The accomplishments of our attorneys and the government affairs consultants to date are noteworthy. Without these accomplishments the way of life around the lake would already have changed for the worse and property values would have decreased considerably.
The donations already received have made a difference. We have used the money to pay our legal & lobbying expenses, form a not for profit corporation, communications (mailings and postage), and our accountant’s review of our finances. The SPC board members are all permit holders and are 100% volunteers. We do not have a paid staff, and we all pay our own expenses.
The legal issues are complex and are very time consuming. Our legal firm and attorneys require payment as they proceed, and while we have negotiated an excellent rate, our legal fees are substantial. We are requesting donations of both time and money from you which helps pay for these necessary fees to help maintain the legal integrity of the permit system. We need additional funds as soon as possible to continue the effort of returning the lake situation to a stable environment that existed before the issues we are attempting to solve surfaced. We expect once we obtain a sound long term solution our need for funds will decrease. We really need your help; we need everyone to get involved. Try to invest in an annual donation with the value of your home in mind. If the permit system were to be compromised we are fairly certain that the value of your Great Sacandaga Investment on the lake would be reduced by 50%-75%. An amount for your donation each year surely should be 1% - 2% of that number. This is the best insurance policy that you could purchase for your family.
Contributions can be mailed to: Sacandaga Protection Committee, P.O. Box 86, Mayfield, NY 12117
