Few details have been released about why the city terminated its Lions Campground contract with its service provider just two weeks before the end of the season.
The city has taken over the operations until the end of the season on Oct. 1.
This was the second year the contractor operated the campground.
“There was a contravention to the contract itself,” said Greg Scott, director of community services.
“We felt it necessary take the action that we did. That’s all I can say about it at this point but I can say we are conducting a detailed investigation. It will be explored further over the next few weeks just what has been in place.”
Scott said the change has been done in away so there’s little or no impact to the campers. The existing reservations will be honoured. There will be security in place in the evenings.
“We will continue to operate until Oct. 1 which is normally the end of the season,” said Scott.
The Lions Campground customer service booth is open from 5 to 10 p.m., seven days a week with security from 8 p.m. to 7 a.m.
