New Business

  • Western Shore Restoration: For weed control work in the canal, the best cost-wise options are herbicide treatment for selective (non-native) lily pads ($3,800) and mechanical pull for seaweed ($1,600). Clearcast herbicide (non-toxic) should be applied when vegetation is in full bloom. Estimate ~6 acres from the boat ramp to the mouth of the south entrance. A maximum of 20 acres per waterbody is allowed before permits are required with the state, DEQ. Beg letter discussion Total: $5,200 for the first year. Success at Devils Lake.  

Pros: improve navigation and safety for tenmile lakes

TLA approves a motion to support fundraising for this effort, conditional on getting permits. 

  • Motion approved for TLA to get hats made with logo. 

  • Betty Ewing made paper designs for TLA Train Car (super cute train car) Dee to take to the design to the organizers. 

  • Oregon Marine Board says it costs ($500,000) for floating toilets plus additional maintenance. 


OLD BUSINESS/ACTION ITEMS

  • Get set up with square? (Betty)

  • Beg letter discussion
