Discussion of List of Priorities to Present to Hominy City Council
The following ideas were discussed at this meeting.
· Lake Clean-up and Tree Trimming
· Restroom Repair
· Playgrounds improvement
· Establishment of new uses for common areas. Ideas included frisbee golf course, swimming area, additional RV sites with electrical hookup and additional picnic tables.
· Designate a lake monitor: this discussion concluded with the decision that Josh Toon would ask the Police Chief and the City Manager if he, Josh Toon, could act as the lake monitor as part of his duties as a Hominy Police Officer. In other words, could Josh Toon be assigned Hominy Lake as his patrol in his capacity as a Hominy Police Officer. Josh will inquire of the City Manager and Police Chief, and report back to the committee. Josh Toon will also ask the Police Chief if he can write citations for lake violations. He will ask the Police Chief to designate a title for his work at the lake if the Police Chief approves the idea. This monitor could enforce the existing lake rules. The idea of reminding lake lot renters of the existing rules was suggested.
· Writing a cover letter to remind lake lot renters of the existing lake rules was suggested and approved by unanimous vote. Once the letter has been drafted, the group will review it in a future meeting and if approved it will be sent to lake lot renters with a copy of the existing lake rules.
· Establishment of lake office and an RV site designated for an on-site caretaker in areas not currently being utilized for any purpose. Having a bait shop was suggested.
· Hannah Hawkins mentioned that she is in charge of the Fourth of July Fireworks celebration at Hominy Lake in her capacity as Secretary of the Hominy Chamber of Commerce.
· Hannah Hawkins mentioned that she is administrator/creator of a Facebook page called Hominy Lake Community.
Because this was the first meeting there was no report.
