Treasurer Turner reported expenses for January and February at $21,804, which included $14,825 for dredging of two channel ends. Total assets are $193,485.

Water Committee Chair Lester reported the gravity flow system has continued to maintain lake level at optimum and water quality remains good. Regular testing is planned for May. In January, the Old Channel fountain was replaced. Lester and our beaver trapper will be scouting soon for signs of beaver activity.

Three men and a boat (Lester, DeVries and Brian Dawson) recently cleared low hanging branches and submerged tree limbs from an overgrown property on the Old Channel. The resident will be billed by the HOA.

The price for tilapia has increased 50 cents per pound, making this year’s cost $212 higher than last year. Once the water temperature tops 65 degrees, the lake will be stocked with tilapia for algae control.

Lester will research the costs of a temporary or a permanent boat ramp at the end of the Middle Channel on Westwood. The contractor plans to finish repairs on the Rush Creek dam soon.

Architectural Committee Chair Cubbage reported approval of a fencing project at a Loch Lomond resident. She is drafting text for an addition to the Covenants regarding solar panels and generators; the Board will discuss at an upcoming meeting.

President Sobel reminded that the volunteer Findlay Park cleanup would be scheduled this spring.

The next Board meeting was set for May 16 at the Turner residence. The meeting adjourned at 9 p.m.
