  1. A word to the wise. Frank Carr was part of the group that voted to restrict access to Big Cedar Lake. He voted to restrict boat access and wants to limit use of the lake to only property owners that live on the lake. He is not a person that votes in the best interest of Town of West Bend residents only those that have money. His actions spoke volumes when he voted in favor of limited access to Big Cedar Lake. The average person can not afford to live on the lake in a huge house. This lake is a public resource and should be treated as such.
