Recently I posted a letter or notice that will appear in the Bylines concerning the seven streetlights that the Chamber currently pays. Since the Chamber is the sole entity paying for the street lights the organization has decided to turn the lights off. The cost is prohibitive and another local entity has decided to host the street fair again, a source of funds for the Chamber. Last year several folks around town to include myself donated funds to keep the street lights on. The Chamber cannot fund the lights and frankly needs help.
If you are concerned about the lights being turned off please come to the next Chamber meeting.
Since the Chamber could not locate an appropriate location for the street fair, Scenic Bay will again be hosting this event. Scenic Bay was successful getting Marietta closed so the organization can host the event. Of course the funds collected go directly to Scenic Bay and JD's Resort.
Lakes Highway decided on Monday that further review would be needed for the easement rquest that Scenic Bay had made. The easement would allow Scenic Bay to apply for a liquor license for The Buttonhook Inn. Currently The Hook is without a liqour license.
I will provide further updates on this issue as well as infomration on any pending meetings. This issue is not straight forward and is rather complex.
Here is to more snow in Bayview and hopefully Spring is around the corner!
