News Bob Lake Association disagrees with Minden Hills’ cost analysis for public boat launch SHARE ON: Kenny Trenton, contributor, Monday, Feb. 12th, 2018 The Bob Lake boat launch (Photo: Supplied by Kenny Trenton, MyHaliburtonNow.com staff) A lake association in Minden Hills disagrees with the township’s cost estimate for a public boat launch. Last month, township staff did a cost analysis of putting a public boat launch for Bob Lake on Claude Brown Road. Minden’s report from January quotes the cost at $185,000, while the Bob Lake Association’s figure is at $35,000. The township’s analysis has a cost of $110,000 to expropriate private land for a turnaround, while Bob Lake’s study says it’s not necessary. Mayor Brent Devolin says the conversation will continue with the association. //www.myhaliburtonnow.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/02/Devo-1-1.mp3 Bob Lake residents had been using a boat launch they assumed was public but it is on private property and the owner blocked it off last year.
