In an effort to review and evaluate tasks and projects that the borough currently conducts, a section of code has been identified that implements something which is not required by State statutes and has proven to be very time consuming to borough staff and affected community members.
MSB 15.24.031 INITIATING AND AMENDING LAKE MANAGEMENT PLANS sets forth a process and requirement for the initiation of new lake management plans, and the amendment of existing lake management plans. Both require virtually the same process and staff effort. In some cases, these efforts have not only required a substantial amount of staff and administrative time, but also have become very controversial and divisive.
