Board Members in attendance: Tony Langerud, Keith Valentyn, Tim Mathre, Brian Schultz James Scholljegerdes, Tim Clark, Pete Degrood

Cormorant Shoot: Mel C provided an update via email

The application has been submitted and the plan is for a May shoot. Board members have begun contacting neighboring lakes to see if they would like to participate in the effort.

If you know anyone from an area lake please let them know about the $5,000 shoot the lake association is funding and ask if their lake association would be willing to make a donation to the effort of clearing cormorants from the area.

Aquatic Weed Harvesting: Tim M

Applications have been submitted to the DNR for the open water pathway systems on both Cannon and Wells lakes. The board approved the following fees for this June’s harvest. An email will go out early the week of April 11 with information regarding payment and request for harvesting. The payments will be due by the end of April to give the DNR time to approve the applications.

Option 1: $635 - $35 DNR application fee plus $600 harvesting fee

Lakefront property plus pathway which would include a 5,000 square foot area in front of your dock.

Option 2: $250

Pathway to Cooks Point - This would create a pathway from approximately 100 feet from shore out to Cook Point plus a pathway from Warsaw to Cooks Point.

Option 3: Donation

Make a donation to help with the $25,000 cost of the project. This would help in keeping a path open from Cooks Point to Warsaw.

Checks should be made out to: CWLA and mailed to:

PO Box 64 Warsaw, MN 55021

A motion was made and approved by the board to accept electronic payments for weed harvesting and dues.

2022 Membership Dues: Board discussion

2022 Cannon Wells Lake Association dues for 2022 are set at $50. An email will go out the week of April 18th with information about due payment options We are working on

an option for electronic payment using Paypal or Venmo. Thank you to James S for efforts on getting this setup.

Checks should be made out to: CWLA and mailed to:

Buoy Markers: Brian S

We will make an effort to extend the buoy from Warsaw as far into the lake as possible. Brain is getting the cost for additional buoys. The board will consider purchasing more buoys to better mark the harvesting pathway from Cooks Point to Warsaw. We will be sending out information regarding sponsoring a buoy once we have the cost. Your name would be placed on the buoy you are sponsoring.

Board Membership: Board discussion

The board's plan is to come up with service periods (2 & 3 year) and an election process to be implemented by the end of the year. We are looking to add a board member from Wells Lake. If you are interested please email

CWLA Benefit: Board discussion

The Channel Inn & Doc’s Doc have offered to host our 2nd annual fundraiser. Date to be announced. Please think about items you could donate to the silent auction.

CWLA finances: Board discussion

The board hopes to set up the association as a 501(c)3. This would require some type of detailed bookkeeping and financial reporting. Tim M will look into what accounting system would provide the record keeping required for a 501(c)3.

A motion was made and approved by the board to adjourn the meeting.
