The City of Lake Elmo will be hosting an informational meeting with homeowners who live on Lake Elmo and Lake Jane on December 10, from 6:30 to 9 pm in the Lake Elmo City Hall Council Chambers. The meeting will include a presentation from Barr Engineering’s Meg Rattei, who will detail the current problem on city lakes, strategies that have worked for eradication, and next steps for the 2015 treatment season. Following the presentation residents will breakout into lake groups and talk about the formation of lake owners associations that are critical in obtaining MNDNR grant money, which could help offset the costs of treatment.
This meeting serves as a follow up to an initial meeting held on October 30th this year, which first addressed the severity of the Eurasian Milfoil problem. The City has since been partnering with the Valley Branch Watershed District, Washington County, MNDNR, and lake owners associations to develop a preventative maintenance plan. For more information contact City Administrator Dean Zuleger at 651-747-3905.
The public is invited to attend the second annual Light Up Lake Elmo community tree lighting ceremony on Saturday, Decebmer 6, from 4 to 5 pm, downtown Lake Elmo (at the corner of 34th Street, and Lake Elmo Avenue).
Complimentary cider and cocoa will be provided amongst the field of trees sponsored by local residents and businesses. Visit Santa at establish salon, create a craft at the Lake Elmo Library, and participate in a scavenger hunt. Village Wines & Spirits will also be hosting a collection for Toys for Tots. The lighting of the tree will commence at 5 pm. For more information visit www.lakeelmo.org/lightuple or call 651-747-3908.
Due to the early frost, temperature and winter weather conditions the reconstruction work along 39th Street will be on hold until the summer of 2015. The suspension of work will allow the roadway to be built during ideal conditions to promote future longevity of the road.
Access to 39th Street during the coming winter and spring will only be available off of Trunk Highway 5. Traffic control and barriers will be maintained until construction recommences in the summer of 2015. Please refer to the image above for a visual location of the barricades.
We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience. Should you have any questions or concerns regarding this work, please direct your calls to Chad Isakson, Project Engineer at 651.300.4283.
Thank you again for your patience during this construction activity.
