The board members approved the Patrol for 2012. The total amount is not to exceed $2,500. The patrol times were discussed and that it would be more beneficial for the patrol to be at the later hours than the early morning hours. Rob Namowicz will set up a time schedule for the patrol to follow. Ken Gill will spearhead the contract for the Marine Patrol with Ken Elwert from the Independence Township Parks, Recreation & Seniors director.
  • The new residents of Deer Lake were sent out “welcome Packages”. Sharon Hurlbert is to call them inviting them to the annual meeting.
  • The agenda for the annual meeting for the DLPOA was discussed & finalized.
  • Lawn care & fertilizer was discussed. The use of phosphorous-free fertilizer is recommended since it has less of an environmental impact on the water quality. The DEQ recommendation is to fertilize only in the spring and late fall. The grass in the summer normally goes dormant in the hot weather and fertilizer is not required.
  • The term of duties for the officers and board members was discussed. All officers are to begin the second year of their term this April. A membership announcement will be made at the DLPOA annual meeting for anyone interested in joining.
