A friend of mine that lives on Lake Dunlap sent this to me today. It would be much
appreciated by all Texans that have an interest in Lake Dunlap and in preserving our
lakes to act on this information. THANK YOU !!

Sorry, I cannot recommend GBRA for anything but the trash can. They have proven beyond a shadow of a doubt to be completely negligent in operating and maintaining the Guadalupe River and it's resources.

I'll ask the question being asked most often....What about Lake Wood?

Another question....Has an election taken place to establish the WCID for Lake Dunlap? A lot of people don't realize that ONLY water front property owners can vote for the WCID and only property owners can serve on the board of directors.

And again....what about Lake Wood?

It is ignored because the property owners are not millionaires. GBRA wanted the county to pass a tax on everyone in the county. And that will never fly. It was a good old boy political thing from the start, from the governor on down.
But the laugh is on the Dunlap, McQueeny, and Placid property owners. They are going to be taxed forever, their kids, grand kids and all for eternity. And GBRA will get the money and fatten their pockets again.

Isn't there suppose to hearing this fall concerning the dam problems? Might find more favorable views if one of the lakes was open to the public again.

Lakes are open to the public now, just ask anyone that owns property on the lakes.

This whole thing is out of control. Yes, there is a hearing but the state is backing GBRA, the water front owners are backing GBRA with their tax, and the tax hasn't even been voted on yet. Already signs up marking the Water Districts that haven't been approved by the voters.

I don't think sportsmen would have a problem with a tax if there would be public access to all those river lakes, and a public ramp with ample parking, and one or two picnic tables would be nice.
Now a sorry excuse for a boat ramp under I35 doesn't qualify for having public tax money spent to repair those lakes while all the others remain basically private.
From what I understand, any money that goes to repairs is going to include Dunlap, McQueeney only for near future repairs, and the reason I have that understanding is I haven't heard the others mentioned. I could be wrong!


Just one more cast!

Just to clarify: thus far, only water front property owners will be taxed, if they pass the tax. Only water front property owners can vote for the tax.

Only exception I know of is Gonzales County where GBRA asked the county commissioners to seek a tax on all citizens of the county. That didn't even take a second for it to be trashed.

Ok, sounds good! Then I don't see what the problem is?

The problem is GBRA. They mismanaged the dams since they got control, and will keep control under the current proposal with no oversight.

When Lake Wood dam broke, GBRA said it would take 3 to 6 million to repair it and all the dams needed repair. Now it is up in the 30 to 40 million for EACH dam! When they saw they were being called on the repairs, they suddenly engineered a Cadillac system of gates with hydraulic operators and lots of bells and whistles. All the dams do is raise and lower the lake level for maintenance of the gates, nothing more. No flood control no nothing.

So who pays their salary? I know who pays it, but it's going to take those people to make that change!

The GBRA is a JOKE. The only two river lakes that have public ramps are Dunlap and Placid. Both are state owned and are under freeway overpasses. Meadow and Mcqueeney have nothing but private ramps. I do not know anything about Lake Gonzales. I heard that there was a city park ramp for Gonzales but do not know that as a fact. If a lake has no public ramps they should not get one dime from the tax payers.

And those can be closed at a county judges discretion.Already been done. Lake Placid folks didn't want "outsiders" on their lake on Memorial Day so they convinced the county judge to close it for the holiday. So no precedence has been set.

For the record, Lake Gonzales has a pay ramp that the owner can close.
