The legislature has submitted a budget for Governor Corzine’s signature that keeps the 9 state parks and historic sites originally slatted for closure open—-at least until July 1 2009. Watch your local news for report of its passage, which will be good news for all Friends of WHODP.
If Round Valley Resevoir and its swimming, picnicing, and camping facilities remain open, so will our historic sites which are administered through Round Valley and the State Park Service. According to the Courier News, the funds to keep these parks and sites open will be taken from a surplus found in the line item for beach conservation/replenishment. Clearly this is a one time fix.
But now, the question remains: What about next year?
