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.

To my Four Lakes neighbors –
I know many of you were devastated by the dam failures and resulting floods that took place on May 19th. Many of us lost our homes or we have to rebuild, and all of us lost an important part of our lives. Our businesses and livelihoods were threatened, and now what once were beautiful lakes are barren fields and a winding river. While the flood may have washed away so much from our lives, what was not lost in its waters was our hope and our resiliency.
