This website belongs to Lake Asbury Municipal Service Benefit District (LAMSBD), a Florida Special District with taxing authority over all lake lot property on Lake Asbury, South Lake Asbury & Lake Ryan as defined by the Charter.
Our mission is to maintain the lakes and dams per the Charter for the benefit and enjoyment of the lake residents.
A message from the LAMSBD secretary -
Melody Pickens, Secretary, LAMSBD
Both the LAMSBD and LALLOA board urge residents to keep trespassers off of the
Lake Asbury and South Lake Asbury dams. The reason for keeping people off of the
dams is to prevent erosion. Once started, erosion continues on its own, threatening
the integrity of the dams. It must be repaired and that is costly. Recent trespassers
have knocked down pavers from the South lake dam by climbing up and down the
face of the dam. Trespassers have also climbed over the gates at the dam, damaging
them (another cost). A new trend in trespassing is bicycling to the dams. Friends
and relatives should never be invited or encouraged to fish from the dam. If you
witness trespassers and don’t want to approach them yourself, please call the local
Clay County Sheriff’s Office at 269-6512 to report them. Don’t call your board
chairman or members. The police expect to be called by witnesses. Please remind
the police that they should get out of their cars to look because the trespassers may
be hiding in the spillway.
Lake Asbury now has a designated parking area, large enough for a boat and trailer,
defined by sign placement on the dam fencing.
Shad have not yet been added though if you have been watching your spatterdock,
you may have witnessed the recent spawn of current resident shad.
The board decided against filing a claim with FEMA for damage caused by Hurricane
Matthew. What damage our engineer could detect could hardly be discerned from typical runoff and debris.
