Two Lakes Will Not Be Open This Summer

Posted: Updated:
    Two lakes will not be open to the public in Iowa Park this Summer. 

    Iowa Park City Leaders made the decision Tuesday night at the City Council meeting. 

    City Officials said both lakes are mostly dry with little to no fish. 

    Mike Price, Iowa Park City Manager said it's necessary to keep illegal and unwanted activities out.      

    "If there are those illegal activities that go on, a lot of illegal dumping then the City of Iowa Park and the citizens of Iowa Park at some point in time are going to have to pay that extra cost to clean it up," Price said. 

    City Officials said they plan to block off the areas around the lakes with fences or gates. Trespassers will be arrested and could face a fine as well.
