Lake District Update
The first Annual Meeting of the Horseshoe Lake Public Inland Lake Protection and Rehabilitation District will be held 9:00 AM, August 20, 2016 at the Middle Pavilion of Turtle Lake Village Park. Go to this link to review the meeting announcement and agenda. This information has been mailed to all Horseshoe Lake lake shore property owners and emailed to those for whom we have email addresses.
Lake districts are the most inclusive form of government that exists in the US. The lake district board does not make any decisions. The members (the landowners, both residents and non-residents) who attend lake distict meetings, discuss matters and then vote on those matters make the lake district decisions.
Thanks your help and support!

Use caution at the boat landing this summer!
The lake level is up, but rocks may still be a hazard for boat launching. No power loading!
DNR warning regarding the clearing of lakeshore.
Some lakeshore owners received warnings from the DNR regarding the clearing of beach and lakeshore. Only a 30 foot strip may be cleared, and only by hand -- no chemicals or machines. Violators may be fined.
