On August 31, Four Lakes Task Force (FLTF) filed a motion seeking to be dismissed from the class-action lawsuit, Woods v. Midland County, that has been brought against multiple parties including FLTF, Boyce Hydro, Lee Mueller, and EGLE. The motion is scheduled for a hearing on October 28, 2020.
FLTF continues to maintain that lawsuits against the Task Force are without merit and including FLTF in any class action lawsuit is misguided. FLTF is a nonprofit organization representing the property owners of the four lakes. We act on behalf of the communities, the government and the Special Assessment District. Suing FLTF is equivalent to suing those who have suffered this loss.
We received a $5 million grant from the Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC). Below is a summary of how that grant has been spent. There is $1,294,348.37 remaining.
It's fall grass planting time! From now until Sept. 15, you can plant cool season grasses on the exposed lake bottom land. The best choice of seed for stabilizing the bottom land is Kentucky 31 tall fescue. The seed is available at Tractor Supply and reports are it is also available at Walmart and Menards (call ahead to check availability). The Gladwin County Conservation District may also have this seed. Sow at a rate of 5 lbs/1000 square feet.
