Slow no wake issued for Salem Lakes lakes

Lakes in Salem Lakes are now under a slow no wake order, village President Diann Tesar announced at a special Village Board meeting Wednesday evening.

The order means boat traffic on village lakes must be slow enough to not produce a wake.

With the amount of rain the area has experienced over the last couple of days, Tesar said she would have thought slow no wake operation was common sense. However, a speedboat was reported on Silver Lake earlier Wednesday.

    People sure are smart these days!! Common sense isn’t so common.

    The water levels on most salem lakes are normal, so why do we still have a no wake in order? When will this get lifted?
