Old Business:

3. Channel Dredging: Lonny Day reported on talks with Marv Kladder. A silt fence could be built. Parks I & K on Pine between Channel & Lake Shore could be used for pumped out materials. County doesn't want to help. Public hearing is needed to move forward. A lot is going on with no answers. The idea of renting a dredging pump was suggested, work should be done in August when channel water is lowest. Best cost estimate is $10,000. Channel is about 35' wide.

4. Assoc Violation Lot 613: Stuart Hazle continues to work on. Tall wooden fence is being built by the owner of the lot.

5. Assoc Tennis Court Cherry Dr: Stuart Hazle reported 2 estimates, $2680-Andys & $1200-Ninjas. South neighbor Amanda Evanzo told the Board the only issue of North neighbor is Andys Tree Service wanted to drop all branches on top of her new septic tank. Lonny Day motioned to have Ninjas Tree Service do the work, seconded by Kym Scheuneman, motion passed.

7. Townline Lake Fish: Roger Jachim reported DNR will stock the lake with "walleye fingerlings" early June 2020.

8. Dock Committee: Rascal Calcutt reported the committee hasn't met yet. All docks are out.

When the docks go in next spring, policy & plan should be in place.

9. Road Care: Kym Scheuneman reported waiting on estimate for Hemlock Dr. Hazel Dr has 100' of wedge washed out. Lake Shore Dr has a bad stretch of road in front of Ford Lincolm Park. Kym to check with county & township on repairs and who pays.
