Urgent: Protect Lake Buel! You must scrub anything you put into Lake Buel before it enters the water. More info here.
It’s that time of year again for the Annual Lake Buel Restoration / Preservation District Annual Meeting. The meeting will be held at 10:00 AM on Saturday May 24th at the United Church of Christ Meeting House (lower level room) located at 449 Main Road in Monterey. Please attend in person or send in your proxy statement since no business can be transacted without a quorum of district proprietors. If you are planning to attend in person, please arrive early to allow sufficient time for attendee and proxy registration and quorum calculation. The doors will open at 9:30 AM.
As many of you know, Dave Lewis passed away last year. Several residents have inquired whether the fireworks company he was so closely identified with would continue. The good news is it will, and subject to funding approval at the upcoming District meeting on May 24th, Berkshire Fireworks will once again provide a glorious display over Labor Day weekend.
Assuming you are one of us who longs for the cell phone service and the associated option for internet connectivity. For over a year, I have glanced up the hill at the intersection of Pixley (Rt 57) and Main Roads (Rt 23) in Monterey, only to be disappointed by what appears to be a tall silver flag pole. What is eventually going to be the first cell phone tower in Monterey has been in the works for two years, with only hearsay stories about numerous delays and no one committing to a “go live” date after the Autumn 2012 target came and went. Discovery at the Monterey Second Home Owners annual meeting in August that new building permits had been issued to AT&T, Verizon Wireless and T-Mobile only heightened speculation.
Well, the past weekend, I noticed a set of mounting brackets have been installed at the top! Progress we can see! Could it be that by Columbus Day we might actually have cell phone service?
Once again, we’ll have the opportunity to watch a splendid fireworks display over Lake Buel on the Saturday evening of Labor Day weekend (August 31). The launch site will be the beach area near Kutsher’s Sports Academy around 9:00 PM. Enjoy!!
