Approval of Minutes:  B. Tassie moved and G. Colbert seconded the minutes of the November 13th meeting be approved.

Finance: Copies of the monthly financial reports were sent out via email prior to the meeting.   B. Tassie moved and M. Novack seconded the Finance report be approved.

Lake health:  C. Turner has done much research into the EcoHarvester.  The lake will always be subject to excess nutrients entering our lake through city drains and from construction runoff.  This causes overgrowth of the algae.  It’s felt we need something in place to mitigate these ongoing problems.  Much discussion ensued regarding launching, training, storage, and lastly, insurance.  C. Turner reported we have an agreement from KCA’s Bill Sullivan to launch the EcoHarvester at the Kukilakila ramp.  It can be stored at C. Turner’s home.  A.  Richardson requested an agreement in writing regarding storage.  There was discussion whether such a craft should be insured with our boat insurance or the overall lake policy.  G Colbert suggested we finish voting on the purchase after insurance is addressed.  This could be done by mail if all is settled before the next meeting.  G. Gustavson moved, B. Tassie seconded and D. Kroll abstained that we purchase the EcoHarvester after the insurance matter is settled. The motion passed.

Community Relations:  G. Lingle will lead the Holiday Flotilla this year.  Sunday the 23rd of December was chosen as the date.  C. Turner will send an email to ELRA members and note it on our website.

Dredging Actions:  S. Harding reported that he has started meeting with contractors to whom we have sent letters of interest for the project.  He will take them out to survey the different areas needing work when needed.  Places for the spoils were also discussed.

Executive session was called.

Next Meeting Date:  The next meeting date will be Tuesday, January 8th, 2019 at the Lutheran Church.  The meeting was adjourned at 9:34 pm.
