LOWER LAKE--The myriad of debris in Lower Lake left by the destructive Clayton Fire — at least on the state level — has been cleaned up, Lake County officials said Wednesday.

 

According to county Environmental Health Director Ray Ruminski, Cal Recycle completed its debris removal work on more than 150 properties in the burn area last week. Most were properties whose owners granted a right of entry to the state program while a handful were nuisance abatements issued by the county.

 The ice rink in Ukiah was a hit in the community this holiday season, bringing in nearly $17,000 in profits according to city documents.

 

However the success came at a cost to the local farmer's market, which gave up its covered space at Alex Thomas Plaza to make room for the rink. In doing so, the Saturday market's revenues took significant hits from December through early January as rough storms hit the area.
