Urgent Announcement: Joe Manna, the RLRD Chair, has resigned his Commission position, effective immediately, due to a recently diagnosed and significant health concern.  Clearly, his experience and wisdom will be missed and the Commission wishes him and his family well. To fill the remaining year of his three year term, the RLRD invites prospective candidates who reside within the lake district to contact the RLRD office. The same candidate could run again to fill the full three year term, beginning in 2017. The election occurs on Saturday, July 30, and there is some urgency to act now to qualify for the ballot.  Interested candidates should speak to Stephanie in the office on Tuesdays or Fridays, 8:00am - 4:00pm, to learn of the requirements to qualify to run for this position.


Summer 2016 launch fees and launch gate policy in effect this summer are on page 3 of the April 2016 Rushford Lake Matters, under the Newsletters link.
