Greetings. I got a call from an adjacent landowner to the north and west boundary of the ORV Area. He said that twice in the past few weeks he had to mend the fence between his land and the ORV Area because it had been broken by 'wheelers. He is very concerned about this issue since he put cattle on his land May 1.
I discussed the situation and courses of action with my supervisor. Whatever we decided, I told him, I would put it on this website to let everyone know. He replied that you all do a good job of policing the area and its users. We will make this announcement now and if we have no more problems it will be wonderful. If we have another problem with the fence being broken we will permanently close the trail.
I walked the north boundary. From the landowner's description and the fact that there are new splices on the fence I believe the area he is concerned about is very close to the NORTH FENCE sign. Rocks have been placed along the fence by someone to better delineate the area. It would be a good idea to place rocks higher and/or wider to form more of a boundary at the fence.
I would also ask that should you notice the fence is damaged please splice it back together. Most of you carry tool kits. Add a few pieces of wire to them.
The area looks great overall and I appreciate all your efforts to keep it that way.
The 'bin blocks' in the staging area will be used sometime in the future to curtail traffic along the shoreline when the lake is low. Going outsides the boundaries of the area off road is a ticketable action. Yes, this includes driving along the shoreline from Fancy Creek campground to the ORV Area.
We have a new volunteer who cleans the ORV Area vault toilet and picks up the trash on Mondays and Fridays. If you see Jack driving a little white S-10 with a government tag say hi and thanks. He is doing a good job.
Thank you all for your time and effort. If you have any questions call me at 785-539-8511.
