Bear Lake will be the main focus of upcoming legislative town hall meeting

“Bear Lake and Her Many Roles” is the theme for this month’s legislative town hall meeting hosted by Cache County’s local legislators. The town hall meeting will be held Thursday, July 14 starting at 6:30 p.m. in the council chambers of the Historic Cache County Courthouse.

State Representative Curt Webb, R-District 5, is a Providence resident and says even though Bear Lake is not in Cache County it is important to local residents. Many people don’t realize how many roles it plays, says Webb.

He says presentations will be made by representatives of the State Division of Water Rights and the Bear Lake Regional Commission.

“I have the Department of Parks and Recreation coming,” Webb says. “They’ll talk about the role that most of us have been very interested in, and that is how we use the lake recreationally and what the plans are and what the restrictions are.

“They will also talk about the invasive species stuff like quagga mussel and inspections that are being done as you come into the valley. And finally Mayor (John) Spuhler from Garden City will be there to talk about the economic impact.”

Webb says everyone is invited to attend this and other monthly legislative-sponsored meetings which are designed to keep local residents informed on local issues. He says questions from those in attendance will be welcomed.
