Hello Jennie,

I'm happy to report that the Operations Advisory Committee held a = special meeting this afternoon regarding Lake Ann and has unanimously = arrived at a budget cost for breaching the lake's dam, which is in poor = condition. Draining the lake and removing the dam this year alleviates = the danger of serious downstream flooding and resultant siltation into = Governor's Run and the Bay in event of a catastrophic failure brought on = by heavy rains.

We propose for 2015 that the Community set aside $11,000.00 for the 2015 = Lake Ann takedown activity which will likely occur during the winter = and/or early spring months. To a construction fixed bid of $7500.00 = (simply to breach the dam and push the spoils aside with heavy = equipment) we have added a contingency to cover unexpected problems in = draining the lake as well as stabilization of the lake bottom and other = issues that may arise which are not covered in the construction bid.

Best regards,

Tay Vaughan
For the Operations Advisory Committee
