DISCUSS HOW THE 2018 HARRIS POND LAKE ASSOCIATION RAFFLE TICKET SALES ARE GOING.

FUTURE ACTIVITY FOR HANDLING CURLY LEAF.
Kent stated in our study five (5) years ago, curly leaf was found on the pond but at that time was not a major problem.  We need to know if it has gotten worse by expanding or not  We would like Anna Cisar, AIS Coordinator, to go to plotted areas to find out if it is worse or not.  We will then decide what action to take.
FURTHER INFORMATION ON PLACING MUIR BIRD CLUB FISHING LINE CONTAINERS AROUND HARRIS POND.
It was stated Phyllis Ingram, Town of Harris Representative, will find out more information from Darryl Christenson concerning the installation of the fishing line containers.

ANY OTHER ITEMS NOT PREVIOUSLY ADDRESSED
Randy stated our information board by the lake; the side with the American flag painted on it is warped a bit.  Also the dock has a ripple in it.  It was suggested to keep an eye on these items as it could be only the weather affecting them.
Kent stated he received information about a product called, “Muck-Away”.  The product is able to eat muck, about two (2) inches every two (2) months.  A 36 lb. container will treat 1 acre of water and is applied three (3) times, every two (2) months.  For testing purposes, we could possibly treat the west side of the pond, from the boat launch to Lakeside Farms during the summertime.  The product claims it does not hurt fish or wildlife.  The price is $699.00 for 36 lbs.  As much as six (6) inches of muck could conceivably be gone.  Before we decide anything, we will need to ask Anna Cisar, AIS Coordinator, if using this product is feasible.
PLAN FOR NEXT BOARD MEETING
Our next Board of Directors meeting will be held on Saturday, May 12, 2018, at the Firemen’s Community Room, following our Flower/Brat Sale, at 2:00 pm.
MOTION TO ADJOURN
