I am proud of the people on and near Syracuse Lake supporting the extension of sewers to Eastshore and Northshore Drives.
Approximately 2,095 of our neighbors on or near Lake Wawasee, who are also in the Turkey Creek Regional Sewer District, paid to install sewers and continue to pay a monthly bill. They contribute to our healthy lakes and the commerce it brings our area.
As a Syracuse Lake property owner, I enjoy the benefits of their investment since we are at the end of the Turkey Creek watershed. Regrettably, about 128 waterfront or near waterfront owners on Syracuse Lake, a vocal minority of the TCRSD property owners, don’t want to complete the final segment of sewers around both lakes. They prefer to kick the can down the road and let another generation complete the task.
It isn’t always about self-interest, sometimes it’s about doing the right thing.
