- Five year plan for properties. Jason Stebbins presented a plan for improvement to the lower (south) beach lot with an initial cost estimate of $10,047. This included passive drive way for boat launching using pavers which grass would grow around. This would allow for members, lake treatment company and fire department to safely launch equipment without disturbing or damaging the lot. It would also allow handicap access to the lake front. In addition the estimate includes a low retaining wall to prevent further erosion of the beach and allow safe access to the water for children. There would also be a sand area for children to play in. The vision is to include picnic tables and grills which would make this a nice area for family picnics and parties.
The budget for 2012-2013 was discussed and a motion was made by Lorraine Creedon and seconded by Jason Bouchard to accept the proposed budget of $22,600. The motion carried.
Motion made, seconded and carried to adjourn at 9:00 p.m.
