Kent, Brady Lake is a public lake owned by the Village of Brady Lake. All state laws that apply anytime you go to a public fishing or boating area apply to Brady Lake, including the need for a fishing license. Also the section of Westshore where the boating launch used to be is private property owned by Franklin Township. They have no trespassing signs posted. They do not allow people to launch boats or park there.

I guess you need to do some research. Brady is a private lake and not public. You are right about being owned by the village. The area on west shore is now privately owned by 5 people. I know three of them. So you really get your facts right.

Kent, As the Chief of Police for the Village of Brady Lake I am pretty sure I have my facts straight. If you would like to stop by my office at 2123 Merrill Road some time I will gladly show you the regulations and provide you with copies of anything you need. My office is always open to the public when I am on duty.

As for the Westshore area, I am refering to the Township owned property at Westshore and Walton. That area is posted no trespassing by the Township and according to township officials, they will be blocking all access there in the near future. Presently they just have the signs up, but you can still get a vehicle back to the shore.

Ok Jim, Ill take your word. And for the west shore area. Im glad to hear it will be blocked off. But my biggest gripe is about the drunks that come from the bar and get in and drive their boats. And some of them are not even licensed. And whats the HP for brady lake? I have seen some biggins on the lake. You being a law inforcement officer. You know that drinking and boating is the same as drinking and driving a car. You should stop by the west shore area some weekend night.

Kent, My department does have the authority to patrol the lake and everything that occurs with it. Unfortunately, personnel shortages and lack of funding prohibit around the clock enforcement. We have been trying to get a boat donated to us or through a grant, but things just aren't falling in place. Hopefully, in the near future I'll have an officer who can dedicate some evening and weekend time to do some lake enforcement. It is such a beautiful area, I don't want to see it go down the drain. as far as HP, they limit it to 10 for all but pontoon. They are allowed 30 but must have the mayor's approval. At any rate the entire lake is designated a No Wake Zone.

Brady Lake is such a joke!NO money for this or that.Bad roads,Bad people in office, and a police dept that can't stay in their own village to get speeders.It was different in the 60's thank GOD I grew up at the lake then.How long will the gas wells pump before the drinking water is mix with it. Lakers get ready to get city water soon ,I do think thats the whole plan.Franklin towmship and Ravenna towmship get smart take Brady Lake and the land and get rid of this BIG MESS!

Brady lake PD are full of power abusing civil right stomping lunatics. They are obviously desperate for funds since they can't get their own residents money so they have to pull speeders from Kent and give bogus infractions. They are nothing but greedy profiteers and should be stripped of jobs.

I highly recommend teaching the Bill of Rights to your officers Jim.

Looks like the chief needs to keep his officers in check. If the officers are out of control, some one needs to take the chief to task also, cause the chief is allowing this type of behavior. Maybe you need to take some lessons from David Oliver!
