    Letter from MLA President - Please click on the link to read full article

    At the past Board of Directors meetings there have been numerous complaints during our Open Discussion regarding the use of the lake by non-members.  In particular, there is a growing concern about short term vacation home rentals (day, weekend, week, and month) and guest access to association privileges. 

    We plan to have a more detailed discussion and seeking your input on this topic at our next Board meeting , Thursday, April 13, 2017.  If you have an interest in this topic please plan on attending the meeting at the Liberty Township Hall at 7:00 PM.

    Bob Wiley, MLA President

    Lake Update from Bob Kellogg - Please click on the link to read full article

    During the month of October, Lake LeAnn north will be discharging a large amount of the water into Mirror Lake.  During this process, there has been a lot of algae build-up that is very visible in our lake.  Please do not be alarmed at this time.  We believe this build-up is due to our fall weather including the huge amounts of rain we received in a short period of time.  The DEQ has made visits to the lakes and is in the process of testing the water quality.  Oxygen levels will be taken periodically throughout the Lake LeAnn discharging process.  We have invested a lot of money in our lake and we are taking every precaution so that this discharge will not create any immediate or long term damage.

    Some Mirror Lake members decided to walk in McCready Park today. Becky Clark wrote....The challenge was met this morning by Jerry Shaughnessy, Anita Cummings, and Bob and Mary Beth Kellogg. Although, I believe Davey was shamed into it, he led the charge!!  No wind made for a pleasant walk even though foot placement on the trail was a little awkward because of the previous footprints.

    The Department of Natural Resources reminds everyone that after the heavy ice and snow cover melts on Michigan's lakes in early spring, it may be common to discover dead fish or other aquatic creatures.
