Interested in Starting a Lake Association?

Starting a Lake Association can be one of the most rewarding things you can do for your lake, for your property and for future generations.

It's the one thing where you and your neighbors all have the same interest--to protect and enhance you lake and lake property.

It's not at all difficult to form a lake association.  We can help.  Contact a committee member (information listed under 'About Us' tab) or call Scott at 715-804-4403.

A good place to start is the website for the Wisconsin Association of Lakes.  Click here for detailed information.  Your lakes will thank you.

Lakes Committee Wants County to Fill Vacant AIS Position "As Soon As Possible"

At its January meeting the Newbold Lakes Committee passed a motion requesting the Town Board write a letter to the County encouraging it to fill the vacant Aquatic Invasive Species Coordinator as soon as possible.

The motion encourages all lakes associations and anyone interested in our waterways to do likewise.

The committee believes that the AIS Coordinator is critical to the success of our lakes management.

Lakes Committee Recommends Mission Statement

At its January 18 meeting, the Newbold Lakes Committee passed a unanimous motion to recommend the Town Board adopt the following mission statement:

"To preserve, protect and enhance the quality of the town's waters through education, communication, and outreach; to pass them along to future generations in better condition than we received them."

The motion will be presented to the Town Board at its January 27 meeting for their consideration.
