Shepard Park Beach Getting Fenced In

0 Comments

The Village Board approved a contract to fence in the previously open Shepard Park Beach.

According to the Post Star, The Village Board has approved plans to erect a 5-foot-tall fence around Shepard Park Beach. Mayor Rober Blais said that the reason for the fence is strictly for safety, “We had to position a peace officer there on many nights just patrolling the beach. He or she would have a tremendous time trying to keep people out of the water.” The village has been warned twice about keeping people out of the water when lifeguards aren’t on duty.

The Post Star describes the fences, to be put up by Siena Fences, “Three gates will be installed as part of the project, including a 6-foot-wide gate at the entrance of the beach where the handicap ramp is located. Two 12-foot-wide gates will also be installed farther north to allow easy access for maintenance crews and snowmobilers during the winter. A portion of the adjacent pier will also be fenced in as a way of keeping people from getting onto the beach when lifeguards are not on duty”

No word on when the permanent fencing will be put into place.
