Notice of Public Meeting

The next regular meeting of the WWMD Board will be held on Thursday, June 25 at 7:00 pm.

Lake Management Plan

After almost two years, our new Lake Management Plan has been approved by the DNR. The plan is a guide for how we organize and execute our activities within the waterway for the next ten years. It does not mandate what we do. In other words, because something is in the plan does not mean that we have to do it. Rather, it provides guidance for when we do decide to do something. Permanent links to the Lake Management Plan and Appendices are on the Planning Committee page.

Commissioner News

Dave Spurlock has retired as a commissioner on the WWMD board and will be shortly moving out of the district. He has agreed to stay engaged for the next few months helping with the newsletter. Dave has had a big hand in the workings of the district in the 5 plus years he has been a commissioner. We would like the thank Dave and Jan for his years of service to the district. We wish him much luck on this move and hope he will stay in touch.

Scott Uhler

To replace Dave, Scott Uhler has been appointed to the board. An attorney in Illinois, he is a partner at Klein, Thorpe and Jenkins, Ltd. He serves as general counsel to several municipalities, and his work extends to a variety of municipal, educational, library, election and other local government-related law matters. He is a speaker, author, Professor/Lecturer and has drafted state legislation. Scott is a native of Wisconsin and feels fortunate to maintain his roots in the state as a member of the Waterford community.

Chad Buchaklian

Another new commissioner is Chad who joined the Board in late November and has been chairing the Aquatic Plant Management committee since. Chad has a degree in landscape architecture and an MBA. He is a manager at Breezy Hill Wisconsin where he handles bid submittals involving municipalities, commercial and residential projects, deals with state regulations, oversees the wholesale group and has a hand in the management of a 1,500 acre nursery. Chad lives on the lake with his wife and two young daughters. They enjoy boating, water sports, and fishing. In his free time Chad restores antique and classic cars, and he enjoys hunting every chance he gets.

Jack Miller

Jack was elected commissioner at the last annual meeting, and is serving as secretary. Jack and his wife have been homeowners on the northeast end of Lake Tichigan for 15 years. He ran for commissioner because the waterway is very important to him and his family. Now that he’s retired, he has time to take an active role. Jack retired from Grainger after 26 years in the IT area, working on many projects, from individual process improvements and/or development through software implementations. This required planning, coordination, detail and teamwork. Jack’s interests include boating, guitar, and history.
