The City of Lake Park (the City) is seeking a qualified consultant to complete watershed and lake assessment and community planning toward improving water quality at Silver Lake. The selected firm will provide engineering and planning services related to analysis of the watershed, modeling of hydrology and nutrient loading (both internal and external), development of a lake response model, and facilitation of community-based planning. The firm will also consider impact of rough fish on water quality and assess the potential for excluding carp from spawning areas (eg. Trapper’s Bay), and develop conceptual fish exclusion strategies. The selected firm will be working for the City of Lake Park and collaborating with officials from the Iowa Department of Natural Resources (DNR).
As fall approaches we often turn to yard clean-up before the snow flies. Just a few reminders:
- Landscape waste/Grass/Leaves: DO NOT put this waste in the garbage bins or dumpsters. There is a drop off spot for waste located at the city shed. The disposal of waste, originating on the premises, by open burning is allowed.
- Burning: Burning shall only be allowed North of Railroad St on even numbered days and South of Railroad St. on odd numbered days. Recreational fires are allowed at any time.
- Tree Trimming: It is the responsibility of the property owner to keep trees overhanging the streets/alleys trimmed so that all branches will be at least 15ft above the street surface. Branches may be disposed of at the City Shed. Lengths no longer than 10ft would be greatly appreciated. To those of you who have taken care of this, THANK YOU!
- Weed growth above 10” on your property, unlicensed/inoperable vehicles, appliances, mattresses, furniture and junk are all items that need to be removed from your yard to avoid a nuisance warning. If you are unsure, call City Hall at 712-832-3527
