Crews have hit the ground running since the first of the month. We are now at full strength. Below are a few updates:
- The “outside” restrooms at the lodge are now open. They will be open 7 days per week. Note that they are locked during the overnight hours. They will be open by 9:00 AM each morning.
- All new docks have been installed.
- Docks at access 10 need post straightened.
- The docks at access 3 will be reinstalled the week of 4/18.
- Lawn repair is scheduled for access 3. My goal is to have this completed within the next two weeks. We will install straw blankets over the entire area.
- We have begun repositioning the buoys. We are tracking to have this operation finished by the end of this week. We did number and map the buoys last fall. The buoys will be positioned in the same position as last year…..as close as we can. It won’t be exact.
- This week we started removing large debris from the lake. This operation has not been completed, so be careful if you are out boating or fishing. Please report any large trees or stumps in the water that you see.
- Terry Clevenger and Colleen Wolford planted some pretty pansies at the east and west entrance for everyone to see on their way in and out. We hope the displays brighten your day!
- Our arborist partners are in progress with a tree pruning project. Work is scheduled for Access areas 1,2,6,7,8, and 9. The scope is to raise canopies and remove deadwood. The objective is to eliminate hazards from dead limbs falling, remove branches that are hanging over the rented boat slips, improve the aesthetics of the parks, and improve the view. These trees are very mature and had very little maintenance done to them over the years. The crews are doing the best they can to maintain a natural look. When the ground dries, we will be removing one large tree at access 7 that is close to the shoreline.
We have many more operations items to perform as we work through the spring. I will periodically send updates out on the happenings. I think you will notice the work though!!!
