The Clerk talked to Roy Kenast from the DNR regarding GARBAGE STICKERS. She suggested instead of using the stickers the wardens can write down the date and number of bags they dropped off on a log sheet and we could bill them monthly, quarterly or yearly. The board decided to bill them at the end of the season.
The Board discussed the LAKE ENJOYMENT AND SAFETY SURVEY on Town of Hunter lakes. Kay felt most of the comments were concerning the lack of enforcement with wake boats and jet skis.
