Meeting Called to order: 7:00 P.M. The minutes were approved with no corrections.

Joe Horton: Presented information about a new source for weed control. See for more information. You may also go to the forum on the website to discuss your views.

Dianna: Merrill Lynch Fund which held $150.00 was closed since no interest was earned in this account. Also, $1,900.00 is currently held in a Columbia Daily Income Fund. This will be closed and the funds will be transferred to a Treasury Bill along with other funds from the budget to equal $5,000.00. This will be short a term (three months). Through October 2, 2005, the total fund in the budget is $24,283.12. Please see the attached budget. Bob made a motion to pay the following bills:
Liability Insurance: $1734.00; Shelley Oleachea-Caufield: $60.17 for printing and plastic bins for storage of past minutes and other information. These items will be stored in the pump house located at Nick & Maidie Welsh Park. The motion was seconded and all present agreed.

Jason: Notices will be mailed to collect from those who have not paid the boat fees for the use of Blue Lake this summer. This year only, the fee was reduced to $25.00. Also, new yellow flags have been ordered. They will be ready to use in the spring for the new warning system. Please refer to September and/or August minutes for information about the new warning system. Or contact Jason.

Lance: The date for the next boat launch meeting is to be advised. The committee will take a closer look at the east side of the park nearer to the chain link fence bordering the property division between Nick & Maidie Welsh Park & the Ferris’s. This will be done when the lake level has gone down to winter levels. This will start on the 15th of October.

Terry: Repairs to the Interlachen sign at the west entrance of Interlachen Lane will be done. Also, the lettering on the sign at the east entrance will be repainted.

Social Committee: No Report.

Old Business: We are still in need of a bookkeeper. After a brief discussion Terry made a motion to hire the same bookkeeper that the IWPUD uses. It was seconded, all agreed. A discussion will take place with the bookkeeper of our choice and hopefully she will agree to take the job. The salary will be determined.
The issue of hiring a caretaker to do general maintenance has been tabled until our November meeting.

New Business: There have been reports of people using Nick & Maidie Welsh Park for parties and who have not alerted the Interlachen, Inc. board members. While the park is available for the use of all members, the board must be advised in advance. This way conflicts can be avoided. There was a brief discussion about placing a permanent sign at the park about this information. Further discussion will take place at the November meeting.
Bob will review the status of insurance for the board members.
Terry made a motion to send flowers & a bereavement card to Russell Lentz whose wife Ardys passed away on October 2nd. It was seconded; all agreed.
