Nominating committee: Members for 2004-2005 board are as follows Jason McGowan, Lisa Saxton, Bob Hood, Terry Schulz, Shelley Oleachea-Caufield, Debbie Bristow, and Steve Gould. Normally, the board consists of eight people. Each year it has been increasingly difficult to recruit new board members and this year was no exception.

Old Business: (1) $100.00 fee for water bill assessed to members who live on Blue Lake. This is to pay for water pumped into Blue Lake. (2) A request was made for a specific date to be given in advance as to when water would be pumped into Blue Lake. However, this is difficult to do since this information isn’t received by the Blue Lake Commissioner in a timely manner. (3) Did the board follow up on FEMA as noted in last years minutes? Yes, but as homeowners have noted FEMA is not willing to change how and when they respond to requests for help. The best information at this time is Interlachen will have to resubmit a request in five years and hope that FEMA has time to respond. (4) Interlachen Time For A Change and speed bumps as noted under commissioner reports.
