VEHICLE STICKERS - In May 2012, legislation was passed allowing the placement of vehicle stickers on the windshields of the vehicles of permitted service providers. Starting on July 1, 2012 permitted service providers may place the stickers on their windshields.


LAKE SERVICE PROVIDERS:

You will need a DNR permit if your business receives payment to put "water-related equipment" into or remove it from waters of the state of Minnesota for another person or another business.

Here is complete information on training classes for 2015:

If you live on Big Detroit, Little Detroit or Deadshot Bay:

LAKE DETROITERS STRONLY URGES HOMEOWNERS TO CONTRACT WITH A DNR PERMITTED LAKE SERVICE PROVIDER TO MOVE BOATS, DOCKS, PONTOONS, LIFTS AND OTHER WATER-RELATED EQUIPMENT.

It is NOT recommended to relocated a dock or lift during the summer months without taking extreme precautions.  BY LAW such water equipment must be out of the water for at least 21 days to prevent the spread of AIS. Due to the ability of AIS to survive in the internal construction, it is very risky.  That is how nearby Rose Lake in Otter Tail County became infested with Zebra Mussels.  The safest is to buy new or freezing over winter kills all AIS.
  Take the precaution - not the risk!
