PRESENT: Roger Spindler, Norman Baker, Jon Ebensperger, Terry Johnson , Kimberly Lunda, and Chris Zenner.


MOTION to Accept April 28, 2021 Board Meeting Minutes by Johnson/Ebensperger, motion carried.

PUBLIC WORKS: Discussion opened with reviewing sidewalk project. We will be completing sidewalk project and the Basketball Court this year. The board decided that they want to cover the whole side of Main from McConnell’s and the corner by Chef Shack. to the driveway just before the post office. Chris reported that we have had several meetings with Cedar Corporation and the builders of the campground restroom/shower over getting it back up and running again. He feels that we must keep on them about this or they will just keep stalling. Chris reported that he needed to take several trees down in the campground as they are dead or dying. He also needed to take the tree down in front of Frank Hince’s home as it was heaving the sidewalk. Chris said he would be seeing about getting Bruce Andrews lift so that he can safely take down that tree. Advertisement for the sidewalks have been put in the newspaper and Chris said that he would be meeting with one contractor this week. He is hoping that we can discuss the bidding at the next meeting. He reported that the restrooms at Village Hall were completed by Roper Construction. Chris also asked the board about buying a smaller chain saw so that it would be easier to trim down by the lake, the board agreed he needed something smaller. He also said that Mike Shoeder donated a cage that could be used to access the upper room in the campground restroom facility.

DISCUSSION on Bach Management managing the upper campground. The board agreed with the clerk that we needed to do something to help with all the conflicts that have been happening, but we cannot afford for him to receive the percentage of the seasonal sites either. Bob proposed that he would do it for an extra $250 per month. The board agreed to do that.

MOTION was made by Baker and seconded by Johnson for Jerry McConnell with Jon Ebensperger voting no.

MOTION by Jon Ebensperger then nominated Jesse Hohman but could not get a second vote, President Spindler abstained as it would then leave us with no one in the seat and he felt that Bay City deserved all the seats to be filled. Jerry McConnell was nominated for the position.
