Hogger, I was at the meeting. Here are my best answers to your questions.
Did I miss the exact issue that needs to be fixed? What is the exact issue here that needs to be fixed?
It was unclear what needs to be fixed because the commisioners each had different reasons. I have a video clip of 18 minutes of the meeting attached to the original post. You can see that what I say is true.
Too many boats are making the lake unsafe? The lake is getting hurt by too many boats?
This is the company line. However, I believe that it is a red herring. There are at most 75-100 boats launched at any one time. However, there are between 2500 and 3000 boats docked on the lake by property owners and their guests/customers. If even 10% of them are running at any given time it dwarfs what comes onto the lake through boat launches and they know it because I told them that at the meeting.
Too many trailers are being parked on roads, making the roads unsafe?
There was clearly too many people illegally parking on area roads and accepting a possible $20 fine as just part of what it costs to go to the lake. New NO PARKING signs were put up, the Town deputized the lake district cops to write tickets and that problem was solved prior to the meeting and the vote. The head lake police officer made that very clear, and on the attached video.
The fishing is getting bad?
Lake home owners want people off their lake?
For some, that may be true. But some of us that live in the lake district (because we are within 1000 feet of the lake) but have no frontage are shut out of the lake just like everyone else. I can tell you I will be at the annual meeting and will vote for BCLPRD commissioners accordingly, as will everyone on my road.
I don't think I have heard the exact issue that is trying to be fixed here.
That's because there was no one issue brought up by the Commissioners of the BCLPRD. It seemed very clear that the chairman wanted this to pass, and by saying someone else voted yes when he had actually voted no, he was able to bully the old man enough to get it passed. It was just that simple. Look at the video, it is remarkable.
