How do you feel about allowing gas engines on Teal Lake?

About the same as I feel about 4-wheelers(quads) and snowmobiles, they all shouldn't be allowed.

• waste of tax dollars enforcing a law that is not enforceable, proven by the lack of wintertime enforcement.

• Kayakers are part of the new exclusive spandex group who exclude others. Hence their hated of other users

• When Negaunee had its hand out for money to build a launch it was licenseed boaters of Michigan who provided the cash.

• Negaunee businesses need every possible way to get visitors to town to spend dollars. Teal Lake uers are a way

• there are so many older fishermen in Negaunee unable to utilize the lake because of health issues and just plain being old. It is hard to get back to safety  relying on a half used battery

The next legal challenge to the ordinance should be successful, provided a judge will rule on the law and not political considerations.  Likely to begin this summer. Vote will be a waste of City's meager funds.

A class action discrimination lawsuit for at least 5 million is the only thingk that will work. Then they will have to stand down.

These local judges will never decide against it.  Tgey all want to be Johnny Voelker and decide against Lansing.

At the very least there has to be the ability to appeal and get it out of here so an actual neutral ear can hear it.

You're not referring to the "Eddie Bauer" catch and release crowd are you.  How dare we kill and eat their resource.

Exactly, Redrover!

The restriction seems silly to me.  Teal is certainly no wilderness lake, and its waters are constantly contaminated with automotive waste and road salt.

If it seems desirable to make it a no-wake water, that's a different matter.  We certainly don't need high speed boat traffic on small, busy lakes.

I don't have a dog in this fight and won't lose any sleep no matter which way the courts/city/people decide but have heard a bit on the news and radio and a few conversations.  Someone was in the news saying for them to vote to overturn the no motor ban they needed to see hard proof it was going to benefit economically.  If it were me I would propose allowing motors on the lake 2-3 days a week, set days that didn't change throughout the year.  Only one of which would be a weekend day.  It would be pretty easy for local businesses to see if they had a spike in sales on those days whether it be fuel, food, beer, etc and the silents sports paddlers would still have their quiet lake the other days.  If it worked they could keep the set days or open it up to motors completely or keep the no motor ban but at least they would hopefully have a reason for their decision after the trial period.

I think if they cannot enforce it in the winter
the boaters are being sent to the back of the bus
and sooner or later Negaunee will be presented with
a rather large dollar lawsuit to tangle with.

When they cannot fight it because of the large denomination
they will be forced to not  discriminate any longer and anyone, and I mean anyone, will be on that lake.
That may very well include some from the high speed end of the spectrum

They could have used their heads and compromised and really done something but that is not how it works there...

Teal Lake was the area's drinking water supply, hence the not motors rule. If that is no longer the case then the rule should be changed.

If there was a no wake speed enforced I would be all for it. Without that it will be a shit show...

Thats the problem these days. Everyone is divided.

Wake Speed Vs No Wake speed

Bear hunter without dogs vs Bear hunter with dogs

Fly fishing vs non fly fishing

QDM vs Non QDM

Meanwhile we lose battles like this one.  A highly vocal group shows up and scares the Negaunee City council shitless and we are back to square one and Negaunee taxpaying businesses bear the burden.

Anyone with a motor on water in Michigan pays a tax. Negaunee used those monies to make their boat launch and now discriminates against the very people they profited from and selectively enforces their law.
The only way we will all see the red headed stepchild that is Negaunees discriminatory law is by ticketing the winter users. Then only ice fisherment on foot with a chisel or hand auger will be there. Then we will see how people are kept from the lake.

Gwinn has many lakes and there are rules regarding there uses. Ive personally witnessed rule breakers and also the DNR handing out tickets to these rule breakers on these lakes.
No one is getting chopped up. Where is all the pollution?

It is discrimination pure and simple and we are being sent to the back of the bus...

No offence but I think the only thing that is divided is common sense vs none in most instances including this topic. Anyone that possibly thinks that lake wont turn into a complete unsafe shit show isn't thinking straight. Its not like Negaunee  put a zillion dollar marina in there the backs of the public. Its a damn concrete slab with a dock. Drive a few more miles and go to the basin if you want your hair blown back.   ;D
