Iola Lake District special meeting Sept. 29
A discussion will be held and a vote will be taken on the matter of modifications to the dam.
The lake district board is seeking property owner approval for an estimated $49,530 in modifications.
In a letter sent to lake district members explained that the village of Iola has agreed to borrow money to pay for the project.
This will allow the lake district to cover the cost in the course of four annual budgets, starting with the 2012-13 budget and continuing for the following three years.
The letter also stated:
"The path laid out at the annual meeting has been called unfeasible by Davy Engineering, the firm hired by the village of Iola to evaluate the dam.
"It suggested an alternative of cutting into the storm sewer to allow the lake to be drawn down 1.5-2 feet further than is presently possible.
"This also will allow for removing silt from the bottom of the lake in the area of the dam and getting it out of the lakebed."
The work will need to be done before the lake level is raised in April 2013.
