Kent stated Jermitt Krage, a member, has been very interested in forming a committee compromised of the Harris Pond Lake Association; Sportsmen’s Club; the Town Board; area business’s and concerned citizens to address the future of Harris Pond. Jermitt explained if nothing is done in the near future, the lake/pond will eventually dry up. There are challenging problems, which include the wild rice that seems to be over-taking the lake; invasive plants and the sediment. It was the general consensus to invite the public to our next board meeting, in February, to brain-storm ideas. Jermitt stated he will put together a list of questions and ideas for this meeting.
