News last night that McQueeny residents and business owners filing suit to stop draining. Accuse GBRA of misappropriation of funds over the years, and that lakes/dams are safe enough to repair without draining.
No mention of having a public access to the water although they want tax money to repair dams. Injunction being filed to halt next weeks draining.

I don't think there is a judge anywhere that will grant an injunction to stop draining. GBRA played the safety card and with the video of the Dunlap gate failure, a judge would be nuts to grant an injunction.
What I have seen, the McQueeny residents want to tax themselves to purchase and repair the dam. And if that is what they want to do, so be it. But GBRA still needs to be dissolved and the assets and responsibility given to a real river authority.

Agreed. Either open up to public access/repair with tax dollars, or fund privately and maintain within the community without Govt assistance.

Winner! LCRA does not have these issues and is an effective organization!

There is public land on Lake McQueeney, but no public boat ramp.

The landowners are so protective of it, let them pony up the cash to do it.

A judge granted an injunction probably won’t last long though.

You wouldn't have said that several years ago when Mark Rose ran LCRA and had plans to set a noise ordinance, speed limit and a power boat band every other day on Travis.

I misspoke, meant undeveloped. Technically any of the land and access of the GBRA is public as it is a subsidiary of the State of Texas.

The folks mad about no public access should be mad at the same people the homeowners are mad at but for different reasons. This is government failure on all ends. It is a public entity acting as a for-profit private enterprise.
