- Have you signed up for CodeRed?
Jo Daviess County has implemented the CodeRED Emergency Communications Network, a reverse 911 system for anyone who signs up for alerts such as storm warnings, evacuation notices, missing person alerts, etc. Messages can come over your home or cell phone with a call or text message, or delivered as an email. ACL will also use this system to send alerts to our owners who sign up. We will send notices for amenity closings due to bad weather, when the lake is closed or at no-wake, etc. We can also communicate to specific sections of the lake; for instance, if the water company needs to shut down the water on the north end of the Association-we can send notices only to those affected.
Remember: USE YOUR ACL ADDRESS – EVEN IF YOU ONLY HAVE A LOT. It is important that you provide your ACL address so we can contact you with ACL-specific messages and alerts.
If you have questions about CodeRed messages sent by Apple Canyon Lake, please call (815) 492-0090. Please DO NOT call the Jo Daviess County Sheriff’s Department.
Sign up for CodeRed here.
- Board approves changes to creel limits
At the March 18 regular meeting of the Board of Directors, the Board moved to change the creel limits in the ACLPOA Rules and Regulations. The Motion states:
To approve to change to the daily bag limit on largemouth bass from two under 14″ to five under 13″ per day. The new slot limit will change to 13″ to 24″ for Catch and Release and the one fish over 24″ per day will remain the same.”
- Beaver Damage
If you see evidence of beaver damage, please contact the Maintenance Department at 815-492-2167.
- Goose Nests
We need your help. Our Goose Egg Addling/Oiling program volunteers do not see every nest. If you are out on the lake or trails and see a nest, or if you have a nest on your property, please call the office at 815-492-2238 and share the location so our volunteers can include the nest in the program.
Remember: we are not trying to eliminate all geese from ACL, but hope to manage the number of geese returning each year. With a successful program in place, we can keep our lake healthier, lower the amount of unsightly goose droppings, and still enjoy the beauty of these birds.
- Water Craft Renewal Notice
In the past, our office could email IDNR staff directly on behalf of our members to confirm Watercraft Registration renewals. We are no longer able to continue this service. Please be aware the IDNR accepts these calls Tuesday – Thursday from 8:30-4:40 only. Please be proactive and submit your current State Watercraft Registration as soon as you receive it.
