The next meeting of the

Lake Altoona District Public Input Meeting
ltoona City Hall
Monday, November 9th
Town of Seymour Hall
6500 Tower Drive, Eau Claire WI

Welcome: 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!
