Strategic Plans:  M. Novack moved to accept the slate that has agreed to run for the new Board of Directors.  She noted all are paid up members and qualified to run.  It was seconded by J. Fernie.  It was decided to print the biographies for the Board nominees and pass them out at the Annual Meeting check-in table giving attendees time to study before voting.  The liability insurance was discussed.  

Executive session was called at 7:30 pm.

Dredging Actions:  S. Harding stated the State and Federal authorities are in possession of all required documentation and are reviewing same for support of our dredge project.  We are waiting on their final review.  Next year’s budget has $150,000 allotted for dredging.  J. Simonpietra has offered assistance for getting lake sediment samples for testing for upland disposal of dredged materials.

Lake Maintenance:  S. Oshiro has scheduled the Kailua soccer team to participate in a lake cleanup on Veterans Day, November 12.  It will be between the hours of 8 am to 12 am.  Residents will be notified if entrance to their property from the street is necessary to clean their area.  An email will be sent by C. Turner to alert residents of the cleanup.  She led the discussion regarding the EcoHarvestor.  This will be pending final approval of the board after all logistical problems have been solved.  These include where it can be launched, stored or moored, and how to unload and dispose of algae “harvested” from the lake.  C. Turner, M. Compton, and G. Lingle agreed to look into the questions that have been raised.    

Next Meeting Date:  The next meeting will be Tuesday, November 13, 2018 at 7 pm.  Location is to be determined.  The meeting adjourned at 9:23 pm.
