CENTRAL LAKE — During its last meeting of the year, held on Wed. Dec. 8, the Central Lake Village Council agreed to purchase cameras to help prevent vandalism at one of its water well houses, increased camping rates at Thurston Park Campground, and agreed to look into the possibility of securing a doctor or some kind of medical services for the village. 

Trustee Michelle Fox began the discussion by introducing Central Lake resident "Toc" Carolyn Dunlop, noting that she had talked with Dunlop that day about the need for a doctor in the village and wondering what role, if any, that the Village might be able to play in securing a doctor for the long-empty medical clinic building on State Street.

"I'm fairly confident that we can find a doctor that would be willing to practice in town here," Fox said. "I know the DDA has talked about it, and we've talked about it, but I think the time to act is now," going on to point out that the village has a "very vulnerable population of elders" that aren't getting medical attention, adding that she believed having a medical service was "vital" to the village without having to drive to another community.
