Don't know who to call to get what you need done? I'll try and build that list here.
Lawn Service:Call Dittmer Lawn Service and talk to Jared. 217-257-3031 Repairs, Projects, Construction, inside or out. Call Larry Cole at Cole Construction in Canton. Larry has done extensive projects at the lake. His company is trustworthy and has a reputation for high quality work. It's not your typical construction company. Call (573) 288-3333.
Septic system need pumping, call fellow lake owner Don Martin. Cell phone (217) 242-2142, or (573) 393-2047. He is licensed, insured and a great guy on top of that.
Need new seamless gutters? How about a metal garage/shed built? Contact Enos Eicher, 27077 120th Street, Canton, MO 63435. You can also call 573-288-0426. Enos does other jobs as well and will entertain any ideas. I had him level my dock this past winter and he saved me from having to build a new one. Excellent work.
Need gravel? Feel free to call Hoewing Trucking. That's who the association uses and the comments are that the owners are great to work with and friendly. Call Mark or Scott at (217) 430-0130. As of June the current price is about $380 per truck load, that's 15 tons. If you need less, ask them. If you would like to donate a load, or a partial load, of gravel to the association for the roads, it would be very generous of you and appreciated.
Need internet service at the lake? U.S. Cellular has the best cell phone coverage at the lake. Most of the locals use them. Donn & Betty Jones just reported that at of November 1, 2013, U.S. Celluar now has 4G data coverage at the lake and surrounding area. I've used their 3G service at the lake through a hotspot in order do website updates and get my news and email. I'm excited to see that 4G has arrived. For those that don't know, 4G is 10 times faster than 3G.
Want to get rid of the geese on your property? I don't know if this works but it's guaranteed. All of the internet reviews seem to like it. Our Park District uses them on their lagoon.
