2023 Emily Lakes and Rivers Protection Fund

For 2023 the City of Emily budgeted funds of $14,750 for the Emily Lakes and Rivers Protection Fund with $14,500 designated for the survey and treatment of aquatic invasive species. The intention of this fund is to protect local waterways and wetlands against pollution, invasive species, and other practical obstacles that cause deterioration of the health and quality of Emily’s waters. Such deterioration impacts not only the ecosystem of the lakes, but also the economy and property values in the area. The Council set up the Emily Waters Committee to recommend how to spend the budgeted amount on projects with a clear public purpose.

The City of Emily is now taking Appropriation Applications for the fiscal year 2023. Lake associations and improvement districts are encouraged to apply for funds for their projects that have a public purpose and benefit the City by protecting its waters. Those interested in applying must write a proposal and submit it along with an application to the City of Emily  by 12:00 p.m. on Friday, March 24, 2023 at the City Clerk’s office. Please include the  following criteria to be considered for funding:
• Appropriation Application
• Specific work to be done in 2023
• Scope of project, including existing conditions, description of need and the end results expected
• Amount requested from the Emily Lakes and Rivers Protection Fund
• Amount towards project provided by applicant
• Local importance and effects the project will have on other communities
• Long range goals and the future funding needs beyond 2023
• Vendors used for project
• Any additional information that will give a broader understanding of the applicant and project
