The second meeting of Friends of Rum Island Park met tonight, Tues. May 29, 2018 at the park. A few of the people from last week were in attendance, but many new ones appeared. Topics of discussion included:
exact location of new bathrooms
enlargement of parking lot. (appx. 4,000 visitors each week)
Most tonight agreed that a fee was recommended
Much discussion ensued regarding the fee
Whether or not a park employee should be present
Gates, open or closed, locked or not
Possible membership group with car decal
Will there be a Columbia Co. workshop on this issue?
