Testimonials Page

Julia & Rick, We really appreciate the hard work you put into selling our lake house. It was above and beyond expectations. Come see us in Florida. Thanks Again! We love you guys. Ted & Susie
Julia, Thank you for your professionalism and counsel in helping us to get here. We love this house! Beth & Steve
Dear Rick, Thank you so much for helping us find our little slice of heaven. You are a delight to work with and we so much enjoyed meeting you and the guidance you gave us. Yoli & Earl
Julia & Rick, We cannot thank you enough for all you did for us on the sale of our house. You certainly went far beyond the call of duty. Should anyone ever need a reference, have them call me. Mike
Julia, We're back in Ohio for a few days and I wanted to take a few minutes to thank you for your help in finding our new home at Snug Harbor. You're a true professional and we appreciate all your efforts on our behalf. Even though we hit a couple of snags along the way, everyone we worked with was very professional. We enjoyed meeting Randy Rhinehart at the closing. I think he has sold Phil on the idea of snowmobiling. So, my husband who initially couldn't understand why I wanted a second home in a cold weather climate now wants to spend part of the winter up there. I especially enjoyed working with Jeff Hanson. He was very helpful and determined to get our problem with Experian straightened out. What would have taken us months of correspondence to correct, he was able to get resolved in a matter of days. Although I have never met him in person we developed a good working relationship and he was very responsive to all our calls. The people who bought the gray house behind our still haven't been able to close on their sale. They were initially scheduled to close on May 16th. Again, Julia, our thanks; and should we find ourselves in need of a realtor in the future, or should we have the opportunity to recommend a realtor to others we will certainly send the business your way.

Funding for CLP herbicide treatment up in the air



MAYVILLE — County funds may not be available for the Chautauqua Lake Partnership’s request of $500,000 for herbicide treatments of the lake.
Being in the middle of a budget, legislators are saying it is not that simple.
Jim Cirbus, CLP board president, requested $500,000 when he spoke to county legislators Wednesday evening in Mayville. The funds would be used for herbicide treatments for the removal of invasive weeds in the lake. The process would be permitted and supervised by the state Department of Environmental Conservation and carried out by participating towns and villages surrounding the lake.
Cirbus said the funding is needed by early May. However, since the money was not part of the 2018 budget, an emergency payment would need to be made.
“The CLP and its many supporters want the county to give back some of this property tax revenue to Chautauqua Lake and fund partnership projects similar to the millions funded to other lake organizations over the past years,” Cirbus said Wednesday. “Specifically, your municipalities desperately need funding for 2018 herbicide treatments at this time.”
Cirbus asked several legislators, including Pierre Chagnon, R-Bemus Point; Lisa Vanstrom, R-Jamestown; Jay Gould, R-Ashville; Legislature Chairman PJ Wendel, R-Lakewood; and David Himelein, R-Findley Lake, to sponsor the resolution.
“Now it’s the county’s turn again to ‘take the baton’ back and fund their lakeside municipalities so that together we may all successfully cross the finish line,” Cirbus said.
Vanstrom said the legislators were named because of the geographic region they represent. While she said she supports the CLP’s work, the budget situation is tough at this point.
“We’re in the middle of a budget cycle,” she said. “I do believe we need to use all the tools available to us in the lake, and herbicides are probably underused. However, we already voted on this budget and there is no money in the budget for it.”
She said the county took a hit this year due to the $3.8 million that had to be paid out for juvenile detention that came as a surprise.
“That was a shocker,” Vanstrom said.
Wendel said the timing of the request is problematic. He said the CLP is doing good work, but the funding situation is a difficult one.
“It’s not just an easy draft legislation and hand it over,” Wendel said. “There’s more to it. At this part of the cycle, it’s hard to wrap our heads around anything. Yes, I support it, but it’s a difficult time for our budget.”
The CLP, an all-volunteer nonprofit consisting of about 425 members, has updated a Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement first written by the county in 1990. That was part of a Macrophyte Management Strategy, a study which concluded herbicides were acceptable for widespread use in Chautauqua Lake, Cirbus said.
“We appreciate the efforts of previous and current county legislators and executives to return herbicides to Chautauqua Lake’s weed management toolkit after their successful use for over 35 years,” Cirbus said.
The town of Ellery, acting as a lead agency, completed a State Environmental Quality Review as part of the state’s requirements. As a result, herbicide treatment is available in 11 communities, including the towns of Ellery, Ellicott, Busti and North Harmony, as well as villages of Bemus Point and Celoron.
Cirbus said nine permits for herbicide use have been submitted to the DEC. He said the CLP anticipates the permits to be issued in early May, necessitating the emergency funding by the legislature.
“Treatment contracts are being prepared, herbicides are being procured and logistics are being planned for May treatments, which are necessary for optimal weed management and also for minimized impacts,” Cirbus said.

Chautauqua Lake, a Great Lake Seeking a Greater Future
UPDATE:  April 10th, 2018
Springtime failed to come to Chautauqua Lake on March 21, as Spring arrived. As you can see in the photo, we still had snow on the ground and ice on the lake this week! But, we know that summer will be here soon, get ready!
Your Chautauqua Lake Partnership’s (Partnership) all-volunteer Officers, Board Members, Advisors and others are progressing all Partnership Projects during this never-ending winter. We’re proud to say that the Partnership is the only Chautauqua Lake organization actively addressing watershed, in-lake and regional lake issues. [Note: Contrary to a rumor spread by another lake organization, no Partnership Officers, Advisors or Board members are compensated for their thousands of hours of volunteer time. As opposed to other lake organizations, 100% of your Partnership contribution goes to lake improvement projects.]
We described the Partnership’s support for development of a Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS) for herbicide use in the last update. Despite the obstruction by a few, described in the last update, the SEIS was completed, approved by the Town of Ellery Board, the Lead Agency, and issued on schedule on April 5, 2018, after 6 months and $250,000. Recall that Chautauqua Lake is the only lake in New York State (NYS) with such an SEIS-requirement, a result of a short-sighted 1986 agreement between the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) and the CLA.
We mentioned a lawsuit by ~15 Maple Springs and Chautauqua Institution residents against the Town of Ellery, Chautauqua County and the DEC in the last update. This Article 78 suit organized by Jane Conroe, member of the Chautauqua Lake and Watershed Alliance Science Committee, wife of CLA Executive Director and mother of the CLA Treasurer, organized the suit. We described the suit as of no merit in the last update, and in fact, it was dismissed on one of several faults by Judge Dillon of the NYS Supreme Court, on February 26, 2018.
The now-issued SEIS, intended to be included in the County’s Macrophyte Management Strategy scope but never completed, will satisfy the 1986 DEC/CLA agreement and pave the way for DEC’s processing of herbicide permits. 3400 Letters of Notification were sent March 14 and nine herbicide permit applications were submitted to DEC by four Towns (Ellery, Ellicott, Busti, and North Harmony) and one Village (Celoron) on March 16, 2018. We expect the DEC will issue permits for several days of herbicide treatment of the invasive weeds Eurasian Water Milfoil and Curly Leaf Pondweed in ten areas of the lake in early May, 2018, well before the summer season begins. That is optimal timing for herbicide effectiveness and minimal negative impact. [Note: Contrary to a rumor spread by another lake organization, Agent Orange, the Vietnam-era defoliant contaminated with dioxin, the chemical which got our servicemen sick, was not used in the successful 2017 Bemus Bay herbicide treatment. Only EPA and NYS DEC-approved herbicides are used after environmental review and permitting under the supervision of the NYS DEC. Note that Chautauqua Lake weed cutting/harvesting undergoes no such environmental review, requires no permits and is not supervised by the DEC.]
Several OpEd’s, developed by the Partnership and published in the Jamestown Post-Journal over the last several months can be found on the Partnership website, www.chqlake.org.
  • “Weed Management in Chautauqua Lake, “One Size Doesn’t Fit All” by Jim Wehrfritz, Tom Erlandson, PhD, Doug Neckers, PhD, Dr. Jim Cirbus and Mike Latone, Partnership Officers and Science Advisors, identifying DEC-documented negative environmental impacts of weed cutting/harvesting, was published in the Jamestown Post-Journal on January 21. Read the article here.
  • “Chautauqua Lake: The Importance of People” by Partnership Science Advisor Tom Erlandson, focusing on the importance of people’s use of the lake as a necessary catalyst to lake improvement, was published March 18.   Read the article here.
We encourage you to read all Partnership OpEd’s to get an objective and unbiased view of lake issues and the required action.
We were happy to hear that $95,000 for the Partnership has been included in the NYS 2018 Budget. This is the first state funding support we’ve received. Thank you, Senator Cathy Young and Assemblyman Andy Goodell.
We updated new Chautauqua County Executive George Borrello on Partnership projects, challenges and funding requirements on April 2. Given that the Partnership has now completed the SEIS which the County abandoned, we are confident the County will significantly increase its $15,000 contribution made to the Partnership in 2017. We also hope to access significant fund balance held by the County and County–sponsored entities for 2018 Partnership projects.
We appreciate the financial support you’ve provided thus far, ~$125,000 to date!  However, with the large slate of Partnership projects and required resources, we must ask again. We will begin herbicide treatment cost-focused fundraising for 2018 in mid-April. Contributions from around the lake and in the ten communities slated for treatments are crucial to take advantage of the completed SEIS and DEC permits in process and, ultimately, return herbicides, used all over NYS and the USA, as a weed management tool available to Chautauqua Lake. Please go to our website, www.chqlake.org to make a PayPal contribution, mail a check to the Partnership at PO Box 337, Bemus Point, NY 14712or contact Sara DeMink, Partnership Fundraising Chairperson, at sdemink@me.com.
Thank you for your efforts on behalf of “Chautauqua Lake, A Great Lake Seeking a Greater Future”.
