McLouth man seeks more open boat docks

For more than a decade local anglers have complained about the lack of boat docks at the boat ramps at area reservoirs during the winter.

Leonard Covert of McLouth has drafted a petition asking the Corps of Engineers and Wildlife and Parks to keep the docks in the water at a few of the boat ramps at Perry Lake during the winter.

Anyone interested in signing the petition can contact Covert at 785 863-2619.
