I'm a few days late on my comment..but, why pay someone to run the boat launch? Put in an automated system to pay for launch use, like most cities are using for unmanned parking lots. If you're a City resident you can buy a yearly pass at a reduced rate from City Hall. As for the cleaning station, free of charge. I've seen many of them in different states and they don't charge for use and 99% of fisherman will clean up after themselves. The City needs to ATTRACT people to the area not discourage them from coming to the harbor. Not really rocket science people!

"Chair Jim Nichols said a fisherman or somebody knowledgeable about the city who is good with people is what's needed."? How bout if he likes fish dinners, is that a plus, too?

"If this is such a great asset for the city, then the city should take a little more interest in running it themselves and trying to do the best job they can," Warmbrodt said???

Warmbrodt is a member of the City Harbor Commission, and he's criticizing & bit*hing about the city's lack of interest? Should we expect his termination or resignation soon?

It seems to this reader that Dunkirk excels at spending the taxpayers money. But when something comes up that could and I say could make money there is total and utter chaos. No one working in City HAll has a clue how to make money. Nobody. But spend it and they are right up there with the best.

Another Dumkirk project failure. Should just let the entire city sink into Lake Erie. Then you will get rid of all the problems and the welfare freeloaders too. Rumblefish get control of your enter button!!!!

The city has been moving to discourage use of the boat launch for years. Eliminating parking for boaters was the start. Closing access without notice helped to discourage many users. CLOSING the launch on the OPENING DAY of BASS SEASON is insane! If the city was serious about welcoming local and out of town boaters, we would be having music in the park where it belongs. Having music on the pier is an effective method for driving boaters out of town. I know of a number of regular out of town boaters who no longer use the Dunkirk boat launch as their first choice for launching. The path Dunkirk is following does tend to increase bar and dock drinking at the expense of taxpayers, that may be the goal.

seeing that this is be portrayed as a money losing enterprise, maybe the city should turn the running over to Harbor commission or interested non-profit group and get it off the city books

No one mentions the launch parking that was lost to the boardwalk scheme. How could any money be made with out parking to support the launch. Dunkirk continually governed by dummies.
