Lake Havasu City wants state park to remain open

LAKE HAVASU CITY – The Lake Havasu City manager has asked the Arizona State Parks Board to let the city take operational control of Lake Havasu State Park if state budget cuts force state parks to close.

City Manager Charlie Cassens sent the request in a letter to the parks board, the governor’s office, the governor’s task force and others, informing state officials the city wants to keep the park open.

Cassens says the idea of closing the Lake Havasu State Park’s Windsor Beach facility is unacceptable.

The manager says tourism, boating and Lake Havasu itself are a prime focus of future revenue.

Lake Havasu City Mayor Mark Nexsen says it doesn’t matter who runs the park as long as it stays open.
