Lakewood Mayor Ray Coles responds to your ‘Ask The Mayor’ questions: Lake Carasaljo

The following is an ‘Ask The Mayor’ question submitted to TLS, and the Mayor’s response. Email your questions for the Mayor to


Dear Sir:

I live near Lake Carasaljo and I notice that after a rain the path around the lake is flooded. How can we get the path graded and new gravel installed?

Also, how do we get some more lights on the lake path? It’s quite scary in most places.


Response from Mayor Coles: Good morning,

Public Works is currently redoing the path around the lake. We cannot use a more permanent material because of environmental concerns around the lake.

We are also discussing additional lighting for the area.

Thanks for reaching out.

  • Maintain says:

    An ongoing maintnance plan is desperately needed around Lake Carasaljo as well as other parks in Lakewood. Weekly cleaning, equipment maintenance etc..

  • jerry k. says:

    Why is the Municipal building still closed when everything else in town is open???

  • Get Over It says:

    Besides for the Township respnsibilities, the citizens of Lakewood & others who use the paths around the lake, have to be mindful of keeping the area clean & neat. I walk on the paths several times a week. The amount of litter, especially after a weekend, is horrible. Now there is a new kind of litter. I counted at least 10 masks on my walk! That is a new low level of litter.Please keep our beautiful lake beautiful! It’s one of only a few places left in Lakewood that is still aesthetcally beautiful

  • Pepin Galarga says:

    Lakewood is the only town around here that hasn’t open the municipal building yet. Our kids can go to school but people are staying at home for over a year working remotely,i think it’s time to bring them back already and open up. And whoever who’s health is compromised can take a leave of absence for a few months.

  • Uncommon sense says:

    It robs everyone of the beauty of the lake.

    Someone told me Howell pays organizations (mostly kids) that keep their roads clean a few times a year. Why can’t Lakewood do the same, or create volunteer days? Our town is worth being beautiful.
