Hammel Lake District Number 1 Approved 10/26/17
The future of Lake Esadore and adjacent lakes is financially in the hands of the new Town of Hammel Lake District number 1. Property owners within the proposed district were presented with a petition to sign for approval of the district. A total of 122 of the 161 owners, or 76% of those property owners signed their approval. The district property owners will now be taxed based on their percentage of frontage for future enhancements to the lake dam. The formation of the district virtually guarantees the future of the dam and lake with governing decisions made by a board of commissioners, consisting mainly of district landowners. The Taylor County Board received background on formation of the lake district from supervisor Dave Krug who indicated that the initial slate of commissioners will include: Dave Lemke, Steve Deml, Deb Berry, Terry Phillips, Dan Olson and alternate Brent Halgren. Three County Board members will be named as commissioners. The county board voted unanimously to approve formation of the Town of Hammel Lake District number 1.
