Garbage Pick-up and Recycling:
Madison County Board of Supervisors recently voted to discontinue county pick-up of solid waste and convert to a private company in an effort to curb wasteful spending. Waste Management will now be responsible for the garbage pick-up. There may be some continued delays for the first couple of weeks while the new drivers become familiar with their routes. Pick-up for Lake Caroline will continue to be on Mondays.
As of right now, there are no changes to recycling program or schedule. Wednesday curbside pick-up will continue until further notice.
Both Pools are now open:
The Bellevue pool and kiddy pool are open.
Martinique pool and kiddy pool are open. The entrance road into Martinique remains in poor condition due to construction. Please use caution.
Kids Fishing School:
Register your child or grandchild now. There are a few spots still open.
The Lake Committee is sponsoring the Mike Michels/Tom Pope Fishing School for kids from six to twelve years old on May14th from 9:00 a.m. till 11:00 a.m. This will be a very fun filled and educational school, with kids visiting five different learning stations covering everything from knot tying to identifying different species of fish found in Lake Caroline.
There is no charge for this school; unfortunately, the class will be limited to the first 50 kids signing up for the class to allow for sufficient adult supervision. The children must be children or grandchildren of Lake Caroline property owners; one non-resident can be registered with each application when registered with other property owners children. Applications for the school can be picked up at the Lake Caroline office and must be returned no later than May 9.
Each participant will receive a Rod & Reel (to take home), and a participation medallion. A hot dog lunch will be served after the school.
