ROME CITY, Ind. (WFFT) - Effort is underway to create a lakes council in Noble County.
Noble County has more than 100 lakes, but doesn't have a council like neighboring counties.
This is one of the items the West Lakes Association set out to do after several call to action meetings last summer.
Those meetings stemed from historic flooding the lake chain suffered last year.
The idea is the council will pull people from several lakes to address concerns.
The council is still in the early development phases, but could be in place by the end of the year.
"Whether it is flooding or water quality, whatever the issue is, we think we are going to see of those same issues and concerns across the many lakes in Noble County," said West Lakes Association president Diann Scott.
There will be an informational meeting about the Noble County Lakes Council Thursday.
It's happening at 6 p.m. at the Orange Township Fire Department in Rome City.
