Reminder from the SL Sewer Company

With all the rain, snow and thawing going on at Spring Lake, remember that if the sewer alarm near your residence goes off, do NOT turn the alarm off and then forget about it.  Please leave the alarm on and call Dick Gooch at (660) 626-3498.

Pay Your $80 Fire Protection Now

Payments for fire protection are payable in December and January each year.  Adair County volunteer firefighters will respond to all calls of 911 addresses for fire protection. If the property owner has not paid the $80/year dues, they will be assessed $500/hour-average time is 5-6 hours. Annual dues should be paid in December or January and sent to Adair County Fire Department, PO Box 1049, Kirksville, MO, 63501.  It is each property owner's responsibility to pay the annual dues of $80 whether or not we are notified by the fire department.  

Strategic Plans

Spring Lake, Inc. and the Spring Lake Sewer Company have drafted Strategic Plans to serve as short, medium, and long range guides as our community looks towards the future.  Both plans address financial, environment, technological, safety, and quality of life issues for members.  In reading the plans it should become evident that Spring Lake should have a bright future for those issues that we know will be part of the coming years.  What is harder are those variables that are unpredictable like catastrophic storms or mandated changes to environmental issues including waste water standards.  Both plans are regularly reviewed, sections implemented, and adjusted annually.
