The Tribune has learned that the San Marino city council will not close Lacy Park despite the federal government shutdown of parks and memorials throughout the United States.
California Gov. Jerry Brown refuses to re-open national parks with state money, despite governors in Utah, Idaho, Arizona and elsewhere using state funds to protect local business from the loss of tourism dollars. The federal government has ordered the closure of all national parks as well as state parks that receive any federal funding. Regular access to Lacy Park, including the Veterans’ Memorial, will not be changed.
San Marino, which receives a limited amount of federal funding for various projects, joins the states that refuse to close their parks because of dispute over Obamacare and the national debt ceiling.
Lacy Park will remain open and will observe its normal operating hours.
