What is the Lake Housatonic Authority?
The LHA acts as agent for the member towns in regard to patrolling Lake Housatonic to insure safe operation of watercraft, weed and algae abatement programs, and overseeing and recommending desirable legislation to enhance Lake Housatonic.
Member towns of the LHA, and their rates of participation, are:
- Derby 15%
- Oxford 15%
- Seymour 20%
- Shelton 50%
Member towns have agreed to appoint three representatives to the LHA and to support it financially. In addition, the Chief Administrator of each town serves as an ex officio member of the LHA
The LHA was formed in 1974, and is now in its 40th year of operation.
The LHA's Board of Commissioners meets at least monthly to maintain cognizance of local issues and conduct its business.
