Don't know much about the lake. Are the launches DNR owned, owned by the City or privately owned?

In general, I don't support launch fees. Very seldom does the money go back to repair the launch/lake. Usually it is siphoned into other aspects of Public Works Dept.

Furthermore, bars that charge a fee to access the lake don't usually get my business. Vice versa, if a bar provides free access to the lake I will usually stop in and give them business.
