TLBP Report Mike Mader: Not present, report submitted as follows:

1. All is going well with Beaver Reintro 404 permit. On draft #3 and I'm having dinner meeting tonight with DSL representative to discuss and get input. Completion ETA end of December beginning of January. 2. I have attached the old TLBP lake brochure. I think I drafted many, many years ago and itʼs in need of updating. I was hoping to get your input and edits to improve. Itʼs a trifold and looks kinda weird in the adobe format. Need information that our Lakefront owners need. Maderm

John Reiss has volunteered to help TLBP with the brochure.

Alan Whitney thinks TLBP needs to add stream erosion work, Stuart-ship of using low phosphates soaps.

It was brought up that there is a proposed In-pound yard to go in around hwy 101 and 8th street. TLBP evaluated it and said they would not want this as Eel Creek runs through this property and could contaminate the stream.

Membership Report Rachele: not present


Lake Gauge Report John Reiss: The gauge is acting up, we think itʼs a bad sensor. A new water gauge is about $800 - $1000. TLA gave $500.00 to upgrade Data Logger already this last year. They are going to try and clean up the gauge and will report back at the next meeting.

Weed Barrier: Video is now available on YouTube. TLA can make these barriers for members at a cost of $100.00 per 10x10. Just a reminder you will need to move the barrier around and shake off the slit yearly.

Approach for low water: Is working on the 404 permit submission for a natural beaver dam.

Dues will increase to $25.00 in 2019 or $100.00 for five years.

New Website: Needs pictures, if you have any pictures and would like to share, please send them

Weather Cam at Ringoʼs Marina: John Reiss said he has had this on his mind for sometime and has a lot of questions that need answers. Like how much do we want to spend on a camera system, exposure to the elements, quality of the

pictures. James Edwards thought this would tie in with our tourism and would look into see if the cities tourism tax dollars could help fund this in some way. Alan Whitney would like to see a higher end system without a monthly fee. The general consensus was to get a low to high cost and report back to the next general meeting with this information.

New Business: No general meeting in December and January. Next general meeting will be February 6th at 6pm - Lakeshore Lodge
