New president’s letter soon

Hi friends my name is Carole Olson, and I have been voted in as the SLPOA Board President for this coming year. I look forward to the opportunity to continue helping make Sand Lake and our association the best that it can be.

    At this time I would like to thank Vic Warnement for his hard work and dedication during his past six years on the board .  We are fortunate to have his assistance this next year as Past President a voting member of the board. His experience and expertise will be very helpful as we wrap up the Lakes Management Plan which has covered stocking and lake management since 2012. The Board will continue working with SLPOA members and the Department Of Natural Resources to improve lake management.    

    As summer gently comes to a close, and we start to see our neighbors and friends closing their cabins for the season, the County will provide the Decontamination Unit at the boat launch each weekend through the end of September.  The decontamination unit is a self contained high pressure sprayer with hot enough water to clean and kill zebra mussels that may be on your boat or pontoon. All boats going through the public access will be checked and sprayed to remove zebra mussels whether you are going to another lake or storing the boat/pontoon for the season.  We were very fortunate to have both the DNR and the County checking boats coming in and out of Sand Lake to try and stop the transfer of invasive species from lake to lake in Minnesota.  More information can be found on NextDoor regarding time and dates.

    Watch for the upcoming Sand Paper for updated information and informative articles. I look forward to meeting more of my neighbors on the lake as I continue serving on the board.
