Public Notices

R21-13 Lake Board for Indian Lake

Lake Boards (NR-EPA Public Act 451) - Lake weed projects can also be addressed by a Lake Board (PA 451), click here for the FAQ on lake boards! Lake boards were designed for when a lake is located in more than one municipality to reduce the need for duplicate public hearings and provide a standardized approach to lake treatment. Lake boards are efficient because they bring more expertise to the table and can focus solely on the health and treatment of the lake. Meetings are open to the public and a riparian landowner from the lake is on the lake board. The lake board can retain their own attorney. Lake board members can be paid to attend meetings but often the interest and concern for the lake is enough. Lake boards do NOT replace the need or role of the lake association, they replace the role of the township board with members with more expertise and the sole focus of every meeting is the health of the lake!
