Sonar Update – After discussions with the treatment vendor it was decided to add a bump of Sonar in Fall of 2019 to enhance the weed treatment results. Tim Laseke is looking into the cost and process with the DNR for adding a Sonar bump in Spring of 2020. However, the current financial status may become a limiting factor for further treatments.
City of Muskego Funding – Kevin Kubaki received approval of funds from the City of Muskego for $4,560. The City of Muskego provides funding to other local lakes and now Lake Denoon will be included. Jeff Jones will be requesting the funds from Sharon Miller.
Clean Boats Clean Waters Grant – Lake Denoon Lake District application for the Clean Boats Clean Waters (CBCW) grant program was approved by the State of Wisconsin. The purpose of the grant is to provide funding for 200 hours of monitoring the public boat launches and educating boaters about best practices to minimize the spread of aquatic invasive species from other lakes to Lake Denoon. With a total budget of $12,000 ($8,000 from the DNR and $4,000 committed by LDLD), the next step is to define Lake Denoon’s program, hire inspectors, train and implement the program.
Assessment Planning – The list of LDLD members was submitted to the City of Muskego for the $220 annual assessment fee that was included with the property tax bill.
Aquatic Plant Survey – LDLD is required by the State of Wisconsin to undertake a point-intercept plant survey in 2020. The survey fee was included as part of the 2020 budget. This standardized sampling method helps us to see how Lake Denoon aquatic plant abundance compares among other lakes and assess the effectiveness of the Sonar treatments.
ADJOURN: Kevin Kubacki motioned to adjourn the meeting, seconded by Kathy Schauer and all approved. The meeting concluded at approximately 7:20 P.M.
