Phragmites continue to plague beaches and although the population is down, continued spraying is necessary to eradicate this highly invasive species.
All Jacksonport shore property owners are reminded to fill out the phragmites form that they received and return it to Jo Wahlen, 6482 Hwy 57, Sturgeon Bay. If you do not have a form call 920.823.2032. It is necessary to fill out the permission form and return it even if you do not have phragmites.
As a community service, The Shores of Jacksonport Neighborhood Association (SJNA) will be paying for the treatment of the phragmites on the Jacksonport shores for the fall of 2015. The Town of Jacksonport has an ordinance in place that carries a stiff fine if you are not signed up for treatment and they are found on your property. If you spot any on your property other than on the beaches, let Jo Wahlen know so they can be treated.
For property owners living within the SJNA membership boundaries, joining the SJNA is a great way to support the beaches along the shores of Jacksonport. Annual membership is $25. For more information or a membership form email [email protected] or call Jo Wahlen at 920.823.2032.
