Concrete barrier at tent camping area at the dam

Concrete and pumper truck for spillway repair

Regarding camping fees, Josh moved, seconded by Ashley to add a $10 surcharge if campers are late paying for their space. This is to encourage prompt payment, so that someone doesn’t have to make a special trip to the campground to unlock the electric pedestal. Motion carried.

It was also moved by Donna, seconded by Ashley, to convert some electric pedestals to 50-amp service, as more people are needing the 50-amp hookups. Motion carried.
