1) Yellow Lake Condo Rip-Rap: Mike Lien from the Yellow Lake Condo Association Board made his presentation.
There is 140 ft of shoreline showing extreme erosion. They are asking for any amount to help with the cost of the
rip-rap. His bids are the same from Affordable and Evergreen at $14,000. YLRA would like to maintain the depth
under the bridge created from the last dredge. Therefore, Marie suggested to ask the condo assoc to redredge
and rebuild that point prior to the rip-rap. Mike is getting quotes to have that done. We will meet (possibly a
December special session) to vote on the amount to donate to the project. We would like to keep it wide and
deep enough to make for safe boat passage under the bridge.
2) Spring Picnic: Sweeney’s on June 11. Bob made to motion, Marie 2 nd , and it passed. Jim has set up a DNR Fish
Biologist to do a presentation at the picnic to share fish counts and general biological fish and wildlife info on the
lakes and river.
1) North landing dock: Dock pulled, Bob suggested fixing the landing and spreading asphalt over to widen the
landing. They would like to put the dock in the center of the landing next year. The landing supply leftovers from
spring inventory include: 27 bottles of cleaning fluid (3 are new), 3 hooks, 4 brushes, 3 goggles.
2) Clothing: Marie suggested some of the items they plan to purchase: t-shirts, zip-up hoodies, windbreakers, no-
hood zip-ups. All inventory is gone at this time.
3) Yearly Donations: We are donating $500 to the Fort for Christmas for Kids. This is an approved annual donation.
4) Jamison Rd lagoon dredging: Mary got a bid for the AquaThruster for $3,000. We are waiting on the dredging bid.
5) No Wake signs on the river: We are considering adding them to the Whitetail side, due to the heavy weekend
traffic. There was a question to whether the DNR are the only ones who can post no wake signs.
The next YLRA board meeting is January 8 at Bob Savage’s Basement at 9:00 am.
Meeting adjourned: 9:45am, submitted by Deb Mlinar, Secretary.
