LAKE WATERSHED MANAGEMENT PLAN
– 9:00 P.M.
RIDGE ROAD, AURORA, NY
Introductions, Approval of Minutes
The Technical Committee laid out a process for prioritizing watershed issues
last Spring. IO Representatives have been working with their municipal boards
to identify and rank priority watershed issues over the summer. An update of
the process and results to date will be provided. IO members will be asked to
provide input on the future direction of the issue prioritization process.
The IO and the Network held a joint meeting in Aug. to help clarify existing
misconceptions and to increase the effectiveness of their joint efforts. After
a brief discussion of the Aug. meeting, a final call for members to the
IO’s Joint Strategy Committee will be made. Input from IO
Representatives will solicited regarding how this Joint Committee should
– 8:00 Use of IO Member Contribution Funds
IO members have been asked to contribute $900 to help support local match
requirements of the third year of the DOS contract. An update on the total
funds collected will be presented along with some suggested uses for those
funds. IO Representatives will be asked to reach an agreement on how those
funds will be used.
– 8:20 Future of the IO
We are currently in the 3rd-year of the Cayuga Lake management-planning
project. DOS funding for the IO will run out at the end of this year.
Although we now have an official set of bylaws, additional institutional
arrangements must be formulated to insure the continuation of the IO and the
implementation of the management plan. IO Representatives will be asked to
discuss the future of the IO and ways to insure its existence past publication
of the management plan.
– 8:30 IO Meeting Dates and Times:
As we move into the final stages of management plan development, IO
Representatives will be asked to step up their municipal representation
activities. It is critical that we maintain the strongest IO meeting
attendance possible. This will be an opportunity to discuss conflicting time
demands that may result in lower than optimal meeting attendance and make
changes as necessary to our traditional meeting schedule of the fourth Wed. of
each month. We will also discuss extending meeting times during the strategy
development phase to maximize municipal input and understanding.
