Dues have recently been used to:

1.  Purchase and install an air compressor near the weir that pumps air to 6 diffusers around the bottom of our lake.  Purchase and install 1 circulator to improve the finger, which pumps to circulate high volumes of water at high velocity within this cove. (2010) The ultimate goal is to restore our lake to its original natural condition for fishing and for bird and wildlife watching.
2.  Pay for electricity to run the pumps and circulator.
3.  Purchase bird banger guns to keep cormorants from feeding on bass fingerlings.
4.  Trim the oak trees and put sod in the E. Lakeview circle to prevent trash from washing into the lake.
5.  Lake cleanup, maintenance, pond products and hiring Mark McElroy to spray all areas of the lake that had pennywort and other aquatic plants.
6.  Fish stocking, lake insurance, printing supplies for newsletters and other announcements to lake residents, and to finance lake events.
7.  Hire a lake consultant (Mark McElroy, retired from Wildlife and Fisheries) to advise, check water quality, and oversee yearly stocking of the lake. NOTE:  Yearly stocking of the lake is not longer required!!  Bass are doing great!

8. Do a lake drawdown from Nov. 2013 - Feb. 2014, Nov. 2016 - Feb. 2017,  Nov. 2019 - Feb. 2020.

9.  Continue maintenance on the Lake circulator and diffusers as needed.
