Members open issues

Boat launch issue was raised and addressed by Marc Desrochers, President of the Bishop's Manor Association. Several members of the lake association met with Mr. Desrochers in June to discuss options. He has met with the Mayor of La Peche to discuss the possibility of a locked gate and fence at the causeway, where people - not lake owners - are circumventing the concrete blocks and launching small boats.
