Property Owners Please Note:  You MUST provide a road to your property wide and high enough for the passage of fire fighting equipment and sufficiently cleared of snow for Fire Fighters to access your buildings.  Wide enough means no less than 12 feet (20 is better) clear of brush, trees and other obstacles. The clear height of the road must be no less than 12 feet.   Cleared of snow means plowed to the same 12 foot width.  Your insurance policy may not pay you for fire damage if you do not provide this access to your property!

We don't manage resources, we manage human behavior. The resources will take care of themselves just fine. It's the human influence that we interject on the resource that causes the problem.

John Sumption, Assistant Director of Environmental Services, Cass County.

THOUGHT:  Changes in water quality are primarily a reflection of what happens on land---around the shoreland and within the lake's watershed.

"In the end, our society will be defined not only by what we create, but by what we refuse to destroy." John Sawhill
