Lake update

Joe said that lake levels are lower than last year and shared information about working with the Great Lakes Coalition to get more voice and help find solutions for our lake situation.

Douglas Beach

Pat reported that more repair has to be done on the steps. The bottom part of the steps will be aluminum and removable. There will be more seating areas. This should be done by Memorial Day weekend. A motion was passed for up to an additional $500.00 to be given, and with the already appropriated $500.00 from 2016, used to buy and designate a bench in memory of Sheldon Wettack.
