Bella Vista Lakes

The Weekly Vista - - Opinion -

The Bella Vista POA does a fair job with main­te­nance on the golf cour­ses, but there is some­thing else that needs main­te­nance — the lakes. The lakes can han­dle what Mother Na­ture puts into them, but they can’t han­dle many lake res­i­dents blow­ing grass clip­pings and leaves into the lakes. The lakes also can’t han­dle fer­til­iz­ers washed down from lake res­i­dents’ lawns. All the in­lets are fill­ing in with the leaves and grass clip­pings. Since the POA is re­spon­si­ble for the lakes, why are they not stop­ping the grass clip­pings and leaves from be­ing blown into the lakes? And why are they not clean­ing out the in­lets?

The res­i­dents who bought lake front prop­er­ties will not have lake fronts in the in­lets if the POA doesn’t start per­form­ing main­te­nance on the lakes. The POA al­ready has the con­nec­tions and per­mit ex­pe­ri­ence from other dredg­ing op­er­a­tions at launch ramps, etc.
