Property owners on Bob Lake want Minden Hills to pay for a public boat launch.

Bob Lake Association Board Members Dave Roberts and Robert Roszell made the request to Minden Hills council for $30,000.

The land is on Claude Brown Road at the northern end of Bob Lake.

Roberts says not having a public boat launch negatively affects property values.

Roberts adds the association has already received pre-clearance from the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry to build a launch.

He says the land on Claude Brown Road is the ideal location.

Mayor Brent Devolin says he was impressed with the presentation and the request will be considered for the 2018 budget.
