HOMEOWNER FORUM – PUBLIC COMMENT
Jeff Sirt asked if WSPC annual membership dues are mandatory. Answer: Yes – dues are mandatory. Non-payment may result in fees being added and the possibility of eviction as a final measure as the result of non-payment or partial payment. (Any difficulty in paying the membership fee in full should be discussed with the WSPC Treasurer and Board prior to the due date.)
Jeff Sirt asked if there were plans to dredge the channel at all. Answer: The channel is the responsibility of the Mundelein Park District and the concern should be reported to Ron Salski. The channel sea walls are the responsibility of the homeowners along the channel.
CORRESPONDENCE An email was received from a member to request barring another member access to WSPC beaches and parks following an incident that involved police action. It was confirmed that members cannot be barred from using WSPC property per the WSPC By-Laws and that the incident is being handled by the proper authorities.

REVIEW OF TASKS LIST Review and discussion of the Board and Officers Task List.
NEW BUSINESS There was a report of a home that may have trees that may be encroaching into the road right of way. Board members will inspect the trees to determine if any action is necessary. Werner Brisske reported that he received a report of a tree in block 2 that fell. Board members will inspect the tree to determine if the tree is WSPC responsibility and if any action is necessary. A report was received of what appeared to be “black sludge” along a section of seawall in block 2. The reported area is managed by Mundelein Park District and they will be informed of the issue.
OLD BUSINESS Fremont Township Highway Commissioner Alicia Dodd reported that the location finding project for buffalo boxes (BB) in WSP is underway. The GIS (Geographical Information System) map will be made available to the WSPC board as items are added or updated. Anomalies have been noted. There will be a future discussion regarding testing, possibly raising buried BBs above street level, and the possible disconnection of unused BBs.
Minaxi Tailor moved that the meeting be adjourned. Werner Brisske seconded the motion. Unanimously approved. The meeting was adjourned at 7:50 p.m.
