Reminders Any dock or shoreline additions or improvements must be approved by SLC. KSWR and Shawnee County Planning require a permit for any NEW improvements. Repairs or replacing existing shoreline without changing the layout do not require permits. When in doubt, call the SLC lake manager at 785.221.3248. All lake shore construction or private boat docks established by members must be maintained in first-class repair and mechanical condition. If you have a dock or boat life that is no longer operational and/or in poor condition, we will be requesting they be removed from the lake. Friendly reminder to all boaters: Review all lake rules and regulations. Be a courteous boater. If you have not taken the boater safety course, we are offering it online. Let’s all look out for each other and be good neighbors. Stickers: Don’t forget to get your 2021 boat stickers from the Lake Patrol. All boats must have them: kayaks, canoes, paddleboards and boats. NO guest boats, large or small, motored or paddled, are allowed on Lake Sherwood. This rule is important to keep out zebra mussels. Fines and suspensions will be assessed.

Letter from the SLC Board President

ello fellow Lake Club members,

What a terrific July 4th weekend!! Kudos to Jo Hunt and all the volunteers who worked so hard to coordinate and pull off one of the best celebrations ever. We also need to recognize all the members who donated monies to help offset the cost of the fireworks show. Lastly, Dillons once again supplied all the items necessary to pull off our hot dog lunch. Their contribution represents a huge savings for the club; please mention your appreciation to the general manager the next time you’re shopping at Dillons. Thank you to all the board members for their hard work on behalf of the club. This is a great group of members with skills including legal, engineering, finance and dedicated workers all. I’m honored to serve with them for the betterment of the club. Please enjoy the remainder of the summer safely! Mark

Remembering... Don Wilson, our beloved neighbor and friend, passed away unexpectedly May 14. He loved life on Lake Sherwood on his pontoon, fishing with his children and grandchildren, or just enjoying the scenery and wildlife with his wife, Jan, from his home on Dancaster.

Letter from the Lake Manager

H

ello SLC dembers,

The Sherwood Lake Club Fourth of July activities were a hit this year. After last year’s cancellations, it was great to finally be back to normal. Hundreds of people enjoyed time with family and friends on the lake and the fireworks at the dam were particularly spectacular this year. Thank you to John Matalone and his crew for a wonderful show. There is a tremendous amount of planning and work that goes into this event each year and simply would not be possible without the board of directors and volunteers. A special thank you to Jo Hunt who orchestrated the weekend’s events. We served 1,400 hot dogs, nearly 30 gallons of soft drinks and over 500 bags of chips. More than 1,000 pounds of ice was consumed. The beach games were an absolute blast and the return of the SLC tug of war was a homerun of fun. Thanks so much to those of you who played a volunteer role in this holiday’s festivities! Anyone wishing to participate/volunteer to help with the July 4 events in 2022 can email the SLC manager at manager@sherwoodlakeclub.org. The pandemic and the aftermath has caused a shortage in the work force. Many have noticed the “We Are Hiring” signs outside of many businesses. Some of our lake patrol have returned to school; thus, we are shorthanded and struggling to find employees. Most of our current staff are working from home and are “on call” at the boat ramp. As a result, if you would like to launch your boat during the weekdays, please call the LP phone 221-2628 or the manager’s phone at 221-3248 and make an appointment. The lake patrol will be present at the beach on weekends. We are planning on having the LP on duty (or on call) through October, but the hours will be modified as the summer ends and we enter the fall months. Thank you for your assistance in this matter. In addition, I have received many compliments this season about the lake patrol and the manner in which they have delt with issues on the lake. I would like to thank Travis Hirt for his efforts to make this happen. Travis is a club member and came to work for us last fall. He has worked long hours, especially on weekends, and has done a great job for the SLC. On July 27, the SLC management received a call from the office of Shawnee County Public Works informing us that Sherwood Lake had a sewage spill in the Aylesbury/ Chelmsford cove. Based on the direction of the Public Works office, SLC management immediately closed the cove. The Public Works office stated that the spill was very small and that only the cove needed to be closed. The water was tested daily by SCPW personnel and the cove was reopened on Friday, July 30, at 5 p.m. The deputy director of SC Public Works informed us that a previous electrical storm had tripped the breakers on the pump stations in the area. The pumps stopped working, and that caused the back up. The sewer pump stations are scheduled to be replaced in the fall of 2021 and will include battery backup systems to avoid any future spills.

The storms on the nights of May 7 and 8 that washed nearly two feet of sand from under the boardwalk at the beach have been repaired in June by Brad Schmidtlein’s company. They did a fantastic job. Furthermore, work was completed to repair several broken sections of beach dock; those repairs were performed by Fannian Fabrication and installed by Chad Gordon and Skip Russell. Thank you to those gentlemen who got that work done before the Fourth of July. The Beach Gate motors, chain drives, wheels and guides were repaired in July. The gate is opening and closing with ease. A huge thanks goes out to Kansas Door Co. and Mike Rothfuss for organizing the repairs. Currently, we are gathering information and bids to perform repairs on the boat ramp. Those repairs are complicated because the ramp is under water. Information on those repairs will be announced at a later time. Thank you to all boaters on Lake Sherwood this season. The lake has been peaceful with few boating incidents or violations. Boaters and members have more consistently followed and observed the SLC rules and policies. Management, the BOD and the lake patrol truly appreciates this. As a reminder, please remember to observe the no wake zones designated by the white and orange buoys on the lake. Thank you to all members for their efforts to keep our lake a safe and comfortable environment. The BOD asks that members be sure to register their personal watercraft. Remember that SLC boat registration is required. If you have questions about registration, please email myself at manager@sherwoodlakeclub.org or Joe Anderson at office@ sherwoodlakeclub.org. On a final note, I would like to extend a huge thanks to Jeff and Gayla Peterson and Annette Beck for their production and creation of the new electronic Sherwood Scene. Excellent work to all of you. I wish you and your families a wonderful fall season. Respectfully, Jeff Handley

Lake Sherwood Sailing Club

T

he Lake Sherwood Sailing Club held their 47th Annual Commodore Cup Sailing Regatta on Saturday, July 24. It was a beautiful hot day with 15 sailboats participating in the three races as the wind cooperated and made an appearance. Congratulations to this year’s top finishers below and to all of the sailboat racers for having the gumption and fortitude to get into the race with wind, water and other racers. First place: Al Hunt Second place: Bob Meinzer Third place: Bob Bobo Fourth place: Jo Hunt Thanks go out to our race committee of Jan and Stan Stegelman and Judy Bromich for running the races, to Jo and Al Hunt for hosting the dinner and awards banquet that evening and Melanie and Charlie Hoch for providing the midrace lunch at the beach shelter. We also thank Lake Manager Jeff Handley and the Lake Patrol for assisting and monitoring the race. We also want to tip our hat to all of the motor boaters for their leeway and courtesy as the sailboats were racing around the lake. We really appreciate that and would love some of you to join the sailing club to experience the thrill and excitement of sailboat racing. Your commodores, Joy and Jim Phelps

For Rent: Clubhouse and Pavilion

T

his is a reminder to all of our members that the clubhouse is available for rent, as well as the pavilion area at the beach.

The clubhouse has two gathering areas inside the building, as well as a kitchen area. You are able to set up and decorate the areas for social gathering such as graduations, family reunions, etc. or the area can be set up for small meetings with tables and chairs that are available for your use. Outside in the back of the clubhouse is an area to gather with a couple of picnic tables and even two horseshoe pits. The clubhouse rental rate is $100 for the day.

16 Sherwood Scene July-August 2021

Sherwood Lake Club divides the pavilion at the beach into two rentable areas: west half and east half. This is a great opportunity for the members of Sherwood Lake Club to reserve the area for some outdoor fun, such as birthdays and small gatherings while having direct access to the beach, as well as restrooms. One half of the pavilion rents for $25 for three hours (west half or east half), or you can rent the whole pavilion for $50 for three hours. To reserve the clubhouse or pavilion, contact Joe Anderson at 785.213.5449 or Jeff Handley at 785.221.3248.


Clean, Drain and Dry Summer 2021

E

arlier this year the Lake Quality and Environment Committee placed an article in the Scene that discussed Aquatic Invasive Species, in particular Zebra mussels. These mussels are native to Europe but were introduced into the Great Lakes probably from water used in freighters for ballast. Since their introduction the water in Lake Michigan has become increasingly clear and less healthy. This is the result of the crowding out of native mussels by Zebra and Quagga mussels that more rapidly reproduce and more efficiently exploit food resources. In particular, these invasive mussels filter out phytoplankton. Phytoplankton is the base of the food chain, serving as forage for small organisms and some juvenile fish which then become food for larger fish. Phytoplankton is an essential part of a healthy lake ecosystem. But phytoplankton also is what turns Lake Sherwood’s water a greenish tinge. See the accompanying article on lawn fertilization for a picture of overabundant phytoplankton. When introduced into a body of water, Zebra mussels quickly out compete the native mussels and, as these have few natural predators here in the USA, overpopulate the lake. Freshwater drum can consume Zebra mussels but not in quantities to eliminate populations. The Zebra mussels’ consumption of phytoplankton clears the lake but robs it of a healthy population of fish. Once the nutrients have been exhausted, the Zebra mussel population will experience a die-off event that leaves thousands of razor-sharp shells attached to docks, boats, propellers, underwater structure, etc. This makes swimming hazardous. Once established,

these are essentially impossible to eliminate from the lake. Lakeshore owners are faced with annual maintenance costs for managing the mussels. These costs can be upwards of $2,000/lot. To date, the Sherwood Lake Club has been both proactive and very lucky in keeping these invasive species out of the lake through the requirement to quarantine any trailered watercraft after removal from the lake and before relaunching. However, we have seen a proliferation of personal watercraft – paddleboards, paddle boats, kayaks, canoes, lily pads and towables. Any of these can be launched from a lakefront shoreline. No guest personal watercraft are allowed on the lake. While regulations are in place to address these watercraft, there is no way other than through the personal responsibility of Lake Club members and their ethical choices to prevent these from being launched without quarantine. Virtually ALL surrounding water bodies and waterways have Zebra mussels. The reservoirs are particularly infested but so are rivers downstream. Lake Shawnee has Zebra mussels. The veligers (larval mussels) are the size of hairs – essentially invisible to the naked eye. Even a small amount of water that is contaminated can be enough to introduce these into a virgin lake. continued on page 18

July-August 2021 sherwoodlakeclub.org 17


Clean, Drain and Dry Summer 2021 continued from page 17 Fortunately, the mussels do not tolerate drying out nor do they tolerate pressure-washing with hot water. The best way to prevent these from being introduced is to follow the practice of “CLEAN, DRAIN, and DRY!” The safest prevention is to use your personal watercraft ONLY on Lake Sherwood and never take these elsewhere. The next best alternative is to thoroughly clean your personal watercraft by powerwashing with hot water at least 120o F at the point of contact (preferably 140o F or higher) removing all vegetation, mud and debris from the exterior, the trailer, any bilge areas, any cockpits, any live wells, any transom wells, etc. Basically this means any area where water could collect. It is imperative that the drainage water from the washing not be allowed to flow into the lake. After thorough cleaning, the watercraft should be completely drained of all standing water and then dried out and left in the sun. The length of time left out of the water and in a dry state varies depending on the latitude where one lives. The Board of Directors is addressing the appropriate length of time for drying to occur. The Board of Directors has developed a reminder sticker that will be incorporated into the annual renewal process.

18 Sherwood Scene July-August 2021

The sticker reminds us to be vigilant with our personal watercraft so that we “DON’T MOVE A MUSSEL!” It is up to each of us to behave ethically and with personal responsibility to keep Lake Sherwood free of Zebra mussels.


Lake Health and Lawn Fertilization

T

he LQEC (Lake Quality Environment Committee) has done considerable research in an effort to educate ourselves so that we can pass on to our members, the “best practices” regarding the use of fertilizer/nutrient/ weed-control and other chemical applications. We have a diverse community of A & B members, non-members and upstream/drainage basin residents whose practices directly impact our lake quality. We all want beautiful and healthy green lawns with few weeds, and lawn care companies are eager to meet our expectations. Unfortunately, chemicals from lawn services and DIY sources along with other organic influences such as waterfowl fecal deposits and the natural decay of matter such as yard clippings and leaves all contribute to elevated nitrogen and phosphorous levels in our lake. Individual factors such as types of grasses, lawn topography, and shoreline conditions, make it difficult to offer specific advice. To protect our investment in both our family’s health and property values, it is in our best interest to exercise due diligence before applying chemicals to our lawns. So, how do I have both a green lawn and a healthy lake? Q. Is a soil test necessary to determine my fertilizer needs? A. Yes. This is an excellent first step, and fall is the perfect time to conduct such a test. Many lawn care companies provide this service for a nominal charge. The Shawnee County Conservation District also provides this service and in fact, has received a grant to fund a good number of residential soil tests. Call first to determine if grant money remains. After the grant money runs out, however, a single test is only $10-$15.50. Information obtained from soil testing can be used to customize a fertilizer and weed control plan. Allow three to four weeks for your soil test results to be received. Links to these resources are provided below. Q. Is there a recommended timeline for applying fertilizer? A. Yes. The most important feeding of the year is in the fall and should contain all three major nutrients; nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium. Lawns generally require more nitrogen than phosphorous and potassium. The fall feeding is critical for long-term turf health because it goes to the roots and over-wintering crowns of the grass plants. The fall application is not a threat to lake health if done at least four weeks before the ground starts freezing hard. There are also different needs for different varieties of grasses. Fescue and bluegrass are best fertilized in September and November with an optional application in May. Bermuda and zoysia grasses should be fertilized between May and August. Buffalo grass should be fertilized in June. Choose a quick-release nitrogen fertilizer in late fall and a slow-release nitrogen fertilizer for spring and early fall

applications. DO NOT APPLY fertilizers containing weed killers or insecticides unless they are needed. Q. Which applied chemicals can be detrimental to our lake? A. This is a difficult question to answer. The bottom line is that nitrogen and phosphates promote algae blooms and growth which can be detrimental to our lake quality. According to the KSU Extension Office, your yard should NOT need additional nitrogen or phosphates except in the fall. While applying such chemicals may help your lawn green up quickly, it can actually be detrimental your turf as well as to our delicate lake ecosystem. It is interesting to note that there are varieties of aquatic vegetation that are extremely beneficial to our lake and provide nursery opportunities and hiding areas for young fish. Some provide food for our varied wildlife species and act as effective filters and cleaners. There is a delicate balance between what is too much and not enough where plants and chemicals are concerned. The LQEC will continue to make recommendations to the Board and educate our members to our best ability.

Annette sent out the Scene schedule so all are aware of what is included in this edition, as well as future editions the rest of the year.

Jeff has received interest from several members about renting a slip at the marina that has not normally been rented in prior years. Jeff referred to this as slip “0”. After much discussion, it was determined that Jeff is allowed to use his best judgment in renting this slip out. However, he must contact all members who are on the waiting list for a slip to see if they want it first prior to giving it to someone who shows interest in the slip that is not on the waiting list. Beach dock was broke again due to ice storm, will have to take out 2-16’ sections to have fixed. May turn in to insurance depending on the cost that we are incurring. Repairs should be done and the dock put back in well ahead of July 4th celebrations. Jeff is planning on bringing in rock to cover up the pipe that runs out to the lake due to erosion and heavy rainfalls that have washed some of it out into the lake. Removing 2 of the planters that are on the wall that are causing rust on electrical boxes. Additional boxes may be removed after he works with Joy Dodd to make it look better and not so cluttered.

There was discussion about the ski show and the timing of the event. Jo will reach out to the group of members who participate in this event and get their input on the timing and incorporate that into the schedule for the holiday weekend. Additional discussion was held about the boat parade and safety concerns that have come to light over the last several years. There are a group of boats that participate in a water fight with water guns and balloons every year. Recommendation and communication to members will be made to wait until 1 full lap is completed by all boats prior to engaging in such activities. Safety is our #1 priority especially when several dozen boats are

By-laws: Nothing to report as she was absent for the meeting Membership: Nothing to report Scene: See update above Social: She is working on scheduling some upcoming events for the lake club members. This includes food trucks and social gatherings are restrictions around Covid-19 are loosened within our community. Fishery, Water Quality: Randy McAllister gave the presentation on behalf of Kevin Beck who was unable to be in attendance. Kevin Beck sent out an email regarding update on Dam Project/ fish study indicating the results of the study were far better than what we anticipated. In lieu of that study, Randy and the LQEC would like to relax some of the creel limits based on these results. This was discussed in depth, but at this time, creel limits will remain the same. New gate parts have been ordered, waiting to get installed; will provide more of an update on this next

Tracy:

Docks/Buoys/Boater Safety: Will work w/ Jeff on making sure buoys are 100’ off the shoreline. He is also going to work with Randy and the staff at FastSigns to come up with a new sticker to incorporate with our boat membership ID sticker that includes the slogan “Don’t move a mussel” to get the point across to membership that we have to take care of our water by making sure zebra mussels do not make their way into the lake. Finally, he is trying to come up with a good set of guidelines regarding pontoon boat restrictions. He is not sure what to go off of? He is currently using manufacturer specs to determine whether or not they qualify to be on the lake. He is going to work continued on page 32 with Mark and a few others to establish some guidelines and will have an update on their progress at the next meeting. Lake Quality Environment Committee Update by Randy McAllister – SID would like to sit down w/ Lake Club members and officers to have discussion about other options to the application that is put down to help with ice on the streets. Additionally, he believes we need to establish communication with Lake Vicaro to make sure we are all on the same page regarding zebra mussels. Their waterway contributes to our lake levels so we need to make sure we are all on the same page in keeping this species out of the water. He also mentioned that he believes we should have member education events for members to attend either in person and/or via zoom. Ideas that could be addressed would include getting stickers printed to hand out at various opportunities, t-shirt distribution, boat sticker distribution, etc. More on this to come as he works with Annette to possibly incorporate this into her social gatherings that are scheduled for the summer months. 4.

May 2021 Board Minutes continued from page 33 damage and what can be caused in the future. Similar work quoted by Bettis for the work that Schmidtlein is doing is over $11k. There was a lengthy conversation about installing a French drain at the beach to help take the water out of the parking lot. Nothing that is urgent to have done but will be needed over the next few months if we can determine what options we have and what needs to be done. Jeff will continue to monitor this situation and bring what options he believes we have without getting into the dam area that can’t be touched in the next couple of months. After discussion around the work that needs to be done at the beach from the recent rainfall we received, it was decided that Jeff, Mark, and Kevin would work together and get a more comprehensive quote and scope of work from Schmidtlein to ensure that the work we are wanting done will be included in the price he quoted. If that is received from Schmidtlein in a reasonable amount of time, they will sign off on the quote and let him begin work. A motion was made by Mark Wittenburg indicating an approval to use Schmidtlein for the repair work to the beach so long as it doesn’t exceed $7,000 in total costs and an acceptable scope of work is received prior to them starting the job. Annette Beck seconded the motion. Motion carried. Fannin Fabrication is currently working on the boat dock repairs. Total cost could be around 3-4K once work is done, which should be done in the next week or two. (f) DIRECTORS’ REPORT: Mark: Nothing to report Kurt:

Insurance: All policies have been paid. Assessment will be sent out on 7/1/21 and July of each year moving forward. Insurance claim was filed on the beach damage that was done. Beach beautification: Thanks to Teresa Oyler and Joy Dodd for their work on the flower baskets recently. Some of them have been removed to allow for more room for beach goers to sit on the wall with more comfort. Kurt has received a quote from Builders Bee to do the roof replacement work. Costs are estimated to be about $23k. No further action was taken on this item at the current time due to other matters that are being considered with the clubhouse.

Website: Nothing to address at this time By-laws: Aline has cleaned up the rental agreement for use both at the clubhouse and also the beach pavilion area. After discussion about security deposits and whether or not to increase them, it was decided to leave them as is for the time being. A motion was made to approve the new rental agreement by Tracy Lynch. Kevin Beck seconded. Motion carried. Aline also believes we should clarify the term limits a board member can serve for future purposes. After discussion was held, it was decided that one person can serve a max of 6 years and/or be elected no more than 2 times by membership at an annual vote. Such motion was made by Aline Barrett. Annette Beck seconded. Motion carried.

Kerry: Tracy:

Dam Update: He reported that there are now all 3 signatures on the FEMA application. Per his discussion with the State, funds will be deployed in the near future. He also reported that per Jason and B&G, phase 2 applications have been submitted for grant funding purposes. Fishery, Water Quality: Part of the information received from Midwest Lake Management was a map of the lake that indicates the depth of the water throughout the lake. This map is displayed in the clubhouse. Additionally, they have obtained a map that shows the composition of the lake bottom throughout the lake that was shared with members of the Board and those in attendance. On this map, there are markings that indicate where 15 samples were taken throughout the lake of the soil in those areas. The total cost to assess those samples would be around $2k-3k to be included in the sedimentation budget line item. Upon review of the fish study information that was obtained from the study earlier this year, it was determined that we need to address the large supply of crappie we have in the lake. It was discussed that we can get roughly 1,500 Stripper fish that will help with this problem. Costs associated with this are roughly $6,000. Annette made the motion to approve of this expense. Mike seconded. Motion carried. Nothing to report Docks/Buoys/Boater Safety: 2 shoreline approvals Handley – Dock design is modified, but with a smaller footprint than what was approved previously. Kevin made the motion to approve the modification. Aline seconded. Motion carried. Taggart – Mike Rothfuss made the motion to approve the shoreline improvement plans that he has submitted and discussed with Tracy Lynch. Annette Beck seconded. Motion carried. Dodd – Kurt Bossert made the motion to approve the boat dock modifications and additional arm of the dock that they have submitted and discussed in length with the Board and also more specifically Tracy Lynch. Annette seconded. Motion carried.

Lake Quality Environment Committee Update by Randy McAllister – No additional update other than what was discussed previously in the meeting. 4. OLD BUSINESS: (a) Drain connection to outlet tube under Nottingham – Nothing to report. (b) Finance/Budget & Membership Standing Committee – Nothing to report. (c) Lake Quality and Environment Committee – Nothing to report. (d) Bylaws/Rules Standing Committee – Rules update Tracy provided an update to the rules document that he would like to see implemented regarding boat length and overall size restrictions that need to be addressed. Updates to the guest boats and items that must be registered with the lake club are being modified to include personal watercrafts, as well as floating mats and inflatables that are used on the lake. These items are included in the same use restrictions as other boats and watercrafts previously included in the rules document. Updated verbiage just indicates that these items must be owned by lake club members or they are not allowed to be used in the lake. Regarding boat length limits on the lake, the overall length of the a watercraft and how to measure that watercraft was discussed at length. Tracy indicated that he is unsure about how to measure a boat and/or determine if it meets the specifications of our rules regarding boat size that is allowed on the lake. He is proposing a maximum length of 25 feet for any watercraft to be allowed on the lake. After discussion, it was decided to table this matter until a future meeting to determine what would work best for the majority of our members and what makes sense in determining the actual length of the boat that is needing to be decided upon prior to it being approved for use on our lake. For the time being, the board decided to let Tracy use his best knowledge regarding boat length restrictions on whether or not approve a boat for use on the lake. This will be discussed more in depth at a future board meeting. (e) Membership Directory – There will be a membership directory published prior to the end of the calendar year. 5. NEW BUSINESS: (a) Mission Township, SID, Lake Vicaro conglomeration to work on a variety of matters, share information with each other moving forward. More on this to come in future months. 6. ADJOURNMENT: There being no further business, the regular meeting was adjourned. The next regular meeting of the Board of Directors will be Monday, June 28, 2021. ________________________________ Aline Barrett, Corporate Secretary

No report as he was absent from the meeting 4th of July: She has secured a commitment from G’s Frozen Custard to provide custard for the ice cream social this year due to Sheridan’s not able to work with us this year. She brought up fireworks donations and asked for some help from the other board members to reach out to members who had donated in prior years. The list of donors from 2020 was reviewed and board members indicated who they would reach out to and let Jo and also Joe Anderson know if any additional donations would be made to help offset this expense. A banner will be made by Fast Signs again this year. It will be on display at the beach starting on Friday, July 2 for the remainder of the weekend. Additional discussion was had about preparation for the holiday festivities and what help could be provided from other board members throughout the weekend. Website: Nothing to address at this time By-laws: There was discussion about the by-law change from the prior month meeting where it was voted and approved to limit the number of terms that a member could serve as a board member for the lake club. After more discussion regarding the by-law change that was passed, it was revised to allow a board member to serve no more than 8 consecutive years and/or be elected by membership no more than 2 consecutive times on the ballot.

Dam Update: They have the 3 signatures from FEMA. Budget will be prepared and once approved, funding will be provided to the lake club.

Kevin then indicated that Phase 2 has been stalled due to waiting for FEMA funds related to Phase 1, this will be addressed in the near future as the state will reach out to FEMA to discuss this funding and when we can expect it. The floor was then turned over to Kevin Holland w/ Cook Flatt & Strobel to discuss the relationship between SLC and Sherwood Improvement District. In attending meetings for both organizations, he indicated that SID would like to see improved communication between the two organizations, as well as provide communication to all residents within both jurisdictions. Communication used to be provided through the Sherwood Gazette, but that publication is no longer active. It was discussed about whether or not we would be able to communicate matters of importance to these residents of the surrounding community if we had a way to obtain their email addresses. This matter was tabled for another time and will be discussed once any changes to our website platform are complete.

June 2021 Board Minutes continued from page 37 Mr. Beck also mentioned that he believes that there are grant dollars available for dredging if the dam is up to par; we can discuss this moving forward and seeing if this is an option for us once the work on the dam is complete. An update was given surrounding the Sedimentation project that is being made regarding the clean out of the drainage areas throughout the community that all lead to the lake. The Sediment Basin #3 is the worst of all of the basins around the community that flows down into Sherwood Lake. They have obtained a bid from Schmidtlein that indicated they could do the cleanout and repairs of this basin for $24,000. Kevin and Mr. Beck will work more with them to get an official quote on the work and scope of the project that we can evaluate and decide on a future meeting. Regarding the soil testing that needs to be done around the lake at various spots of the lake bottom, it was discussed and brought to the table to engage the Mission Township Fire Department who would use their equipment to dive down and obtain samples from various spots throughout the lake bottom. Information we received from the bathymetric study done earlier this year will help in determining where samples should be taken from based on the composition of the lake bottom. Sampling costs should be around $4k to $5k, which is in line with the budget item that was approved for this expense of $4,000. A motion was made by Annette Beck to allocate $5,500 ($500 as a donation to Firefighter Association) as an expense to help obtain samples for the sedimentation study. Mike Rothfuss seconded the motion. Motion carried. Finally, Kevin Holland indicated that based on developments related to a few members and their shoreline improvement projects have shed some light on the approval process required to make changes to a shoreline and the necessary steps that a member may need to take in order to remain in compliance with both SLC and State of Kansas. It was mentioned that any shoreline improvements that require approval from DWR can take 3-4 months to get the necessary approval and permission to make changes to the member property prior to any work being done on your property. A checklist of what steps need to be done by members will be put together and provided to membership in the next couple of months. Kerry: Tracy:
