Hi Lone Lakers,
We have a lot going on in June on Lone Lake and the LLPOA wants to bring you up-to-date on a few items of common interest to all members. At the Board of Directors meeting in May, Marty Cook resigned his secretarial board position, because he will be commuting to Philadelphia for the next year or two on a special work project. After discussing how to fill the position, board member Linda Szymanski volunteered and the board unanimously approved her appointment as secretary. We thank Marty for his dedication and great service to our association as secretary and team leader of the Fish and Wildlife Team.
We also thank the 21 members that came out for the Spring Road Clean-up on Saturday, May 12. This is a great way to meet lake neighbors and to keep the environment around the lake clean. If you missed the event this spring, come out on September 8 for the fall clean-up.
A developing story on Lone is the application of Mark Ritter to mine and crush gravel at the pit over on Ditch Bank Road (Co. Rd. 28) with a hearing set for June 18th. Our Land Use and Zoning Team Leader David Wilke is looking into the provision of the Conditional Use Permit Application so that the LLPOA Board can formulate a plan. Our efforts in the past have not been successful to prevent the use so the Board will most likely seek accommodation on the hours and overall duration of the mine and crush operation. As we get more specific information, we will let members know more details and hopefully have a good turnout for the hearing. If you’d like to weigh in, feel free to call me.
On a more positive note the Rivers and Lakes Fair will be held at Aitkin High School on Sat., June 16 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. LLPOA is a proud $200 sponsor of this great family event and we urge members to take advantage of the workshops and family friendly displays
