Ask The Mayor


Mayor Hal Richards

Q. - There is a city lake called Terrell City Lake. but I cannot find any access to it. I stopped and talked to a homeowner who lives on the property adjoining the lake. He told me only home owners can fish it. Is there a way that the citizens of Terrell can get to the lake to fish?


Answer - Until recently the lake served as the City water supply.


Twenty years ago, the City was having trouble with vandals damaging the pump station. As a result of that the City decided to sell the surrounding land to neighboring property owners.


At one time there was a County Road that gave access but it has been closed by the County.


There is no prohibition of fishing on the lake, but someone wanting to do so must get permission to cross the land of private land owners. Boating and camping are not permitted.




Hal Richards, Mayor
