The meeting was called to order by President Lloyd Lewis at 7:10 p.m.
Treasurer’s Report – Hazel Lewis reported a current balance of
$13,290.00. Per last month’s
motions, payments were made for $300.00 for the Sheriff on Elizabeth
Lake and $500.00 for
Fireworks. Payment for lawn service was $710.00.
Secretary’s Report – Minutes of the June 29, 2017 meeting were approved.
Kathy also reported on a resident’s 101st birthday. Lloyd sent an email
to residents, and Mary
Ann received many cards, for which she was very appreciative.
Signage - Lloyd reported on the signage for informational signs
Elizabeth Lake lot and Sunset
Park, a new rules sign on Elizabeth Lake beach lot. He would like to put
three more signs, one
at Chipman and Charest triangle, one indicating “All Activities
Moderated by Camera” at the
launch and Labels for the kayak launch. All signage installed would be
$750.00. Motion made
by Kathy Bartus, seconded by Kelly Ratkowski. Motion carried.
Sheriff on Cass Lake – Lloyd reported the cost of $1,500 for Sheriff
coverage for all weekends.
Motion was made at the last meeting to contribute $600. A letter sent to
with Cass Lake access and was acknowledged by a few, but no one would
make a financial
commitment. We would also need a place to dock the Sheriff’s boat to
defray cost of time to
take the boat in and out of the water. It does not look like coverage
will happen this summer.
We will send another letter in the fall.
Sunset Park – Waiting for a proposal from Alex Smith to regrade and
landscape and remove the
Elizabeth Lake Party – A resident had a graduation party on the
Elizabeth Lake beach site. Some
residents complained. There are no rules, permits or locks, therefore,
the resident was not in
new owner if the home was purchased before the new fiscal year.
Welcome Packets – Packets have been updated, and we are up to date on
Financial Review – Jacqui was not in attendance, therefore, discussion
was tabled until next

storage and put
together a plan and report.
Voicemail/Mail - Kathy reported all voicemail retrievals and post office
box mail pickup are up
Ground/Maintenance – Alex was not in attendance, but we are awaiting his
proposal for work
on Sunset Park.
Improvement Ideas – If anyone has any new ideas, please submit.
Kathy Bartus crafted a letter to unauthorized slip holders, which she
distributed to the Board.
Motion was made by Jiri that we send it on behalf of the Board. Hazel
seconded the motion.
