Message from Mayor Dan O’Mara

I  came across a good article in the paper this morning that I thought I would share with our Lake Watch Group

 https://www.timminspress.com/news/local-news/cottagers-urged-to-reduce-risk-of-winter-break-in

 Yes Fall has arrived on Lake Temagami after a very interesting and different Summer…  Overall from a Lake Watch Program point of view we had a good year so far and we a hoping that this continues into the Fall….  The Lake is starting to show signs of slowing down and many have closed up for the winter or are in the process of doing so.  We understand that there may be more people staying later this year which has some benefits from a Lake Watch Program perspective.  Since the Fall has been a time when we have seen an increase of crime on the Lake we do ask that those who are on the Lake to keep their eyes open and report any suspicious activity…  TLA Property checks will also be starting soon and I ask Lake Watch members if you are out on the Lake and can do a few checks on friends and neighbors to do so…  Again feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.. 

Also I do want to thank those who did help out with the Spring checks and if out in the Fall and do some additional checks let me know… 

Thanks DAN
