This is a privately owned lake that residents paid to maintain. As a taxpayer I would be against "we the taxpayers" fronting this project.

Chester will find a way to spend taxpayers money come hell or high water. Private Lake, Private dam, let them figure it out. I'm not against helping the victims below the dam. I think they should file lawsuits against the Lake Delhi owners for the flood damages, afterall, this whole situation was caused by negligence on the Lake Delhi owners part and could have been avoided.

Where did you read that it was a public lake? Every article I've read said it was private. Your sign on, are you from Lake Delhi?

Yes, from the lake delhi area. There is 3 or 4 public boat ramps to access lake delhi. Public recreational usage lake, but the dam and homes are a private association.
