The 2017 Membership form was approved and a cover letter developed. Review of the Crow Wing County AIS Inspector schedule for 2017 was completed and a request for additional hours covering six more days will be made. Information was shared on the new decontamination station at Breezy Point. The Boat Parade will be held on July 4th. The vice president position is open and will be elected at the annual meeting in August. Nominations for vice president are being sought.
The Association's Board has been meeting to firm up plans for 2016. As part of the Crow Wing County AIS Plan, Bass Lake will receive 200 hours of AIS Inspection coverage. As inspection has been proven to be effective in containing the spread of invasive species, it was decided increase hours of inspection time with BLA funds. A schedule was created so that every weekend from May 14 (Fishing Opener) through the weekend after Labor Day would have an inspector with approximately 270 hours. The additional coverage would cost in the neighborhood of $1000. The majority of the weekends will be scheduled with 5 hour shifts with a few 8 hour shifts on expected high traffic weekends.
In addition, as part of the county AIS Plan, money is available for education. The Board decided to apply for funds to distribute the information packet created by Crow Wing County Land Services to all residents with additional information on the decontamination units located in the area.
As always, input from all members is welcomed and encouraged!
