The Lee Lake Association has a long history with its constitution dating back to approximately 1950. Lee Lake located in Newton Township, is a beautiful 116-acre lake. The lake is noted for its crystal clear water, is approximately 47.00 feet deep at its deepest point. Anglers can expect to catch a variety of fish including Black Crappie, Bluegill, Perch, Grass Pickerel, Northern Pike and even a occasional Rainbow Trout.
The Lee Lake Association is a group of volunteers that pledges to work together to protect and enhance the quality of the water, the aquatic environment, the fishery and the wildlife of Lee Lake and its surrounding watershed. We are a community committed to preserving the health of our lake for present and future generations.
We pledge to keep our neighbors informed of developments that will impact our lake community. To promote activities within our lake community that will offer the opportunity for all neighbors to get involved.
The Lee Lake Association meeting was held on Tuesday June 20th at 7pm. We had a great turnout. We discussed our treatment options Natural vs. Chemical. There was a lot of healthy discussion on the pros and cons of each option. One of the final comments from a member asked, what do you do if you have a garden? “We need to weed the lake just like our gardens”. A motion was then made to control the milfoil with a natural treatment program called DASH (diver assisted suction harvesting). A vote by a show of hands passed with overwhelming support. We are now in the process putting the final language in the petition so we can start the process of circulating the petition for the required signatures.
Our next lake association meeting is scheduled for Tuesday July 18th at 7 pm at the Newton Township Hall. We hope to have the petition ready at this meeting for a final review with the membership. Please plan to attend.
