Various topics were discussed at the March 18th Conservancy meeting. A new dredging company who was the low bidder was selected for the coming dredging on Sweetwater Lake. The security commission has 6 applicants for 2 empty seats waiting to be filled. The manager was given permission to shop for a new mower. The Sweetwater boat ramp dock has been severely damaged by shifting ice and may need to be replaced.
The board of directors voted to move the monthly meetings to Saturdays during June, July, and August. Meeting dates will be June 14th, July 12th, and August 16th at 8:30 AM.


Spring is just a couple of days away. The Robins are here. Flowers are starting to poke up in the flower beds. Mr. Loon appeared today in front of my house.

Took down the Martin bird house last fall from the fireworks point and cleaned it out. Martin house has been re-located near the gas pumps on Sweetwater and is ready for occupancy! Ice disappeared off of the main lake this weekend. Several boats were out on Saturday dodging a few icebergs still floating around. Police chief Bernie was seen re-setting the boating lights on each lake. Spring is near!

The Cordry Sweetwater Fire Department has installed an ice dispenser at the front of the fire station for residents. Need a quick bag of ice....go to the fire station. $2.00 per bag or $10.00 for six bags. Take the correct change as it is on the "honor system." Pictured is department member Mike Fouch demonstrating the machine.

GP Construction was recently awarded permits to construct several docks on the lakes. They are using the ice on the lakes to their advantage by driving pipe and laying out the framework while being able to stand on the ice. Pictured is Rodney Gunter's son, Brandon, driving one of the pipes for this project on Drum Drive.
