Approximately 9 residents

The meeting was called to order at 7:30  PM by Chairman Freeman.

Regular Business

The November  board minutes were read, corrected  and approved by Supervisors Freeman & Mead.  All ayes, motion carried.  A correction was made to clarify that it was not WLSSD but rather the St Louis County’s Hazardous Waste Site that takes in various items.  Residents were advised to call for items accepted and fees involved.

Treasurer Report

The November  treasurer report was available for review.

Old Business

Comp Plan

An invitation has been issued to Jessie Shombert of the Sea Grant Program to speak about Comp Planning.

Resort on Little Pequaywan

The County Attorney is considering taking legal action against the resident that is renting his property out as a resort.

ATV Trail from West Branch Road to Bear Lake

The county has advised that the ATV trail from West Branch Road to Bear Lake will be blocked.

High Water Level of Pequaywan Lake

The dam height guidelines were determined by the DNR and it has not been changed.  Fall rains have put the water 6-8″ over the top of dam and trees are under water.  There appears to be no beaver activity affecting the water level.

East Shore Road and Pinewood Road Property

Resident Gordy Larsen presented a list of homeowners that have been notified of the possibility of Pequaywan Township purchasing property for resale to involved property owners.  All residents have responded but one; a letter has been mailed to said resident with no response. Due to the complexity of the matter the issue will probably be brought back to the board for discussion in the spring of 2008.  It was discussed that the Land Department no longer inventories property lines but is now done by Land Surveyors.
