BITS FROM THE BOARD
Lake Madrone Water District Board members are: Roger Williams (President), Jim Smith (Member at Large), Dennis Nay (Treasurer), John Raymond (Secretary), and Mike Sanford (Vice-President).
Lake Madrone Water District Board Meeting Schedule for 2013: The schedule for 2013 is posted on the kiosks and is now being posted on the website. The meetings are scheduled for the 4th Saturday of the month with a few exceptions such as Thanksgiving or if the majority of Board members cannot attend then an alternate date is selected and posted. All meetings are open to the public and you are encouraged to attend.
A major topic of the spring and summer meetings will be repair/replacement of the water outlet pipe and valve at the dam. It has aged and deteriorated to the point where the State Department of Dam Safety requires it be replaced. The work is scheduled to take place in early fall.
Fire Prevention: Spring is the time to rakes and clear debris from around your home. If you would like to utilize the free Chipper Program for assistance in dealing with brush or small trees cleared from your property, please call Butte County Fire Safe Council at (530) 977-0984.
History Wall: The stone and brick retaining wall next to the basketball court is nearing completion. The wall was designed to contain “history bricks” with family cabin name/dates or phrase. A brick may be purchased for $100 which goes toward completion of construction. Robert will be back at the Lake in May. Please contact him if interested in purchasing a brick: (530) 589-3031.
Per Robert’s request: Please do not remove the flat decorative stones from the work area because the project has not been finished and the stones will be needed in the very near future.
Ernie Casillas passed away last fall. His gentle spirit, quiet nature and warm smiles will be remembered always. Ernie’s extended family includes the Adams, Jeffers, Ramage and Casillas families who all have cabins at the lake. Our sympathies go out to Ernie’s wife, Joanie, and sons Paul and Tim and their spouses and children. He is sincerely missed and we shall never forget him.
