The Crow Wing County Commissioners has unanimously approved the Sibley Lake Improvement District!!!

We will now begin the process of forming a separate LID Board to manage the Lake Improvement District. The board will consist of not more than 6 board members of the Sibley Lake Association and at least 3 riparian lot owners who are not members of the board.

A special mailing will go out this summer to all riparian property owners on Sibley lake explaining the LID process and requesting volunteers and nominations for those who are willing to serve on the LID board.

The Association Board welcomes your input and will provide additional information at the annual meeting. We ask that you contact Dave Lind at 218-568-6715 with any questions or if you are interested in serving on the LID Board.

The Crow Wing County Board of Commissioners has now scheduled the public hearing to discuss the Sibley Lake LID. This meeting will be held 9:45 a.m. on Tuesday, April 22, 2008 at the Brainerd Historic Court House, 326 Laurel Street in the third floor Board Room.

December 12th, 2007
During the public hearing it was decided that the decision on the LID should be delayed until the March 25th meeting in order to complete some paperwork and give the public more time to respond to the proposal. Since we are without funding next year in any case this should have no impact on our longer term efforts.

November 18th, 2007
Our next step is a public hearing, which is scheduled for December 11th at the Crow Wing County courthouse. The agenda is not yet confirmed but you can obtain a schedule a few days before the hearing by calling the county auditors office at 218-824-1045.

Note: At this point since since the public hearing process will take until December we will not be able to assess funds until 2009 which will make them available in 2010. Therefore, we will be sending out mailings for donations again this year in the spring in order to continue our lake management plan in the meantime until these new funds become available.

November 13th, 2007
We have obtained the required number of petition signatures to submit our LID application! The Crow Wing County board was presented with our application to continue the process of establishing a Lake Improvement District (LID) for Sibley Lake and the application was approved.
