Past concerns still valid for more piers at lodge

Letter to the Editor:

We wish to strongly object to the Wild Eagle Lodge pier proposal scheduled for a public hearing Wednesday, April 23, at 1 p.m. at the Lincoln Town Hall.

The Department of Natural Resources (DNR) has tentatively approved the placement of five piers with a capacity of 68 boat slips on the beds of Duck and Lynx lakes.

A similar but even smaller proposal was denied a
