Committee Reports
Ecology - Leslie Cunningham, Jason Stebbins, Daniel Hart and Janice Labroad
Leslie Cunningham has tried several times to contact Lycott Environmental regarding the lake treatment. She received notification the earliest treatment can be done is Wednesday, July 11, 2012.

Treatment was requested earlier this year (June vs. July) which seemed to cause some confusion. We budget for 3 treatments and normally only use 2 of the 3 treatments. If an additional treatment is necessary we would cover the cost as we do budget for 3 treatments.

The Charter was previously changed to stipulate that changes to the Annual meeting date can be made if necessary. This was touched upon as the timing of the meeting and contract with Lycott do not coincide. Annual Meeting is held in June, contract with Lycott renews after the Annual meeting and the budget is approved. However, the board positions are July 01 through June 30th. Once the contract is agreed/received it needs to be registered in the legal notices of the newspaper. Leslie Cunningham will follow up with Lycott Environmental regarding the possibility of changing the contract date.
