Water levels and no wake zones
We would like to remind the lake that when there are heavy rains and the water gets high as it has done several times this summer that Michigan law calls for no wake zones until water returns to normal lake levels. We have had several owners complaining about damage to their yards when boats are producing wakes when the water is high. Please respect your neighbors property as much as yours.
NEW Zoning Ordinance is now in effect
The almost 30 month process for a review of zoning and building codes for properties on and around the lake has been completed and voted in by the township supervisors and is now the legal document for the township. The Township supervisor are going to enforce the new codes and have strongly suggested that any remodeling or rebuild work have proper permits and that if you have any questions regarding what you plan to do that your talk with them in advance of your starting to do work.
A sad commentary
Please read the below letter from a lake homeowner on dumping in the lake:
Regardless of their thinking, approx 4 hours later I removed from my shore two wheel barrows full of freshly cut lake weeds. If my neighbor was just trying to save themselves some labor, they were successful in that the labor was transferred to a 72 year old neighbor with a bad back, bad knee, and chronic tendinitis in the right shoulder.
Mike, due to health and attending three recent funerals I was delayed in getting this info to you sooner so the topic could be put on the meeting agenda so that neighbors could all be informed that cut lake weeds eventually drift to shore as decided by the prevailing winds and water movement. They do not sink harmlessly to the bottom. Perhaps you could post this info on the Posey Lake website to increase the knowledge of all our Posey Lake community.
We would like to remind cottage owners that they are responsible for the actions of family members and all guests while on Posey Lake. Responsible behavior is courtesy to your neighbors and others while boating and jet skiing. We would also remind everyone that they should review all the applicable boating laws for inland lakes and streams on a yearly basis to make sure they know the current laws and regulation. The overall riding issue here is water safety and courtesy to all on the lake. Please help us keep Posey Lake a safe lake
