The meeting will be held at the Muskego - Moose Lodge (located at Janesville Rd. and Crowbar Rd.). Our speakers will be Lt. James Kaebisch and Sgt. Peter Lynkiewicz and they will discuss boat patrol issues/items of concern noted so far this year on LML.
We also just became aware that Officer Gary Mrotek of the Muskego Police Dept. will be retiring in the very near future. All of us wish Gary the best in his retirement years!!! If you see Officer Gary, thank him for all his years of service in Muskego including water patrol on LML.
Other Subject Items Include:
Walleye Stocking Fall 2014 – LMLA member Bob Bueckers has been in contact with the WDNR regarding this walleye stocking project. Bob was informed that the WDNR plan to stock approximately 7,000 walleye this fall. These walleye will be in the 6 inch range (e.g. higher survival rates of the fish). Thanks Bob for coordinating these communications with the WDNR.
Solar Lighted Buoys –The three (3) buoys with solar lights are flashing away in the evening hours. This has assisted evening watercraft users in not colliding with the buoys. The feedback we are getting from boaters and riparians has been very positive in preventing accidental collisions.
Idle Isle Restoration Update – LMLA member Lisa Niles and her team continue to clean and spread out mulch at the boat launch area. Everything looks very nice. We also appreciate the partnership with Basse’s Country Delight Farm Market for their generous donation and delivery of this mulch. Next time you are at Idle Isle, take a look at the improvements that have been made – quite impressive.
Plan on attending the October 15th LMLA membership meeting at the Muskego-Moose Lodge commencing at 7:00 pm. More information will be provided as we approach October 15th. Enjoy the Lake – and the upcoming beautiful Fall colors!!!
