Having involvement in the lake during my tenure as Fairfield County Emergency Manager from 1987 to 2003, as member and ultimately president of the Watershed including Buckeye Lake and as a homeowner on Lieb’s Island, and as a retired civil engineer, I make a suggestion to extend this year’s boating season to November 15th as an interim step. Then discussion for 2019 can take place over the winter.
There is no benefit of killing boating on 10/2. The risks are minimal and the users of the lake could get some real benefit of the remaining weeks. I’M ASKING ODNR TO PLEASE GIVE THIS SUGGESTION FULL CONSIDERATION.
