From the Pierce County Executive

Working together for Lake Tapps By Pierce County Executive Pat McCarthy

L

ake Tapps is one of the treasures of Pierce County, and I am proud of the community interest and involvement in its successful management.

Pat McCarthy Pierce County Executive

My administration continues to work with Cascade Water Alliance and other stakeholders to balance the primary mission of water management with the interests of those who live near the lake or use it for recreation. As we discussed at a community forum in January, lake management is a partnership. Every one of us can play a role and have a voice. I was heartened by the level of participation at the forum. It was another reminder that

Pierce County is home to livable communities that understand and appreciate the need to provide public safety, good transportation systems and diverse parks and recreation opportunities. Pierce County works hard to protect those values and continually improve the quality of life for its citizens. Lake Tapps is a regional jewel, and it is home to one of the most popular county parks - Lake Tapps North Park. The 80acre site includes approximately 10,000 feet of waterfront access and is a popular swimming and boat launch area. The park also contains nearly three miles of natural trails, which are popular with walkers, dog owners, bird

watchers and nature lovers. The lake is one of the top outdoor destinations in Pierce County, and I am committed to working with our partners to protect this integral part of our community. I hope you find this guide to be very helpful. I wish everyone a happy, healthy and safe summer at the lake.

Dear Lake Tapps neighbors C

ascade completed its first year of owning and operating Lake Tapps in 2010 -- an honor, a privilege and a challenge. That is why we initiated an effort with the community -- individuals, groups and agencies with responsibilities around this magnificent regional gem. Our goal is to ensure that Lake Tapps remains a safe, clean and enjoyable resource well into the future.

489572

To that end, Pierce County, Cascade Water Alliance, the cities of Auburn, Bonney Lake, Buckley and Sumner, and other key governments and jurisdictions who share responsibility for Lake Tapps, an open public process with the Lake Tapps community from late November to early spring to develop a balanced perspective on management of

Lake Tapps.

Some issues we can solve together. Others will take our best collective thinking and out of the box solutions. We are committed to serving our communities and involving them in the solutions. Cascade’s primary focus as owner of the lake is water supply and meeting the conditions of the agreements we’ve established: Lake Tapps (lake levels), Tribal (stream flows) and Washington State (water rights). Our partners have other responsibilities, such as recreation and enforcement which are beyond the scope of Cascade’s mission and responsibilities. Homeowners and lake users have a key role, too. The responsibility of keeping Lake Tapps a safe, clean, enjoyable community jewel belongs to all of us. Our collaborative effort forms a strong basis for lake and

Lloyd Warren, Chair Cascade Water Alliance area operations, safety and maintenance today and into the future.

Pierce County Boat Management Plan In 2005 Pierce County adopted the Lake Tapps Boat Management Plan to address the increase in use of the lake and the correlating decreases in the quality of the lake environment, recreational experiences and an increase in safety issues related to boating conflicts. The Lake Tapps planning effort did not reevaluate that plan but referred to it in issues it had already addressed. The Lake Tapps management plan adds to or builds on its comprehensive work. For more information on the boat management plan visit: www.co.pierce.wa.us/cfapps/ EDocs/ViewDocument. cfm?did=40472&dnum=

Together, we are planning today for our lake’s future.

An open process means everything By Brennan K. Purtzer, Publisher Bonney Lake & Sumner Courier-Herald Several years ago and a world away from here, I had the opportunity to watch a large company try to bulldoze its agenda through a series of insincere public meetings that refused to recognize the community’s demands. The project cost several million dollars, and ultimately collapsed on its face. Then, last year I moved to The Plateau, and became involved with the Lake Tapps management plan. Here I witnessed a different company – Cascade Water Alliance – approach the Lake Tapps community as an equal partner to build a plan that would be 1) comprehensive and condensed, with 2) the shared goal of creating opportunities for world-class recreation, but had 3) the overall vision of keeping residents safe and unburdened by unnecessary rules. Throughout this process and the many, sometimes laborious meetings required to produce the lake management plan, there was mutual respect among participating parties and an obvious attention to address every idea, every comment, and every suggestion submitted by the public. This management plan is the very definition of public-private cooperation. I urge every person in the lake community to save the plan (included in the mid-section of this special publication), and read through it thoroughly. There is good information included, which would be wise to save as a reference sheet. Once you’ve read the plan and applied your sunscreen, I wish everyone a fantastic and safe summer out on the lake!

Believe it or not, Lake Tapps was not always a lake T

oday the lake is located just below the Pierce County northern border with King County and lies just to the northwest of Mt. Rainier. It is bordered by the City of Bonney Lake to the south and unincorporated Pierce County to the east, with the cities of Auburn and Sumner immediately to the west. Part of a plateau created during the glacial period, Lake Tapps used to be four separate natural lakes prior to damming in 1911 creating the Lake Tapps reservoir. Fed by the White River, Lake Tapps has an irregular shoreline and contains several small islands scattered throughout. The Pacific Coast Power Company constructed the White River Power Plant, a hydroelectric facility on the White River, from 1909 to 1911. Its water storage capacity was achieved by diking around four lakes on the Lake Tapps plateau, a product of the glacial period. The White River’s proximity to Mt. Rainier makes for a nearly constant flow of water, attracting the attention of early 20th century power engineers. Demand was high for additional electricity generation in the Puget Sound area in order to run the Interurban Railroad from Tacoma to Seattle. The White River Power Plant merged the four natural lakes into the Lake Tapps reser-

voir, used for hydroelectric power generation under Puget Sound Energy (PSE), until January 2004. PSE voluntarily ceased operations in 2004. While much of Lake Tapps’ history of use lies in its supply of energy to the region, it has also provided an abundance of recreational opportunity to the surrounding and nearby communities. As the largest lake in Pierce County and a popular summer boating destination, an estimated 250,000 people visit the lake each year for recreational pursuits, coming from nearby cities such

as Tacoma and Seattle. Recreational opportunities available at the lake include boating, water skiing, wake boarding, swimming, golfing, picnicking and fishing. Most of these activities are open to the public, and attendance numbers have seen a significant increase over the past decade. In December 2009, a multi-year purchase transaction process closed and Cascade Water Alliance became the owner of Lake Tapps and the White River property. Cascade continued with its

Continued from page 4 comprehensive, collaborative planning process with community stakeholders and local governments to ensure that Lake Tapps will be a significant component for the region’s water supply system over the next four to six decades and beyond. Lake Tapps will continue to be an integral resource to the region as a hub of recreation, restoration of endangered fisheries, and in the future, a key water supply source to help the region meet its water needs over the next several decades. Lake Tapps today is approximately 4.5 square miles (2,296 acres) in size with 45 miles of shoreline, designating it as a Shoreline of Statewide Significance in Washington. Lake Tapps is located within the White River sub basin, and has a maximum depth of approximately 89 feet and a mean depth of approximately 25 feet. The largest public access area on Lake Tapps is Lake Tapps North Park, located on the northern shore. Operated by Pierce County, it is an 80-acre park with 10,000 feet of waterfront access to the lake. A second public access area is located at the southern end of the lake, managed by the City of Bonney Lake. This park, known as Allan Yorke Park, is a 32-acre facility with 600 feet of waterfront access to the lake. The east side of the lake has the largest concentration of small islands and snags, making it a somewhat isolated in-water area due to its unique characteristics.

Meeting the community’s needs through a collaborative process T

o ensure that Lake Tapps remains a safe, clean and enjoyable resource well into the future, the entities surrounding the lake joined together in a collaborative effort to plan for its future. Pierce County, Cascade Water Alliance, the cities of Auburn, Bonney Lake, Buckley and Sumner, and other key governments and jurisdictions which share responsibility for Lake Tapps, began a neutrallyconvened public process with the Lake Tapps community in November 2010 to develop a balanced perspective on management of Lake Tapps.

All answers submitted

The public process to develop the Lake Tapps Management plan was conducted in just a few short months to ensure that implementable short-term strategies identified in the final lan could be put into practice in time for the 2011 recreational season.

News from the City of Sumner

The power of water By Sumner Mayor Dave Enslow

N

othing can unite or divide us as strongly as water. We come together in commonwealths (derived from the colonial term “common well”) and build settlements around watering holes. Or, we engage in horrible squabbles and even range wars over water rights. This dual nature of water is understandable since we must have it. Not even oil or gold or diamonds carry that kind of importance.

Dave Enslow Mayor, City of Sumner

secures our future water supplies and gets us working together. There’s no greater gift to Sumner’s future than an abundant water supply. You can help, too! While Cascade helps give Sumner a better long-term water supply, it does not release you and me from our responsibility to use water carefully. After all, the water in your drain and in your yard is part of the water system we all share. What can you do to keep it safe?

Thankfully, Cascade partnered with Sumner and indeed through water united a lot of communities from the cities in eastern King County to the neighbors right on Lake Tapps. Cascade better

— WATER TIPS — HOW TO USE LESS WATER • Turn off the faucet while brushing your teeth. • install low-flow plumbing fixtures. • Water your yard in the early morning when there’s less evaporation. • Consider taking showers instead of baths. • Plant annuals in bigger pots rather than smaller pots. Bigger pots reduce water lost to evaporation. • If you have a sunny yard, fill it with plants that love the sun rather than shade plants that will crave water.

HOW TO KEEP WATER CLEAN • Pick up pet waste. Letting it lay in the yard means the rain washes it right into our rivers. • Fix your car’s oil leaks. • Wash your car on the lawn or use commercial car washes to keep from sending your car’s grease into your own water supply. • Use fertilizer sparingly. All extra gets washed into your water supply. Try using mulch and compost instead. Sumner offers a free Class A biosolid called Bonney Good Sumner Enjoy great drinking water Grow at our Wastewater Treatment and help to keep it clean! Facility at the end of State Street. • Do not flush old medicine down the drain. Instead, drop it off at Sumner City Hall.

News from the City of Buckley By Buckley Mayor Pat Johnson

T

he City of Buckley is a territorial “heritage” community established in 1889 with an estimated 2010 population of 4,625. The community is located in the southern Puget Sound region, thirty miles east of Tacoma and near the foothills of Mt. Rainier and National Park. It is situated on the picturesque White River plateau and enjoys breathtaking mountain views. The area is known for its natural beauty and rural lifestyle and has become a favorite place for many to live, retire and visit. The city is, as the motto aptly states, Below the Snow, Above the Fog. The community’s proximity to this natural environment is largely responsible for the high value that our citizens place on protection and preservation of the natural processes. Protection of this environment contributes to a high quality of life by insuring adequate resources and a full range of recreational opportunities are available. The city looks forward to working with Cascade, Auburn, Bonney Lake and Sumner to identify and address any impacts to the White River watershed and Lake Tapps to insure that the natural environment and human communities thrive, now and in the future.

City of Auburn By Mayor Pete Lewis

T

he 70,180 citizens of Auburn, with almost 7,500 people living in Pierce County, have always been a part of the Lake Tapps community. From the earliest days of settlement through to the present we have identified with the people of the lake. Our high schools are open to the people that live around the lake. Many of the people who work in Auburn live near Lake Tapps. As the first President of the Tapps Island Association, I am familiar with the issues of the lake. But it’s more than that. Auburn’s great City Council has worked with the cities surrounding the lake for a decade to ensure that all the residents will have continued and improved access, drinking water and a recreational lake for the next 50 years.

Our citizens have been part of the process to save our lake and together we did just that in a brand new partnership with the cities of the lake and Cascade Water Alliance. Auburn considers Lake Tapps an addition to its many recreational assets with our parks, entertainment options and trails. A new and exciting chapter has begun. The cities of Auburn, Bonney Lake, Buckley, Sumner and the Cascade Water Alliance will work together to create a legacy for our children and the generations to come. www.auburnwa.gov

LAKE TAPPS MANAGEMENT PLAN EXECUTIVE SUMMARY • SUMMER 2011 L

tions, and provides information regarding existing rules and regulations. As part of the process, a list of roles and responsibilities was also developed and is outlined in Appendix I of the plan.

ake Tapps is located in Pierce County, Washington, approximately 30 miles southeast of Seattle. The lake lies just below the Pierce County northern border and to the northwest of Mt. Rainier, Washington’s largest mountain. Lake Tapps is bordered by the City of Bonney Lake to the south and unincorporated Pierce County to the east, with the cities of Auburn and Sumner immediately to the west. Lake Tapps, which serves residential and recreational purposes, is an important asset to nearby cities and counties and is enjoyed by thousands of people each year.

The plan, which is inclusive of real concerns presently faced on and around the lake, includes realistic and implementable strategies for addressing many, but not all of those concerns. As a result of limited resources or the inability to identify a lead, some issues and strategies within this plan would be difficult to implement by the 2011 recreational season. The Lake Tapps community should view this as an opportunity to get involved and invest in their community to make it a safer and more enjoyable place to live and recreate. This plan is a working document and is a first step towards improving management of the lake. Future endeavors that aim to build or expand upon this document to make future changes on and around Lake Tapps are highly encouraged by all those involved in the plan’s development.

In December 2009, Cascade Water Alliance purchased Lake Tapps from Puget Sound Energy (PSE) and became the new owner of PSE’s White River project, including the lake. Cascade now operates Lake Tapps. To ensure that Lake Tapps remains a safe, clean and enjoyable resource well into the future Pierce County, Cascade Water Alliance, the cities of Auburn, Bonney Lake, Buckley and Sumner, and other key governments and jurisdictions who share responsibility for Lake Tapps, began a neutrally-convened public process with the Lake Tapps community in November 2010 to develop the collaborative plan for managing Lake Tapps. Common issues in, on, and around Lake Tapps identified during the public process included: • Alcohol consumption and partying • Boat noise (engines, music, stereos, people) • Boat speed and number of boats on the lake • Education for lake users and residents • Enforcement • Fishing • Growth management and shoreline damage • Lake level • Maintaining property values and property owner rights • Milfoil, weed, and algae control • Noise • Parking • Pedestrian safety • Property owners not belonging to an HOA often have less of a voice than those that do belong to an HOA

• Public parks, usage and access • Quality of life • Regulating boat size and size of the wake • Safety • Stumps and stump removal • Tacoma Point is a gathering place for fireworks and encourages trespassing on private property

• Understanding roles and responsibilities • User enjoyment – making sure issues are managed in such a way that ensures people’s right to enjoy the lake is upheld • Water level • Water quality • Wildlife, animal, and habitat control including geese, nutria, eagles, and osprey

It’s Our Lake - Planning Together for Tomorrow

During January and February 2011, a working group brainstormed potential strategies and funding mechanisms to address common issues surrounding the lake in order to create the framework of the plan. Participants in the working group represented a broad range of stakeholder interests, including Pierce County Sheriff’s Department, Pierce County Parks Department, Pierce County Council, cit-

ies of Auburn, Bonney Lake, Buckley and Sumner, Cascade, Valley Regional Fire Authority, East Pierce Fire and Rescue, Lake Tapps Community Council, Lake Tapps homeowners’ associations (HOAs) and nearby businesses. The end of the five month process culminated with the development of this plan that includes an overview of the lake’s history, physical characteristics and current condi-

Responsibilities on and around Lake Tapps Existing ordinances, rules and regulations

L

ake Tapps is a reservoir constructed in the early 1900’s by Puget Sound Energy and now owned by Cascade Water Alliance. Caring for and managing Pierce County’s largest lake has taken collaboration amongst several agencies, communities and jurisdictions. The newly created Lake Management Plan provides clear and detailed information regarding the roles and responsibilities on and around Lake Tapps, as it exists under current law and/or agreements, ensuring effective enforcement and cooperation between multiple users and authorities. Enjoy Lake Tapps but do so responsibly and safely.

Public access and capacity Allan Yorke Park Allan Yorke Park, in the City of Bonney Lake, is operated by Bonney Lake and is open from 5:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. The boat launch fee at the park for non-residents is $17 per daily round-trip. Bonney Lake residents can purchase a launch card for $25 per year. The Park and boat launch is under the enforcement of the City of Bonney Lake Police Department. www.citybonneylake. org

Lake Tapps North Park Lake Tapps North Park is operated by Pierce County Parks and Recreation and is under the enforcement of the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department. The park features an improved boat trailer parking area, two new boat landing docks, and adjustments to improve traffic flow around the boat launch area. Regular park hours during the recreational season are 6:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m. The park is closed October 1st through March 31st. Parking and launch fees are $7 vehicle parking fee and $15 boat launch per daily visit. A combined annual boat launch and parking pass can be purchased for $75 (Pierce County residents) or $150 (non-residents): www.co.pierce. wa.us/pc/services/recreate/LakeTapps

Dikes (see page 11 for Dike Regulations) Cascade Water Alliance is responsible for structural maintenance of the dikes that form the Lake Tapps reservoir under regulation by the Washington State Department of Ecology Dam Safety Office www.ecy. wa.gov/programs/wr/dams/Contacts. Cascade determines the appro-

priate access and use of the dikes. Legally authorized access to the dikes is limited only to users and uses authorized by under easement, license, or other agreements. Policing and security of the dikes is enforced by either the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department or the Bonney Lake Police Department, under their respective criminal codes.

Boat Speed The Pierce County Watercraft Regulations make it unlawful to operate any vessel in excess of 60 mph on Lake Tapps. Enforcement of the Pierce County Watercraft Regulations falls under the jurisdiction of the Pierce County Marine Services Unit and the Bonney Lake Marine Services Unit. To report speed violators, dial the Pierce County Boating Hotline, 253.798.3300.

Habitat Fish and wildlife habitat in and around Lake Tapps is under the authority of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife. Existing regulations include federal law such as the Endangered Species Act and the state statutes on fish and wildlife.

Lake Levels Lake levels are maintained by Cascade under an agreement

between Cascade and the Lake Tapps Community. Generally, Cascade will maintain a Normal Full Pool (542.2 – 543.7 feet) during the Annual Recreational Period from April 15 to Sept.15. Check lake levels at www. cascadewater.org

Rafting Under the Pierce County Code, rafting in Lake Tapps, defined as connecting or tying two or more boats together, is currently illegal in any cove or channel or within 500 feet of shore on Lake Tapps, except in a designated area along Dike 4 near the Pierce County Park.

Water Quality The Washington State Departments of Health and Ecology regulates water quality issues for Lake Tapps.

Water Rights

Mandatory Boater Education The Washington State Mandatory Boating Safety Education Law requires boaters to pass a boating safety course or equivalent exam and to obtain a Boater Education Card before operating vessels with 15 horsepower or greater. Enforcement of the Washington State Mandatory Boating Safety Education Law is the responsibility of Marine Service Units (MSU) on Lake Tapps; including the Pierce County MSU and the Bonney Lake Police Department MSU.

Noise Boats are required to have proper muffler systems. For noise com-

Under water right permits issued to Cascade by the State Department of Ecology, Cascade diverts water from the White River into Lake Tapps, stores water in Lake Tapps, and, eventually, may withdraw water from Lake Tapps for municipal water supply purposes. Visit www.cascadewater.org

Access and use of dikes at Lake Tapps What are the 15 Dikes at Lake Tapps Reservoir? Fifteen dikes were built by the power company in the early 1900s to create Lake Tapps. Cascade is now responsible for the safe condition of all 15 dikes. Who can use Dikes 1, 2A, 2B, 3, 4, 11, 12, 14 & 15? • Access to these nine dikes is controlled by Cascade and they are closed to the public. Entry is considered trespassing. • Under a 1958 Easement, an owner of the property immediately adjacent to one of the nine dikes has the right to cross and re-cross the dike adjacent to the owner’s property to reach Lake Tapps to recreate in the water. • Adjacent property owners have been sent letters to remind them of their easement rights. If you have not received a letter, you

do not have an easement right. • If you think you should have received a letter but have not, please contact Cascade Water Alliance, 425.453.0930.

Owners must still contact Bonney Lake, Pierce County, the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, and/or the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for necessary approvals.

An adjacent property owner: • Cannot stay, build on or store recreational equipment or toys on the dikes. • May be able to build in the water in front of the dikes with a Cascade issued license. Cascade now owns the lake bed and allows only the same activities that were allowed under the 1954 Deed, such as: - boat, swim, fish, moor floats or drive stakes for mooring floats, boats, boathouses. - build docks on pilings only, remove trees, bushes and growth. - dredge and dispose in a lawful manner.

It’s our lake

Who Can Use Dikes 4A, 5, 6 & 7? • Access and use is controlled by Pierce County through the Pierce County North Park at Lake Tapps. http://www. co.pierce.wa.us/pc/services/ recreate/LakeTapps.htm Who can use Dikes 8, 9 and 10? • Access and use is controlled by Puget Sound Energy through the Puget Sound Energy Camp at Lake Tapps. Who can use Dike 13? • Cascade Water Alliance and the City of Bonney Lake are in the process of developing a partnership to allow additional park space while assuring the integrity of the dike.

Play it safe on the water this summer Summer is the perfect time to enjoy our local lakes and rivers. It’s also important to remember to take a few precautions to remain safe in or around the water. Lake Tapps is a regional gem - boaters, residents and recreational enthusiasts are encouraged to use it safely and responsibly.

Life Jackets Save Lives The best way to keep everyone safe near water is to wear a life jacket. If you don’t have one, East Pierce Fire and Rescue offers a discount on life jackets that includes a free fitting. They can be purchased at the headquarters station in Bonney Lake, located at 18421 Old Buckley Highway, for $14 and are available in infant, child, youth and adult sizes. Need extra life jackets for guests? No worries. East Pierce Fire and Rescue offers loaner life jackets at both North Lake Tapps and Allan Yorke Parks and at our headquarters station. A valid driver’s license is required to receive a loaner jacket.

Don’t get poisoned This summer hundreds of boaters and swimmers will be poisoned on lakes and rivers in our area. Many will never even know it, attributing the sudden onset of light-headedness and head-

Watch out for hypothermia Even in warm weather, glacierfed water in our lakes and rivers is very cold. Just a few minutes in cold water makes it very difficult to swim or even to keep afloat. A thermal layer on the surface of

the water can be deceiving. Cold water, even on the hottest summer day, can significantly lower the body’s core temperature. The condition is called “hypothermia.” If that happens, the body becomes incapable of functioning properly, affecting a person’s ability to swim, leading to a loss of dexterity and consciousness.

Learn more Throughout the summer, East Pierce firefighters offer water safety lessons and boat tours from our boathouse on Lake Tapps. To schedule a session for your group or organization, call us at 253.863.1800 or visit our web site at www.eastpiercefire.org for information.

The men and women at East Pierce Fire and Rescue wish you a fun-filled – and safe – summer

ache to seasickness, the flu, food poisoning or too much alcohol. Often the real culprit is carbon monoxide poisoning (CO) from boat exhaust. Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless gas found in the exhaust of recreational boats. One boat will put out enough CO to equal 180 vehicles. Because CO gas stays close to the water, accumulating under the boat’s swim platform and in enclosed cabins, it’s especially important for swimmers and boaters to remain alert. There have been several instances of CO poisoning on Lake Tapps, particularly among “teak surfers” – swimmers who hold onto the swim platform that is typically made of teak, as the boat motors along the water, exposing participants to deadly CO emissions. Early symptoms include the sudden onset of light-headedness and headache. Continued exposure leads to irritated eyes, nausea, weakness and dizziness. As the levels of CO build in the body, the person will lose consciousness and if in the water, could drown.

Report from

Dan Roach Pierce County Council Member

A

fter a wet and chilly spring, I am ready for some sunshine and a long, warm summer! I suspect many of us are looking forward to the many fun summer activities available to us close to home, especially the recreational opportunities on and around Lake Tapps.

Dan Roach

Pierce County Council Member

Whether it’s boating, swimming, fishing, sun bathing or just dipping our toes, the lake makes us the envy of communities for miles around. If you’ve lived around here for any length of time, you probably have many memories associated with Lake Tapps. I can still remember my first visit where I learned to water ski. And I can remember my last visit, in September 2010, when I participated in the Bonney Lake Chamber triathlon. Both experiences were memorable….and PAINFUL! When you’re out on the lake soaking up the sun, it is easy to forget the decade-long battle to save the lake when it looked as if it would be drained permanently. Fortunately, many dedicated citizens rose to the occasion and

volunteered their time and talents to help find a lasting solution to preserve the lake for generations to come. When the sale of Lake Tapps to Cascade Water Alliance was made final, you could hear a huge sigh of relief throughout the region. But the work didn’t stop there. A new owner brought new questions, issues and concerns. Again, citizens have risen to the occasion to address the future of Lake Tapps. Over the last few months I have sat amongst dozens of you and your neighbors to see the community come together and discuss how to manage Lake Tapps. Cascade Water Alliance has been very proactive by including citizens in decision-making

regarding the lake’s management. It is refreshing to see a company step back and sincerely address the needs and wants of the community. As this collaborative process continues, I encourage you to get involved and play a part in molding the guidelines that will impact lake enthusiasts for years to come. In a tough economy and a very tough budget year, I am working at the county level to provide the necessary funding to provide law enforcement on the lake and to keep the park open. Please feel free to contact me any time with questions or concerns.
