The Board of Directors has decided to lower the lake his fall. No exact date has been established yet, but it appears that the drawdown will begin sometime around November first. More details will be available after the September Board Meeting.
The clubhouse parking lot and 2-1/2 miles of Lake Vue Drive and Morning Star (from route 6 to Acacia circle) will be chip and sealed this year. Specialized Construction Inc. was the low bidder this year at $75,900. Russell Standard, our historic paving supplier, was asked to quote but never quoted on the job.
In September, I have been asked to attend an OLCA meeting at Lakengren in western Ohio to take part in discussions regarding lake dredging. I will report to you the high points of these discussions at the September Board Meeting. Also during September, on the 13th at 6:30 PM in the clubhouse, Mr. Tom Grabow, Regional Dredge Supervisor, for the Ohio State Parks system will discuss his experiences dredging at Grand Lake St Marys. The meeting is open to all. Please plan to attend and bring all of your questions regarding dredging with you.
Our recent offer to purchase land for the DMRA (Dredge Material Relocation Area) is still under discussion. Mainly our respective lawyers are working out language between the parties. I expect this process to be completed by early September. Then the Engineering begins for the design of the DMRA and the pipeline routes to and from the lake. After that is complete, we can submit the designs and our permit application to the Army Corp of Engineers for approval.
The office will start the winter hours schedule on the 15th of September. The office hours are Wednesday thru Saturday 8:00AM to 6:00PM. The office will be closed Sunday, Monday and Tuesday of each week.
Starting Friday the 24th and scheduled for 10 days, Raccoon Rabies Baiting will resume in Ashtabula County. Vaccines wrapped in treats will be dropped from aircraft and also scattered by hand. If you should happen upon a bait, please leave it.
