Welcome to the Long Lake at Vergas Lake Association webpage.
It is our intent to make this page as informative as possible. We will make every attempt to post up-to-date minutes from Association meetings, as well as news releases and information pertinent to those owning lake property.
"No wake zones" have been ordered for all lakes in Otter Tail County. Information about this order can be found at http://www.co.otter-tail.mn.us/CivicAlerts.aspx?AID=35 Take time to familiarize yourself with this information.
The Minnesota DNR has issued numerous bulletins regarding items of concern to all lake property owners and sportsmen. We encourage you to visit their website frequently to keep up-to-date on current issues. A link to their website, as well as links to other informative websites is available on the "Links to External Sites".
EMERGENCY RESPONSE NOTIFICATION SYSTEM
At a Hobart Township meeting, Julie Lamers, City Clerk for Vergas, outlined a emergency response notification system that is being provided through the Otter Tail County Emergency and Safety liaison. This system would be made available to parties in both Vergas and Hobart Township that would provide immediate notification of various subjects through which ever contact venue one would like, such as; cell phone, home phone, text, work phone, email or fax. The following link gives somewhat of an overall application of the broadcast process and the cost.
PAST NEWS OF INTEREST
We have a new DNR contact person at the Fergus Falls DNR office who will help in identifying suspicious plants or creatures that you're concerned about being an AIS. He is Mark Ranweiler, and his number is 218-739-7576, Ext. 254. If you bag your item in water, they tell us this allows you to transport possible AIS's to his office. Keep scouting for these bad boys!
