Council considering dawn-to-dusk policy for parks

Port Huron City Council has taken up a revised park closing time ordinance that would set uniform hours for parks, beaches, and pools. Late last year, a plan to have all parks close at 9pm was rejected by Port Huron City Council. The revised plan would call for them to be closed from dusk to dawn, with Port Huron Mayor Pauline Repp telling our Paul Miller exceptions would be made for areas that are lighted. For instance, Repp says the lighted tennis courts at Sanborn park would be open until 11pm. She also says exemptions will be made for those fishing along the boardwalk. The ordinance received its first  hearing on Monday and may be approved by council at their next meeting scheduled for Monday, April 22nd at 7pm.
