspection. All of our insurances had been paid except the quarterly which will be $3,000 more. Forty-one of the 2006/2007 assessments are still outstanding. These homeowners will be encouraged to pay prior to being sent to the attorney when interest would be added.

Kevin Seelbach made a motion to pay the bills, seconded by Joe Hejnal. Motion passed.

Jan Hunnicutt asked when the grading was done. This was carried out in September when rock was also placed to protect from erosion.
Kathy Hopfer questioned the insurance for the TIA. Ms. Meyer responded that she would let Kathy know what their portion was. However, due to the fact that our agent had started his own business, the insurances were put out to bid. We received the same insurance coverage as last year and saved $1,000 over last year.

The interest on the loan is at 5%. It was questioned as to why we did not use the CD money to pay this off. The special assessment money can only go to the loan.

We could not pay off the loan from our running budget.

Kevin Seelbach reported on the following:

The dam has been cut. Unfortunately a Lowes delivery truck went into the new dirt at the lakefront. Lowes is sending a landscaping crew to repair this. The bobcat needs its 50 hour service. The service man will come to the lake to do this. The old Dodge truck was sold. If anyone is interested in any of the other old vehicles please contact Ron or Kevin.

Old Business:

Kalin — A17-18 said that it had been two months since they had complained that their next door neighbors dock was 6" over on their property. Larry Kimmel said that Mr. Blaha had cut the dock at an angle so that it was no longer over their property. Apparently the dock had been at its present size for 4 or 5 years. After a heated discussion concerning the size of docks and permission being granted for alterations by prior boards, Mrs. Kahn was asked what solution she wanted — she wanted the dock removed. She asked for a copy of the regulations — the old and new regulations are posted on the web site. Mr. Blaha will be contacted again to clarify.

Other wrong sized docks were discussed and the fact that people put up docks that are not to regulation. On a statement from the floor that the Board not allow this, Larry Kimmel said that if more volunteers were available to help police the lake perhaps items would not slip thru the cracks. After a heated discussion from the floor, President Sansone said that many homeowners come to the Board expecting the Board to fight their battles with their neighbors.

Unfortunately some things come up that the Board is asked to make a decision that is not under the jurisdiction of the Board. The only solution is for the homeowners to go to court on their own.

It was noted that someone is driving on the newly rocked parking lot. If you know who this is please contact Joe Hejnal.


The following activities were reported.

Teenage Halloween bonfire Saturday October21 — 8-10 pm. Young Children Halloween party Friday October27 — 6-8 pm. Adult Halloween party Saturday October28 — 8 to midnight. Proceeds from the adult party will go to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.

On the application for the use of the building, it states that an LTIA approved guard must be on the premises for the entire period of the party. This was in effect approximately 10 years ago and $35 was charged for his service. In future Larry Kimmel or the guard should be notified so that the guard can be there.

Mary Leiweke said that Lake Bono-Del had been invited to attend the sewer meeting following the Board Meeting. Motion made by Kevin Seelbach, seconded by Larry Kimmel to adjourn. Motion carried.
Meeting concluded at 7:30 p.m.

Respectfully submitted,

Pat Harting
