  1. How will the town roads be affected by the Lake District? The public and private roads will be maintained in the same manner as has been done, no change will take place.

  3. With the Lake District protection and Rehabilitation, will there be a possibility of a sanitary District imposed on the taxpayers in the future? The primary reason this Lake District is being formed is to help with the costs of the Dam Reconstruction. The Board of Commissioners and the district members vote on the tax levy each year.
  4. Tim Rusch; Who owns/will own the dam? The Town will continue to own the dam.
  5. Tim Rusch; who is responsible for the costs of dam if the town owns and maintains the dam? The Lake District will be contributing a maximum of$10,000.00 per year for 25 Years. for the construction costs of the dam.  Maximum outlay will be $250,000 over 25 years. The Letter of Understanding with the Town states this amount. (See attached Exhibit D)

  7. If the level is raised, it may cover my rip rap on shore? Water levels will be at approximately 98.1 (relative to the brass marker at Burgts Resort). The highest level was 2-3 years ago and was 1 foot higher than the 98.1 that the new dam will maintain. The new dam will maintain a steady level of water. With the new spillway the 100-year flood rate will drop by ½ foot. The level will be more consistent, the need for boards being put in/out will be minimal.
