The City Council set a public hearing to consider the lease of the Dobisky Visitor Center concession to Trevor Brunet despite the opposition of more than one council member to the proposal.
The council will meet to discuss the lease May 14.
Councilmen William D. Hosmer, Michael D. Morley and Wayne L. Ashley have expressed displeasure with the rent and utility charges for the facility.
Mr. Hosmer and Mr. Morley also objected to the proposal to sell alcoholic beverages from the concession stand.
This is simply a proposal. It can be negotiated, said interim City Manager Philip A. Cosmo. This is not a final document.
Mr. Cosmo said the city had difficulty soliciting proposals for the concession.
This was the only bite we had, he said. We have not had the best of luck in past years getting a vendor at the visitor center.
