Boaters on Clark Lake might have an easier time getting on and off the water soon. Expansion of the boat ramp was under consideration by the Clark Lake Advancement Association, which was already getting estimates. Now Park and Recreation Chairman Tony Haen says some dredging of the lake near the landing will also have to done to repair damage caused by boaters who illegally power load their boats on to trailers.
Haen says that work wouldn’t happen until next year because permits are needed from the Department of Natural Resources. Cost sharing with the Town of Jacksonport, which shares Clark Lake with the Town of Sevastopol, would also have to be determined. The Park and Recreation Board is scheduled to take up the matter when it meets September 24.
