The June POA newsletter, which includes notice of our annual meeting, will be mailed by the US postal service to all property owners in the district within a few days.
That particular newsletter is an important one as it contains a lot of information about the POA. It includes a short history of our organization, a description of how we fit with other organizations such as CLCF and PRD, a statement about our role, and a summary of our expenses. Also includes an important section that describes the POA’s position on several lake issues.
The annual meeting will be at 3:00 PM on Sunday, June 27 at the Cedar Lake Yacht Club.
Town of West Bend
The Town of West Bend recently posted on their website, a “rentals notice” reminding residents that commercial use of the residential property is prohibited. Examples given include running a business out of a garage or offering space on a dock or pier for rent or lease. The town document can be viewed by selecting the link (Notice-Rentals).
The Town of West Bend recently posted on their website a “short-term rentals” notice reminding residents of ordinance 2019-01 that a short-term rental license from the town is required for home rentals. Residential dwellings cannot be rented for less than 7 days and cannot exceed 29 days. The town document can be viewed by selecting the link (short-term rental).
Residents can submit a complaint to the town about violations of either of the issues described above. Alternately, they can ask the POA to submit the complaint if they wish to remain anonymous. Town officials have told us they will accept complaints submitted for residents by the POA.
The town has a new Chief of Police, Andrew Graper.
The CD3 dry boat cleaning system is now operational at the Gonring public boat ramp. It’s free and simple to use. The POA applauds the PRD for purchasing and installing this equipment.
Allison Scott, a research technician with the DNR, asked Big Cedar POA for help in forming a panfish focus group about panfishing on Big Cedar. Big Cedar Lake is part of the Adaptive Management Plan for Panfish in which the DNR is studying the effects of experimental regulations intended to improve panfish sizes available for angers to catch. One of our directors, Scott Rolfs, is going to lead our effort to assist the DNR.
Erik Hanson is the new DNR Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) Coordinator in our area. Washington County is included in his area of responsibility. Erik has agreed to speak to the POA at our annual meeting in June.
