Due to dangerous ice conditions last winter and in March 2016 the winter custodial visits were limited to visits performed by boat after the ice out in April. Steve Murray our custodian was also hampered by time restraints of the marina opening. Custodial visits that were completed only numbered 117 unfortunately. The LWCA is considering conducting these visits in February to avoid spring ice conditions. Perhaps with the climate changes the visits could be conducted after the ice out in April.
The fall custodial visits were conducted in the latter part of November and ended in the first week of December. A total of 216 visits were completed, some with ice and snow condtions prevailing. LWCA may consider placing lake numbers in the dock areas of members who have road access, as it is difficult for the custodian to determine the member’s cottage by boat or snowmobile.
