We also had a discussion with Police Chief (and now Democratic candidate for sheriff) Kevin Coppinger regarding noise management at the lake for illegal activities like noise from fireworks as well as the Broadway cove noise abatement with the 4 Winds grill. Minutes of the meeting will show the recommendations. A vote was taken regarding further study of a fountain pump to create a water wall in the cove to mitigate noise. To that end, both Community Development and the Mayor’s office were contacted regarding participating on that study panel. So far Mayor Kennedy would like to have a member on that study group. Dates have not yet been set for meetings of the research group. TBA.

The date for the semi-annual pond clean up is October 22 at 9AM meeting at the Broadway public park and cleaning up the 12 rights to egress scattered around the pond, public property at the back of the Knights of Columbus and the Pond View(Briarcliff) boat ramp.
