While it is not news that the county commissioners have decided to eliminate all funding for the park, the rumor I have heard is.
It appears the county wants to sell the park to an undisclosed developer. To facilitate this, the funding needed to be eliminated so that the park would fall into total disrepair and just become a mill stone to be cast away. I truly hope that isn't the case but it sure seems like it is. If I'm not mistaken, the entire budget for the park is only a few hundred thousand dollars. Why not trim 7 of the no-show jobs in the county instead??? I can understand if they are just waiting for those people to be picked up in the federal probe but why shut down the park? It does not compute unless there is another reason.
I have written some not very flattering things about Mr. Madrack, the cat that runs Moon Lake, but that doesn't equal me wanting the park closed and I certainly don't want to see it sold for a pittance to a very connected (to the dems under the dome) developer. The county has said they'd like to find somebody to lease the park and charge people to go there to try to recoup their money. The problem there is that the park doesn't get a lot of traffic so no sane businessman will do that.
