The ongoing wrestling match over the proposed swim-at-your-own-risk policy at Crystal Lake continues with a protest (Occupy the Lake?) by proponents scheduled for tomorrow (Sunday) at 5 PM at Cronin’s Cove.
Supporters of the proposal are objecting to the effort to enact new civil penalties for illegal swimming rather than making the swimming legal.
Opponents are focused on safety, health and legal issues.
It appears that ultimately the decision will come down to the Parks & Recreation Dept that sets policy for the lake.
