DNR Update

Today I spoke to the Assistant DNR Commissioner I met with last week. He received the mini-survey of P.O.P.U.L.A.R. members I sent him and is waiting for a report back from staff members who are analyzing the results in light of the request to grandfather existing (Legacy) docks. I reiterated that I thought incorporating the concept of Legacy Docks into the permitting process made the most sense. He is not (yet) in a position to make a commitment but did not dismiss the proposal out of hand. We are scheduled to meet next week. He is going to set something up once he hears back from the folks researching issues raised in our meeting last week.

Our plan is to reach a resolution relatively shortly or, in the alternative, be prepared to protect P.O.P.U.L.A.R. members' interests before it's time to install docks.

As always, I'll keep you posted.

I think anyone in Beltrami County should look to see what their local crackpot is proposing to the county commisioners. Please look at the Feb 28 entry at this address:

Feb 28 entry bclara forwards dock resolution to county.

Everyone needs to see what the radical environmentalists in Beltrami county are trying to do.
I would get in touch with the Beltrami county commissioners office and voice your concerns. I hope the commissioner is smart enough to see through all of the BS on this resolution.
