Heads-up to fisherman: No fishing in lake til '14

Tom Collins
NewsTribune Senior Reporter


Monday, Mayor Don Finley issued a reminder to city residents that the Department of Natural Resources has imposed fishing restrictions in order to establish a balance. Despite the warnings, the lakeside was teeming with anglers on Sunday.

“I’m hoping people will abide by the restrictions,” Finley said, indicating he’d prefer to avoid enforcement. He further noted the fishing is poor, as “the fish in there are minnows.”

Separately, the city awarded the contract for the Woodland Avenue and Second Street water main project to John Pohar & Sons at $97,177.30.

The council also received bids on motor-fuel tax projects to repair portions of Columbia, Porter and Alice avenues as well as resurfacing a portion of Woodland Avenue. The low bidders, Universal and Advanced Asphalt, bid $97,820.45 and $31,507, respectively. Both bids were below the engineer’s estimate.

Finally, the council denied a request to grant an exception to its per-household limit of three dogs. Oglesby resident George Tunstall asked for a waiver but the council declined, with Finley noting they’d have to change the ordinance and this the council was unwilling to do.
