Berrien County Board To Take Up Life Rings March 13

The Berrien County Board of Commissioners will debate two different proposals regarding pier safety at Silver Beach County Park next Thursday. Commissioner Jeanette Leahey has been at the forefront of a drive to add up to 13 life rings to the South Pier. Her resolution would separate the life ring issue from a possible ban on pier jumping.


Commissioner Mack Elliott has another resolution calling for collaboration with the city of St. Joseph to enact the same safety initiatives at Tiscornia Park and the North Pier as well.


The issue has been debated several times since last summer. Leahey wants a decision made soon to have enough time to have life rings on the pier by May if approved.
