Agenda

Sad News from the Lake District Board

Commissioner Rick Callaway passed away earlier this year. He had served the Lake District as a representative of both the Town of LaGrange and Walworth County. Rick served as the Town Representative for 11 years, and then as the County Representative for 6 years. Rick was very instrumental in establishing cooperation between the various boards he served upon. He was known to listen to issues and find the facts while looking for common goals to achieve solutions between the Lake District, the Town, and County. He was focused on the goals of the Community at large and a proponent of such issues as combining the Safety Patrol operation between the Town and Lake District. We will all miss Rick's efforts and friendship.

Retirement from the Lake District Board

After 23 years of service to our Lake District, Scott Mason has made the decision to retire from the District Board as he has also just retired from flying for UPS.  We wish him well and hope that he and his wife, Janis, thoroughly enjoy their newfound free time!  Scott has dedicated countless hours of work to the Lake District over the past two decades. As a District, we have been so fortunate to have had his service as he was instrumental in the development and success of so many lake projects – the purchase of the golf course property, the new maintenance building, the purchase of the wetlands on Don Jean Bay, the rezoning and conservation of the golf course property, creating a community center, sustaining  a show space for the Lauderdale Aqua Skiers, the goose capture program, repair and maintenance of patrol boats, and so much more – his hard work will continue to have a positive impact on our lakes for years to come.

Boating Safety Courses

The Lauderdale Lakes Water Safety Patrol offers opportunities for Boater Safety Courses every year. The courses are completed for this year, but we will offer opportunities for the classes again next year. Sign up for email updates by clicking "subscribe" on this page, and you will receive notice of dates and times for 2019 classes. 

Successful completion of a boating safety course is required for anyone (12 and over) born on or after January 1, 1989 if they intend to operate a PWC or motorized boat without an adult onboard.  The classes offered by the Lauderdale Water Safety Patrol are sanctioned by the DNR and provide students with information useful for boater safety on Lauderdale Lakes.

WI DNR Boating Regulations Handbook (updated in 2016)

The Wisconsin Department of Natuaral Resources published an updated Boating Regulations Handbook in 2016.  Our officers will carry the handbooks on our boats and the Water Patrol will make them available at lake community events.

You can view the updated handbook here.
