Treasures Report –
Georganne reviewed the treasurers report. The treasurers report is available to review by all Lake of the Hills residents. If you would like to review the report, please contact a board member.
A newsletter will be sent out with the dues notice on January 25, 2020. Please look for this in your mail. Dues are due by March 25, 2020.
A list of all outstanding accounts with names and addresses will be listed in the newsletter. If you see your name, please contact a board member about your past due account.
A motion to approve the report was 1st by Dick, 2nd by Elissa.
Fish Report –
Dick reviewed the fish report. We will be planting fish in the Spring. Fish can be purchased after April 1, 2020. We are planning more Crappie and bass. Walleye do not survive in our lake so we will not be purchasing those. If you have other fish suggestions for purchase, please let a board member know and we can talk to Dick to see if it is something that will survive in our lake.
The water report was good. The PH of the water is basic, not acidic. Salt content was good. Prosperous was high, but nothing above normal levels.
To keep the prosperous down, please avoid burning leaves near the water.
A motion to accept the fish report was 1st by Matt, seconded by Georganne.
Late Fees: Currently, when dues are late (paid after March 25 with usually a grace period of 30 days) there is a $10.00 late fee applied to the account per lot per month. This has been changed. If dues are not paid by April 25, a one time fee of $25 will be applied to each lot annually.
LOHA is in needs of a grounds keeper. If we cannot find one, we will have to hire an outside service which will most likely come at a higher cost. This would include mowing in the summer at the boat launch and park on West Shore Drive, trimming weeds, and weed control on the dams. Please inquire if you are interested and we can bid you your service. Otherwise, Elissa will look into bids for mowing from outside companies.
The outtake dam: Some of the boards are rotting and need to be replaced. Scott will look into getting prices for boards. Need to look at different lengths and heights, and thickness. Bottom needs to be notched. Name in file (Scott has) who replaced them last, Miller engineering.
Reminder on FB when dues are due about 2 weeks prior to due date.
Picnic 2020 – this year we are planning a fishing tournament for kids day of picnic. 14 and under. We will have a few different age groups. Start at 7 a.m. and go till 11 a.m. Every participant gets a LOHA tee-shirt for participation and winner of each group with biggest fish will get a prize. Nothing is set in stone, but this is an idea we’re throwing around. If you have other activities you would like to see happen at the picnic, please speak with a board member. We are open to all ideas.
First Dues notice will be mailed on January 25, 2020 at 1:00.
Open Meeting in April 18, 2020 at 1:00 at Eagles, Elissa to set it up.
Second dues notice mailing first of May.
Annual meeting in May 16, 2020 6:00 pm at the Eagles.
Final dues notice after due date and late fee date, after Memorial Day.
Clean up day: June 6, 2020 at 10 a.m. at boat launch. This year we will focus on getting branches and logs out of the water, especially in the covet. Remove sinking docks. Please let us know if you see anything around our lake that requires special attention for clean up day.
