Mayor William Hallenbeck has set the date for evicting the Furgary Boat Club (a.k.a. the North Dock Tin Boat Association): Monday, July 16. Someone who met with the mayor recently to plead for a stay of execution reported that Hallenbeck said the eviction would go forward as scheduled despite petitions and public outcry opposing the action. If Hallenbeck is turning a deaf ear to his constituents, you have to wonder who he is listening to.
The Furgary Boat Club is planning an open house on Saturday, July 7, from 1 to 4 p.m. You can access the online petition by clicking here.
