The Devils Lake Water Improvement District Board of Directors is seeking to fill a recent vacancy on its Board of Directors. Long time member, Smokey Aschenbrenner has recently resigned from the board, creating the vacancy. Smokey has served on DLWID’s board since his appointment in March 2002, filling a vacancy left at the time by Lynn Hermo. He was then elected to the position in 2003 and again in 2007. Within his over seven years worth of service to the Board, Smokey has served as Chair, Vice Chair, and most recently as Secretary/Treasurer. Longtime friend and fellow board member, Otis Winchester, said recently, “Smokey’s calm insight and experience will be missed on the board. Not only has he been a valuable member to the District, but has served the city in a number of ways including being mayor and as a member of the Lincoln City Lions Club.” Otis who has served on the board for six years himself was elected Secretary/Treasurer for the remainder of the fiscal year.

A group of community members who reside within the Devils Lake Water Improvement District (DLWID) are questioning whether cyanobacteria blooms, blue-green algae that has the potential to release harmful toxins, are really an issue for the Lincoln City lake, and suggest that Lake Manager Paul Robertson’s testing procedures may be inaccurate. The group, which maintains a website at www.nosolarbees.com, has asked the board to abandon plans to install 20 SolarBees, solar-powered water circulation devices meant to combat blue-green algae. The cost of the project tops $1 million.

Quite a crowd turned out at the April DLWID board meeting upset about a pending decision on the summer lake level. Most were upset because they new nothing about their review and proposed change. Until recently, the only visibility related to the SolarBee project was buried in the meeting minutes.
We’d like to know what you know about the DLWID SolarBee project. Take a moment an participate in our first couple of polls. Feel free to elaborate by leaving a comment. The results of all polls taken on this site will be posted on the Polls page. Thanks for your help.
Recently a few comments were made on the Maps page. It was not our intent to allow comments on pages other than the Report your Findings page. Our mistake for leaving that feature on. So as not to lose the comments we have converted them to this post. I the future comments will be limited to posts.
