The Lake Zoar Authority has submitted a budget request for 2023. It's less than the 2021 proposed budget, but more than the actual expenses. The difference in expenses is due to savings from switching the insurance provider, combined with rising expenses for boat fuel, law enforcement, and weed treatment. The authority noted that the cost for Lake Zoar Authority identification cards for commissioners and marine patrol drivers was determined to be inexpensive. The Authority is applying for a Summer Life Jacket Grant. The life jackets will permanently stored in a lock box, with a short supply stored on the patrol boats. They will be loaned out to lake patrons in need, with return required. The life jackets will be sanitized upon return. The authority says this will help reduce law enforcement citations.
