Lake Association Letter
With having had a mild winter, spring is very dry here in the North Country. It
has also been very windy. Those of you who have been away can anticipate finding
much tree debris, but hopefully no serious wind damage to your property.

Grass Carp were released in the Lake on May 24th...
Over the winter there was damage to the right stone pillar at the entrance of Lakeview Road. Work to repair the damage will begin soon at the drivers’ expense.

BTI (Black Fly Control) and the Carp Fund.
BTI Application expense has reached over $6000 each year which we begin
to pay early in January before the season has even started. The necessity of
lake mapping to monitor the water quality, vegetation and fish for several years

Basket forms are also included. Another Cap-21 project, we would like those of
