Supervisors Meeting Page
In April 2009 project coordinator Rolf Tiedemann at the request of C. Mosses- Chairperson, D. French- Town of Crown Point Supervisor, and R. Dedrick- Town of Ticonderoga Supervisor met with the Essex County Board to seek their support through resolution to support the efforts to utilize the herbicide renovate as part of a "Full Tool Box" (all available methods) spot treatment for the control of milfoil. This support resolution was sought to build consensus as part of bringing interested parties together for Eagle Lake's herbicide permitting process.

This page has the final resolution, a compiled meeting agenda and handouts file, along with each section of the compiled document broken out as separate files.
