Lake Operations Committee

Charter: This committee will assist the LLPOA Board of Directors by providing recommendations for increasing revenue and decreasing costs. The committee will review our current state of operations to determine opportunities for increasing revenue through existing sources, as well as develop new revenue sources and decreasing costs through increasing efficiency, eliminating obsolete processes, reviewing vendors/suppliers and maximizing labor.
