The Ohio Lake Erie Commission (LEC) will hold its quarterly meeting at 10

projects. Commission members and advisory organizations will report on the 
latest lake-related projects and issues. They will also discuss plans for 
this year's public outreach programs which include the "Life On Lake Erie"

All meetings of the Ohio Lake Erie Commission are open to the public and

The Ohio Lake Erie Commission is comprised of directors of the Ohio 
departments of the environmental protection agency, natural resources, 
transportation, development, health and agriculture. The commission was 
established to preserve Lake Erie's natural resources, water quality and 
ecosystem. It also promotes economic development in the region.

The commission oversees the Ohio Lake Erie Protection Fund (LEPF). During 
the last 12 years, the commission has raised nearly $7 million through the 
sale of Lake Erie license plates. This money is used to fund LEPF grants 
that focus on improving the quality of Lake Erie and to furthering the 
goals laid out in Ohio's Lake Erie Protection & Restoration Plan.
