"Yes the lights ARE off for this season. I have noticed of late, that very few people are using the fishing pier, especially on weekends when I thought there should be a fair number of fishermen. As a means of trying to save a little money, I have turned the lights off for the season. I will discuss with our staff the possibility of turning the lights on for the weekends through Stripper season, December 31st.
Thanks for sharing your concern.
Chris Smith, Superintendent of Parks"
I think that's a fair compromise. Everybody's budget is tight, and honestly if no one is there, why keep it lit up. That pier has a ton of lights and I'm sure they draw some juice.
Haveing grown up fishing up there i think thats nice that the Superintendent of Parks"responded to your questions wouldn,t see that from anybody on this side of the water fought that fight a couple of drum seasons at LIP.
