04-26 - Lake District Informational Meeting #4 The Beaver Dam Lake Improvement Association is supporting the formation of a public inland lake protection and rehabilitation district as the best way to manage Beaver Dam Lake. A lake district is a recognized unit of government that could be most effective at obtaining funding, enlisting technical assistance and pooling the efforts of people, as well as private and public agencies. A Lake District is formed by the Dodge County Board when 51% of the property owners in the proposed district sign a petition supporting the formation of a Lake District. Those petitions are being mailed to property owners who own property that touches the Beaver Dam Lake. Along with the petition was a map of the proposed district and a Q&A providing information on a Lake District along with an illustrative budget detailing an example of a Lake District budget. All Lake District budgets must be approved by the Lake District property owners thus this is only an example. The property owners were encouraged to sign the petition and return it to the BDLIA. They were also invited to attend one of 4 informational meetings that are scheduled for April 21, 22, 25 and 26 at John’s Bar, 1201 Madison St in Beaver Dam.
