The White Lake Mayor and Town Board of Commissioners met June 14, 2022 for their regular monthly
meeting. Two Administrative Matters drew most of the attention. The White Lake “Lake” Water
Management Project Update was presented by Dr. Diane Lauritsen, Ph.D with Limnosciences. She
reported some improvement in the water clarity recently due mostly to the reduced rainfall which can
sometimes lower the pH of the lake water. She also presented some of her research showing some of
the same water problems dating back to the early 1940’s. The other Administrative Matter concerned
the ongoing Sanitary Sewer Improvement Project. The contractor and employees were complimented
for good quality work and staying ahead of schedule.
Josh deAndrade was recognized and presented a Proclamation from Mayor Womble. Josh has made
many contributions to the multi-use path around the town and recently achieved the rank of Eagle
Town Commissioner Blount asked for a few minutes to address rumors about an interaction between he
and a local business. Commissioner Blount assured the Board he was contacted by a citizen and was
merely trying to respond to a concern.
During the Open Forum period of the meeting two citizens made comments. Sandra Holland of Atkinson
Road (on the Highway 53 side of the lake) spoke about the lake water problems in her area of the lake.
Alan Pittman, also from Atkinson Road, spoke about the information being provided monthly by
Limnosciences, the town’s water quality consultant. His opinion was that it was not worth nearly what
the town was paying for it.
