"Lake Tobesofkee is a jewel for our county and region, attracting people from around the state and southeast to camp, swim, walk, bike, and more, and I'm so glad to see this work getting underway," says Commissioner Allen. "With this work, we're taking care of both visitors and employees, and I know with this and future improvements that even more people will want to enjoy what's offered out here and revenue will increase."
"Our Lake is truly amazing for what it offers people, and this work is greatly needed," says Bracewell. "This will begin to give us better facilities for people to use and allow our staff to better serve their needs."
