The Lake Hopatcong is to receive $500,000 annually for the protection, preservation, restoration, maintenance, management and enhancement of New Jersey’s largest state-run lake
Legislation has been signed by Governor Christie creating the “Lake Hopatcong Fund”. The legislation dedicates $500,000 annually for the protection, preservation, restoration, maintenance, management and enhancement of New Jersey’s largest state-run lake. The funds would come from license fees required to operate power boats on nontidal waters.
Since our inception, the Lake Hopatcong Foundation has been actively advocating for a stable source of funding, so we are thrilled to share the news of this big win for the lake! We extend our sincere appreciation to Senators Anthony Bucco, Steven Oroho, Joe Pennacchio, Assemblyman Anthony Bucco and our legislative delegation for their leadership in seeing this important legislation drafted, unanimously approved in both Chambers and signed by the Governor.
We look forward to working closely with the Lake Hopatcong Commission and the community for the continued betterment of our lake. This is truly a great day for Lake Hopatcong!
