State officials brief Berry Bay Lake Association members about plans for a new dam on the north side of the Ossipee River complex. Construction should start early next summer.
Select Board Chairman Richard Morgan is urging town residents to get educated about buying Camp Sokokis for $1.2 million before the issue comes to a vote at a special town meeting.

Kudos to Dan Mattaini and John Picard. You may not know their names, but they’re the ones who kept the lake level on an even keel all summer this year. Dan also reports that the state has found money for work needed on the spillway of the north side of the dam, which should start next summer.
State Superior Court must approve a special town meeting for residents to vote on a proposed $1.2 million land purchase to create a town beach on Ossipee Lake.
