Lake Altoona residents and users.
next meeting of the
Altoona District Public Input Meeting
Monday, November 9th
Town of Seymour Hall
6500 Tower Drive, Eau Claire WI
2015 has been a year for looking at alternatives. We began the year
with an approved budget to dredge $525,000 and based on new information
from the lake management plan decided to dredge $325,000 and fund
$200,000 towards 2016
sedimentation recommendations that will be outlined at the
public input meeting.
For 2016 we
are requesting that a new website be created and we are proposing
the use of paid administrator to help locate and apply for state
and federal grants in the future. We know that our past efforts
to dredge the delta and sand trap while noble have been ineffectual
in keeping up with the natural flow of sediment into out lake. Our
new plan is guiding us towards new alternatives.
We look forward
to hearing your thoughts.
Come join us!
