County set to sell park to Butternuts

(Continued)

A parks and recreation committee is expected to be set up by the town to discuss potential ways to manage the park and to maximize its use, Eckelmann said.

“We’re going to do whatever we have to do to make it as enjoyable as possible for everybody,” he said.

County Rep. James Powers, R-Butternuts, who had opposed closing the park to the public, said of the saga leading to the expected title transfer to the town: “I’m glad it has a happy ending.”

McCarty said he expects the county board will agree to cede the park to the town without hesitation. Some county representatives have said they didn’t think the county should be in the business of running a campground competing with privately operated businesses.
