Status of Maintenance Fee Payment Melody reported that approximately 83 maintenance fee payments have been paid so far. Margaret suggested a follow up letter in the near future for those residents that are delinquent.

Lake Health Bob B. reported that he was out of town for the month of July. He shared that he had wrote to DFM in appreciation that the berm was opened prior to Hurricane Iselle to reduce flooding. Bob suggested that a better lake maintenance plan be set up as he has been too busy to organize the clean ups. He stated that there are several platforms around the lake and there is a lake maintenance boat available for clean up crews. Margaret volunteered to establish criteria for lake maintenance. Bob B, Bob M., and Michele offered to assist. Jennifer stated that she will find someone to take over the organization. The clean up committee will meet to discuss liability.
