Report of Island Manager:  Vic Richards reported increased traffic on the ferry this year. Island Manager recommended to join COGS at a cost of $750.00—some of the benefits were bulk buying, town planning, and use of a meeting room with minimal cost. The water system has a new water pump and the Golf Course has a new pump for the irrigation system. We are using more water filtering bags then expected because of the algae in the lake water. The town is now issuing car registrations, boat registrations, hunting & fishing licenses. We had an Osha inspection. Fire Dept may need hepatitis shots. Long Beach—Swim buoys have been cut loose, fires on the beach, trashing beach, and manager recommended quiet hours to curb these activities. Need to approve SAD 6 assessment payment.
