7:00 – 9:00 P.M.


7:00 – 7:05 Welcome, Introductions, Approval of Minutes

7:05 – 7:20 Issue Prioritization : 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.

7:20 – 7:40 IO/Network Joint Committee: 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 proceed.

7:40 – 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.

8:00 – 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.

8:20 – 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.
