Park Commission To Meet Dec. 16

The Mackinac Island State Park Commission will meet Wednesday, December 16, at 1:30 p.m. in room 103 in the Kellogg Center on the Michigan State University campus in East Lansing.

The commission is expected to consider imposing a bicycle license fee on the Island's 12 commercial bicycle rental businesses. The fee, say commissioners, would help offset costs to maintain park trails, roads, and other facilities and equipment used by cyclists.

A subcommittee established during the board's September meeting is expected to recommend the new fee. The committee also has been reviewing all of the park's fees and is expected to report its findings during the meeting. Commissioners appointed to the committee are Richard Manoogian, Dennis Cawthorne, and Laurie Stupak.
