Area residents concerned about ongoing issues at Lake Texoma are invited to attend the Lake Texoma community meeting at 1 p.m. Saturday at the Kingston Multi-Purpose Center. The center is located at 411 NE 3rd St.
Sen. Jerry Ellis (D-Valliant) will serve as the keynote speaker at the meeting, which is sponsored by Save Lake Texoma and Restore Lake Texoma State Park.
The meeting is designed to bring together subject matter experts, public leaders, citizens, business owners and other concerned individuals from both Oklahoma and Texas.
The meeting is designed to target key subjects, which have impacted the economy of the area as well as conditions of the lake.
The primary questions to be posed include:
• Is the Flood Control Act (1938), which governs Lake Texoma, still valid or antiquated?
• Is there a comprehensive lake plan to address the extended drought, silting and other environmental issues impacting lake area fishing, hunting, public recreation and tourism?
• Can Oklahoma, Texas and federal agencies work together to create a mutually beneficial plan for the citizens whose lives and livelihoods depend on the resources of Lake Texoma?
