- Presidents Report: Spoke with Steve Kaplan, no resolution on Westacres docking. Steve
Kaplan assured that this is a legal position that they will not lose. Because of this Jeff does not
think MSLIA should intervene. Beacon may write another article as many complained about
the blatant one-sided view they presented. Motion by Greg, 2nd by Bob: Engage Gerald Fisher
to file an intervention on behalf of MSLIA in the Westacres v West Bloomfield Township Board
of Zoning Appeals, with cost not to exceed $10,000. After discussion the vote was 7,0,2 –
Motion carried. Motion by
Jeff, 2nd by Greg: Assess $62.50 per household and $0.50 per beach member effective
January 2023, Amendment by Sara 2nd by Greg: No assessment will be levied in the event that
Westacres pays full back dues. Both Motions carried unanimously.
