The Lake Nokomis Lake District, approved by the Oneida County Board of Supervisors in May, has created a website to let the public know about its lake protection efforts.
The website can be found at www.lakenokomislakedistrict.com
According to District Co-Chair Mike Beals, the finishing touches were put on the site Tuesday, with simplicity being a key component.
"It's very simple to use," Beals said. "We wanted to keep it simple so people could access it easily and it is up and online and available for use."
Beals said the site will be used as a conduit to get information about the group's activities and plans out to the public.
"It's basically informational - meeting notices, past meetings, minutes of meetings," Beals said. "We've got a spot for some commissioner comments. We've got a spot for chairman updates from our various committees. It's very, very informational for folks that want to keep up with what's going on."
Included among all of the district and committee information will be maps of the district so that people can see where the trouble areas are regarding Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS).
"We've got a nice map in there that people can download off of the site and dial it in to very, very minute (details) looking at different properties of the lake," Beals said.
The district is also hoping that, with the added information, people will want to get involved.
To help nurture that hope, Beals said the site also contains contact information for the Board of Commissioners so that any citizen seeking further information can connect with the appropriate people.
"We have a nice contact page with the names and email addresses of all of the commissioners so that if anyone has any questions, they've got somebody to contact," Beals said. "We're hoping that it will allow people to stay right up on top of what we're doing and give them a real easy method to get in touch with any of the commissioners if they have questions."
So far, the district has created two committees - one to discuss plans to deal with the AIS and one to deal with the finances of the district.
Anyone interested in additional information about the district and its activities can go to the site and contact one of the commissioners.
