Because there is currently an excess does not mean it needs to be spent. It needs to be saved, or used on critical need projects. This state constantly wastes away any excess it gets, then screams for more taxes or rate increases the second things get tight. I for one would like to see the excess returned to the customers, or held in reserve for lean periods. Stocking the lake so that people can go fish them right back out doesn't seem like a good use of my money.

What doesn't kill me does NOT make me stronger. It makes me anxious, bitchy, and vulnerable...but nobody wants to see that embroidered on a pillow...Lisa Kogan...thx LXL...sorry i stole it from you! Ok, maybe I'm not sorry :-P

Having just watched a hatchery info video, i am wondering if ground water used to raise fish would be sent back in to lake?

If they have excess, can they share with the fire department so that we can keep the Sugarloaf station open?

I know it’s not possible, but sure would work well for all

So it looks like Deluxe Amenities is winning. MWD, any revelations on this and other polls/public input you have been getting?

Of course deluxe is "winning". No surprise. Heaven forbid that common sense prevail. Yes, let's hear the spin...

Shut Up and Fish!

This poll was pretty evenly split. Over on FaceBook the poll was a bit more tilted toward the less fancy option. At the workshop on Friday there was plenty of good input from the public. I think the BBMWD will start working on getting a better idea on pricing as well as what some of the various amenities will be most popular and who should pay for them. The notion of a gift shop or fully staffed store like at the Discovery Center will need a lot of thought. Volunteer workers still will need to be supervised so adding those positions to staffing is no small thing to consider. The BBMWD is very committed to building a facility which will keep fish in the lake and providing a visitor experience which will be affordable and sustainable in the long haul. It might be considered to do things in stages.

Great to hear MaryW! Thank you for the heads up! Got a tweet that the roadway was open at 12:10. Firefighters mopping up the fire noted below. Be safe and yes, highway 38 is a nice ride... Really prefer it over the 330/18 route (especially being out east).

11:45pm 4/22/19 CHP was setting up cones and flares at the bottom of the hill. Offer said 330 was closed to traffic. Cars diverted off at Highland.... nice long trip around to Highway 38. Beautiful moon though!

Vegetation Fire - HWY330 at the bottom east of the 330 and north of Highland Ave. Size-up is 150x150 foot spot, medium fuels, slow ROS. Couple transients in the fire area. ME228, ME226, ME241, & ME227 all enroute or onscene. Hope they pick it up quick. Just FYI if anyone is driving DTH right now.
