A Productive Meeting
Thanks to all guests and property owners who attended the Annual General Meeting this afternoon. We'll post the full minutes as soon as possible. Mayor Linda Collins and Councillor Perry Ritchie were on hand to represent Springwater Council, informing attendees of recent Council initiatives and graciously responding to comments and questions. Executive reports were delivered by officers responsible for finance, membership, the annual picnic, and lake stewardship. Dave Featherstone of the NVCA presented a slideshow summary of the contents of the Orr Lake Watershed Report Card. Under new business, Jason Harris of Orr Lake Golf Club reported details of pesticide use on the course (copies of his report may be obtained at the club) and Susan Eccleshall shared plans to erect community bulletin boards in two locations.
There was a great deal of informative discussion regarding lake levels. Dave Featherstone provided a web address where interested parties can view actual lake levels in real time as collected by the electronic monitor installed last year in cooperation with Springwater Township. Please see our links below to reach this site (Dave also advised that the station is temporarily offline but should be operational again within the next week or so).
We would like to welcome three new members to the executive. On board to help serve our community beginning with the 2012-13 season are Ryan Wicks, Gary Wicks, and Mike Conway.
Once more, our thanks to all who participated today. With your input, we feel we have clear direction that will enable us to serve the interests of the Orr Lake community responsibly and effectively.
