Lake lessees need to take responsibility


Jacksonville Daily Progress

JACKSONVILLE — Regarding Lake Jacksonville Ordinances

The Lease Agreement for Lake Jacksonville states that “ Lessee accepts said property and premises subject hereto and agrees to abide thereby and lessee acknowledges receipt of a copy of all restrictions, regulations and ordinances.” The City has made the ordinances governing improvements available on the web and if one does not have internet access, the City will provide copies. Further, it takes a vote of the entire council to approve or deny a variance or exception to the ordinances. Neither one council member nor the mayor can singularly approve or deny requests. It is imperative that lessees take the responsibility of informing themselves about the regulations prior to initiating construction and obtain appropriate approvals.
