Starke County Council Awaiting Park Board Committee Report

starke-county-courthouseStarke County Council members want a breakdown of the pros and cons of establishing a county park board from a committee tasked with looking into the matter. The issue was raised last year due to problems between the county and the contracted manager of Bass Lake Beach and Campground. Councilman Tony Radkiewicz chairs the committee. He says most of his fellow commissioners are not in favor of setting up a board because they don’t have money available. County attorney Marty Lucas says the council has the final say as to whether such a board is established. Radkiewicz says his committee will meet again before the next council meeting and prepare a report for the council’s consideration.
