Kalkaska County Meeting - May 29th @5:30 pm
The Kalkaska County Board of Commissioners has set up a second meeting on the Point of Sale septic system rule currently in place for sales of real estate in the county. The first meeting held on May 17th was well attended. The TLPA was represented at the meeting and spoke in opposition to the move to abolish the septic inspections rule.
The Torch Lake Protection Alliance believes that healthy septic systems around Torch Lake are key to protecting the vitality of this lake we all call home for at least part of the year if not all. If you are in the area on May 29th please attend the next session being held at 5:30 pm to add your voice to this vital requirement.
Hope to see you in Kalkaska May 29th,
Your TLPA Board of Directors
2019 Sandbar Fundraising Drive
TLPA is again at the forefront of keeping the focus on SANDBAR SAFETY at the south end of Torch Lake. The injunction won by TLPA preventing the organizers of the 2015 4th of July debacle is still in force but we must remain vigilant in providing what is needed to keep the lake and surrounding areas sanitary, clean and safe for all of us.
To that end we are asking for contributions to the TLPA SANDBAR SAFETY FUND to help defray the costs of added local law enforcement, porta-Jon’s and trash receptacles placed at access sites at the south end of the lake. You can click the link below to make your donation online.
Sandbar Safety Fund
You can also mail in your contribution to TLPA, P.O. Box 706, Bellaire MI 49615. Please make your check payable to TLPA, and be sure to write Sandbar Safety Fund on the memo line.
Thank you for your participation in keeping this beautiful lake beautiful!
