MADISON, FL (April 5, 2017) – The City of Madison is working with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission to eliminate or control the algae occurring on Lake Francis.
City Manager Tim Bennett and city Public Works Superintendent David Floyd have sought assistance from the Fish and Wildlife Commission and are hoping a solution can be put in place in the next few days.
“Lake Francis is listed in Fish and Wildlife’s database as part of the state’s inventory of water bodies,” Bennett said. “Fish and Wildlife will determine the solution to the algae, and we look forward to working with them to implement that solution as soon as possible.”
The state agency, in its past support of the lake, has installed three aeration pumps and two fish-feeders and also re-stocks the lake.
“It’s been an outstanding collaboration between the city and the agency, and we appreciate what they’ve done to help us maintain the lake,” Bennett said.
