Up North Update-October

This my last Up North Update before the newsletter comes out.

On Monday, October 12, 2015 the Minong Town Board will discuss the culvert/bridge issue for Little Gilmore.  At the last Minong Town Board meeting, several people from Little Gilmore attended and discussed their views of what for the replacement of the culvert.  After that discussion many of those attending from Little Gilmore left the meeting and missed the discussion of the board on the use of competing funds for the culvert project.  I strongly ask that in the future you stay for the whole board meeting.  You can then see why the town may decide on one action over another. Also,the Minong Town Lakes Committee gives an update on their activities that usually has some impact on Gilmore Lake.  It’s important for the town board to see the strong support of the lakes and that does have an effect on the Town Board’s actions. Over the last few years, a number of lake residents have become regular attendees at board meetings, fostering a better working relationship than existed in prior times. This has led to a number of board actions that were favorable to lake property owners. We need to continue to nurture this relationship and support the goodwill that has developed.   

Thank you to those of you who were able to attend the meeting.  I hope we can muster the same type of response next week.
