Peter outlined the status of Lake Carmi – this cleanup work has been two years in the works; thanks to the Franklin Watershed and Lake Carmi Campers Association (LCCA)  for all their hard work to get our lake status as a “Lake in Crisis”.  Thank you to VT DEC, LCCA and all the other entities involved in choosing EverBlue Lakes to be the contractor to complete the project.  EverBlue Lakes has been very helpful in explaining the project and hopefully this will be a step in the right direction in the long term health of Lake Carmi. 


Peter turned over the floor to John Tucci from EverBlue for his presentation of the system and its operation.  John stated that he will be supervising the operations for two years and training community members in the supervision of the aeration system.  John opened the floor for questions from those in attendance. 



Yvon D/Dave B made a motion to adjourn the meeting. Vote taken; all in favor; motion carried. Meeting adjourned at 8:08 p.m.


Respectfully submitted,

Lisa Larivee, Town Clerk
