Approval of Minutes from the 1/21/19 Commissioners Meeting:

A motion was made by Jeff Jones, seconded by Tim Laseke, and passed unanimously to approve the 1/21/18 meeting minutes.


Sonar Project Review

Tim Laseke gave an overview of the weed abatement project and past efforts to address the growth of invasive weed species. We are at a point where a more effective approach is needed to address the weed issue. It was determined through working with our designated lake biologist that Fluridone, an organic compound used as aquatic herbicide, is the best course of action to control Eurasian Water Milfoil.


Open Discussion

A Q&A session followed the project review with discussions about treatment toxicity which is limited, loan terms and repayment with no need to raise additional revenues, treatment guarantees, and vendor selection and track record. No objections were raised.

Katherine Schauer, LDLD Secretary, read the proposed resolution in full to authorize the District Board of Commissioners of the Lake Denoon Lake District to borrow the sum of Thirty Thousand and 00/100 Dollars ($30,000) for the purpose of financing weed abatement program AND, levy upon all the taxable property of the district a direct and irrepealable annual tax for the purpose of paying, and sufficient to pay both the interest on the loan as it becomes due and repay the loan principal within 3 years of making of the loan.
