Rogers Lake Weed Study Committee

Excerpt from the Roger Lake Authority Minutes 11/18/2014:

Weed Control for Rogers Lake
First Selectman Ralph Eno stated that the Lyme Board of Selectmen do not wish to do any more treatment using organic measures as it does not work.  Both Towns have spent a lot of money to date and if you want to control the weeds, it is important to implement an herbicide program.  The Lyme Board of Selectmen would like to get a proposal (RFP) from a licensed company for such an herbicide treatment plan.  They suggest forgoing a study at this point and move forward on this plan as soon as possible.

There was also discussion about issuing a Request for Proposal for engineering firms for solutions. First Selectwoman Reemsnyder presented reasons why the RFP should include more than one option.  

There was a discussion about including the cost of other alternatives in the RFP therefore providing the public with the information they should have. Having a Comprehensive Management Plan in place was also discussed.

It was determined to form a small group of people from those present (First Selectwoman Reemsnyder, First Selectman Eno, a member of the Rogers Lake Authority) and additional members coming from the Conservation Commissions of both Lyme and Old Lyme and a member of the Inland / Wetlands Commission of Lyme.  The first responsibility of the group will be to put together an RFP or RFQ by no later than January 15, 2014, but sooner if possible.
