Major Winter Beach Erosion and Storge of Personal materials at each Beach Stop
On October 31, 2014 a major storm took place in our area. Beach Stairs at Stop 41 and 43 were damaged . Other beach areas in our Village look very different from last year. Lake water levels are expected to continue to raise this year season. Grand Beach lost all their beaches from the storm.
This season, please do not place beach equipment at the bottoms of the beach stairs, if they cause a safetly issue or block access we will remove them. We had a lot of complaints on this last season and with smaller beaches, we need to enforce this policy. Thanks for your understanding.
Please make sure that your address numbers are on your mail box and house!
The minutes wasted looking for your address could mean the difference between life and death
