Crest Forest Municipal Advisory Council (MAC) meets at 6:30 p.m. on the first Tuesday of each month, weather permitting, at the Community Meeting Room, Crestline Sanitation District Office, 24516 Lake Drive, Crestline, CA. The building is directly across the street from the dam at Lake Gregory. The public is welcome, and all interested persons are encouraged to attend these meetings,

Lewis Murray, the representative for 2nd District Supervisor Janice Rutherford, attends each meeting and updates us on the Supervisor's activities.

This month Lake Gregory is featured on the agenda, with an update from MAC board member Rick Dinon, who chairs the Lake Gregory Improvement Committee. The lake needs additional dredging, and the dam needs additional repairs. Of special concern are the valves that would facilitate draining of the lake in case of an emergency, such as a major earthquake.

The January MAC meeting featured a presentation from Spencer Pike, AGM/Operations Manager for Lake Gregory Recreation Company, part of The California Parks Company, a private firm which has taken over management of the county park at Lake Gregory. Pike discussed plans for upgrading the facilities, including San Mortiz Lodge, and adding a new floating playground. Dredging of the lake will proceed, with new silt ponds provided to help reduce the cloudiness of the water in the lake and the muck on the bottom.

Pike assured the public that all traditional uses of the park by community organizations such as Crest Forest Seniors meetings, senior lunches, youth ball games and the annual picnic will continue.
