Elevated water levels are expected to remain well into 2020 and that has the Town of Gibraltar looking to reconfigure the Fish Creek Town Dock. Supervisor Bill Johnson points out that the Army Corps of Engineers forecasts Lake Michigan to be 11 inches higher to start 2020 than it was at the same time beginning this year. Forecasts are for continued levels near all-time record highs. Johnson says that means its time to examine options.
Johnson says along with the dock work, raising the height of the boat launches is a priority for next spring. Johnson says there is no cost estimate at this time.
