In May, leaders of local towns convened to pledge support for ridding Lake George of invasive species. Monday Dec. 10, the Lake George Town Board passed a resolution calling for mandatory inspection of all vessels for invasives — requiring decontamination if necessary — before the boats are launched on Lake George. The resolution suggests that the county sales tax be raised 1/4 of 1 percent or boat registration fees be hiked to pay for inspection and decontamination stations surrounding Lake George.

Lake George Town leaders expressed support this week for taking quick action to curb invasive species from further spread in Lake George — and they suggested raising the sales tax in Warren County by 1/4 of a percent — or a hike in boat registration fees — to pay for invasives control measures.
