Mille Lacs Fisheries Advisory Committee (MLFAC) will meet from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Monday, Aug. 12, at Izatys Resort, 40005 85th Ave., Onamia. The agenda will cover an open water season update and a lake management planning discussion.

Members of the public may observe MLFAC meetings, but these meetings serve primarily as a way for the committee to hold group discussions. Fifteen minutes are reserved for public comments and questions.

The committee has been active since October 2015. Its purpose is to advise the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) on the State of Minnesota’s fisheries management program for Mille Lacs Lake.

PERM encourages its members, and concerned citizens to attend. The agenda’s Lake Management Planning discussion may include what the DNR heard at three recent Community Meetings on Mille Lacs.” If you did not attend, see PERM’s take on a report about one of those meetings (click on the “Report: DNR gets input on Mille Lacs” title below). Remember, there are 15 minutes reserved for public comments and questions.
