A Message From Your Board
Here are a few
items for your information and your calendars:
Blue Green Algae was found near Casey's Cove Marina on Friday, September 14. Attached is a fact sheet to provide you with information. A couple of important points include washing any area of human skin exposure to the algae with plenty of soap and water. And keep your pets out of the water. If a pet has been exposed, try to wash the algae off as best you can. You may want to contact your Veterinarian for more information. Read a Blue Green Algae Fact Sheet
A. We have been notified of a proposal to sell water from the aquifer that serves several counties in 3 states including our own Steuben County. This could be highly detrimental to our drinking water supplies as well as our natural lakes. Please take a look at Save Michindoh Water for more information. In addition, a meeting on this topic is scheduled for Wednesday, September 12, 6:30 PM, at the Fremont Public Library.
B. The waste district shared some reminders. The Steuben County center is at 2251 W County Rd 175 N right next to the 4 H Park on our lake. They continue to receive yard waste including grass, leaves, trimmings, etc. at no charge.
They also now take household trash for a fee. For example, a level pick up fee is $50 and an overfull load is $60. A trash bag full is $5. They also take appliances, furniture, bedding, tires, and even old boats at a cost of $20 per foot. The Crooked Lake site is open 8 AM-7PM Mon through Fri, and Sat from 8 AM - 3 PM until mid November. Hours are reduced during the winter. Call 260-316-1312 for more information.
The waste district also takes paint, oil and chemicals at their Ashley site, call 260 587-3063
C. We were told the public beach was closed at the county park in early August because of a high bacterial count in one of the weekly water samples taken at the beach. The good news is the beach is back open. For more information, contact the Steuben County Health Department 260-668-1000, Extension 1500.

We now accept Pay Pal as an available payment method. We can accept payments for dues, donations, and race registration payments. We have had several members suggest that we should accept payments online. As always we still will accept cash and checks. For those who are not familiar with Pay-Pal, it is a way for us to accept payments online and also accept credit card payments. If you do not have a Pay-Pal account we can still accept your major credit card for payment. You can print a form and fill out the credit card information and send in for payment. We will also be at the Memorial Day meeting and be able to swipe your credit card for payment. We hope you find this to be helpful and convenient.
