I dont understand the poll thats online asking for peoples input weather we think the county should help the Rice Lake folks. Or if it was dumb to build on a closed, spring fed lake. If thats the case why did we build a city right in the middle of a river valley and expect help when it flooded?

Even if draining would work, it's wrong. Draining your property onto other people's property is just so wrong. It's a lake!!! The level will fluctuate through the years and there are times when your property will be unusable. Fact of life.

So if Rice lake gets too low,should the county be mandated to pump water into the lake(which is basically just a large slough)to appease the residents?
