2009 Annual Meeting

June 6th, 2009

10am Holiday Harbor Campgrounds

Motion for the Nomination and Election of Officers and Directors for 2009. Seconded by Gene Drasler. All present voted Yes to elect officers nominated. After meeting, Diane Banks volunteered to be our Secretary on the Board.

Donna Siegfried Treasurer spoke on finances- BSBIA finances are in best shape they have been in a long time. Current balance is over $14,000. Monte Carlo night last year netted $3,004.46. Three channel digs last year cost $7,160; $2070 and $1517.50. Shady Shores Bingo group donated $1,039 from their game proceeds last year! Donna is running 50/50 raffle with left over tickets from 2007- Drawing to be held Labor Day

Chris Lee spoke about the channel opening and DEC permits. Dates, our heavy equipment operators-estimated 3 eight hour days to open channel, it may take longer due to stone build up on East Side and hole filling up- this may require a drop dig at a cost of $8,000.00 to $10,000.00 for first opening. Scheduled maintenance digs through the summer may be needed, cost depends on amount of hours and stone build up. Permits are all in order and DEC has been notified of planned dig. Because of the lead time to apply for replacement permits coming due, Chris will start the process 9 months early.

Rick Passero, PE, donated his time and drafting plans for a permanent channel- DEC has tentatively approved plans, waiting for final stamp of approval from Army Corp and DEC- Next steps will be funding � Looking into Obama stimulus money , Great Lakes Commission money and Army Corp funding- Need to look at all options to see what money is available and plan accordingly

Discussed the problems some residents are having with seasonal flooding and property damage. The channel in off season opens and closes naturally. Spoke of doing small maintenance digs with backhoe off season. There was a motion put on the floor and passed with no one opposed to do off season maintenance digs. Chris will look into cost to assure less erosion and damage to break walls and property- There has been discussion on raising the lake level two feet to help with the shipping industry and the hydro power plants at present the plan is to keep lake level status quo

Tom spoke on behalf of Chris Lee about Shady Shores septic systems. Someone complained that Shady Shores was polluting the Bay after seeing a 2 year old DEC posting for a permit renewal on the septic systems. The DEC and the health department have deemed Shady Shores septic systems to be in proper working order. The smell and flumes have been caused by dead vegetation. The DEC Email is posted on our site.

Kim Park, Town of Wolcott Supervisor, spoke on Wayne county weed harvesting- scheduled for July- Wayne County water authority oversees weed harvesting- any complaints on weed harvesting are to be directed to Tom Agnello

Marty Amen WCWA director spoke on the 4 bay sewer study, possible sewer hook-up for our bay or at least the east side and water hook up for West Side of Blind Sodus bay and the interest by home owners, pump stations, future funds to fund projects, Etc. Expected cost are hope to be more in line with the charges that Fair Haven residents are paying and hopefully not as high as was indicated in the survey sent out from the Town. Looking at annual fees for both capital payoff and annual maintenance of approximately $700 to $1,000 per year

Kim Park- spoke on grant monies, mailings or letters to county requesting your interest in projects-i.e.: permanent channel, sewers, water- VOICE YOUR OPIONION

Propositions- proposed budget spending, accounting fees and document filings to become Official Corporation � more funds maybe available. Voted to spend $1500 to become 501c3 non-profit and to file paperwork with Federal Gov�t and to spend $600 per year for tax returns. All believed that this will have an excellent ROI down the road as we look for grant money.

Web Site-BSBIA to pay fees associated in keeping Web site up and running- Post events on calendar page- Had 1000 hits in the month of May and half that already this month- WEB SITE ADDRESS —WWW.BSBIA.org

We will try to have an events page set up on the website so that all activities in the area can be posted for viewing.

There will be no Monte Carlo Night this year unless we get a lead volunteer. Someone offered assistance after the meeting and Tom will follow up to get them acquainted with MC Night.

In lieu of MC night, we will try to promote SS and HH bingo nights on the website. Please attend and support them. Also, you MUST sign in at both camp sites before you drive to the bingo area in their pavilions.

Subject: Shady Shores Campground

Mr. Agnello:

My colleague completed his inspection of the above referenced facility on Friday and found the wastewater treatment system to be in good working order. He inspected the pumps, the history of septic tank pump-out, the leachfield, and all other treatment work appurtenances. All were in fine working order. He also examined the records of monitoring and sample testing, and these records indicated that all discharge pollutants were within the allowed parameter limits as per the SPDES permit. The discharge water into the Bay was clear, with no turbidity.

The Cayuga Health Dept. has also been informed of the findings from this inspection.

I suspect that the algal forms that you have seen and smelled are due to non-point source runoff from agriculture or other point sources on the western side of the Bay. Our investigation, however, indicates that Shady Shores is not the cause of these blooms.

Sincerely,
