Rental Registration

To support the City of Edwardsville Rental Registration and Inspection Program, Dunlap Lake is asking that all property owners who rent a home out submit a copy of the City’s registration form to meet the Association reporting criteria in the restrictions.
     The City’s form is due annually and this year a copy of your form should be sent to manager @dunlaplake.org by January 25, 2018.
     In addition to the City form, the Association needs to know if landlords will keep their boating privileges or assign them to the renter.

Lake to be Lowered This Winter

Lowering the lake last winter seemed to freeze out a lot of the problem plant life Dunlap Lake experienced during the summer of 2016. The plan is to drop it again this winter when a long cold spell is predicted to see if it will work again. It will be kept low through a hard freeze and then allowed to fill up as quickly as rain and snow will fall to fill it.
