In November the LPA facilitated the installation of a new entrance gate at the boat ramp. The previous gate was damaged and the operating system was obsolete and no longer supported by the provider. The cost of the new gate system was $17,420.00. If you are willing and able to donate funds towards this very important project please send a check payable to LPA, to PO Box 751, Montezuma, IA 50171. Please note Boat Ramp Gate in the memo. Thanks very much!
