The town of Dayton will hold a public hearing on the Little Hope dam from 5-9 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 11, at the Waupaca High School auditorium.
Residents of the town and property owners in the Little Hope Lake District will be given an opportunity to speak three to four minutes each regarding the dam.
Those who speak will be allowed to comment on only four questions:
• Do you believe the impoundment/mill pond should be preserved?
• If you believe the impoundment should be preserved, do you support efforts by the town of Dayton or the Little Hope Lake District to attempt to gain ownership of the dam.
• If the dam is transferred to the town of Dayton or the Little Hope Lake District, should all costs be assessed to riparian owners in the lake district or should the town share in the costs?
• If you believe the town should share in the costs, what percentage of the costs do you think should be the town’s responsibility?
All those who comment during the hearing will be asked to provide residency or ownership information and be required to speak from a podium. The hearing will be recorded.
No town board or lake district board action will be taken at the hearing.
