Public hearing on the budget meeting on Wednesday, November 18th at 6:00 PM,

November 15, 2015

Dear Members of OWLA,

We need OWLA represented at the  on the 6th floor of the Cayuga County Office Building so we can prove to the County that there is support for Owasco Lake. County legislators are making budget decisions at that meeting. If you can not attend this meeting, please send an email or letter to your County legislator, demanding support.

The County is cutting funding to Owasco Lake through the Soil &Water Conservation District budget, Cornell Cooperative Extension budget, and Planning; Health Department budgets. These cuts will affect Owasco Lake because all four departments spend part of their budgets on helping Owasco Lake survive. It is imperative that we let legislators know the importance of funding to protect Owasco Lake.

We also remind you that the next public meeting of the Manure Management Group is on Monday, November 16th at Cayuga Onondaga BOCES, 1879 West Genesee Street, Auburn, NY, 13021, at 7:00 pm.

Thank you for your continued support.

James L Beckwith, President
Owasco Watershed Lake Association
