We really enjoyed being at the Atlanta Boat Show last week and weekend! The weather was crazy and cold but the show was a great success! The crowd was large and there were a lot of folks spending money on boats and docks. This should be a great indicator for the activity on lake property in 2018! Thanks to all the folks who stopped by our booth to say hello!
Please be aware that Alabama Power is currently increasing our lake level 2′ above winter level effective immediately due to continued drought conditions. The lake is currently up approximately 10″ above winter level and will continue to rise. It will stay 2′ above winter level until it picks up the normal schedule in April.
Just a reminder that Alabama Power will be holding a relicensing meeting on January 31st, 2018 at Wedowee Marine South (9681 Highway 48, Lineville, AL 36266) from 9 AM – 3 PM. In this meeting, Alabama Power will provide a detailed overview of project operations including the next steps in the relicensing process. Please plan to attend if you are able! These are good, informative meetings!
Don’t forget about the Lake Wedowee Property Owners’ Association (LWPOA) annual Winter Banquet on Feb. 3, 2018. Invitations were mailed to all current members. Please RSVP by January 26 if you are able to attend. We hope to see you there! For more information on this great organization, go to their website at www.lakewedoweepoa.com.
