Petition for Support of the Four Lakes Task Force


We support the Four Lakes Task Force in its capacity under Part 307 of the Natural Resources and Environmental Protection Act, 1994 PA 451, as amended (MCL 324.30701 et seq) (“Part 307”) as Midland and Gladwin Counties delegated authority to acquire, repair and operate the Secord, Smallwood, Wixom and Sanford dams.

We support the path forward and the plan of financing proposed by the Four Lakes Task Force and approved by the Gladwin and Midland County Commissioners on February 6, 2024.


We support the Four Lakes Task Force in their efforts to:

  • Continue to manage costs to the lowest level possible,

  • Seek additional funding,

  • Restore the lakes.


We recognize the appeals by the Heron Cove Association will cause delays to the restoration of all 4 lakes and will increase costs beyond 2024 estimates due to the delay in financing which will lead to a halt in restoration construction.

We advocate for a prompt review and denial of the Heron Cove Association appeal. This is in the best interest of the majority of the 4 Lakes Special Assessment District, to avoid further cost increases on the district or delays to lake restoration.
