I would bet that most of the ones complaining about the additional fee also complain about their City taxes being too high. Maybe this could have been handled differently, but the City can't lose money or subsidize "fundraisers".

The made $1000 less then they would have didn't they? Seems I read if it wasn't reserved it was free for anyone to use. What part of that didn't they understand of their new rule? Did the city expect them to move in set up have the show and be out all in the same day? Sure charge them for use of the park, but use some common sense too. Park wasn't reserved the day before or the day after shouldn't have been a issue except maybe for the campers. Just my opinion which doesn't mean crap. None of our opinions mean crap, get used to it folks they make the rules and do as they like regardless of what the people think or want!

In all actuality they could have been charged with trespassing. The park isn't open 24hrs and it isn't a camp ground either.

Oh, hogwash. If they made money, they'll be back. You freeloaders are the reason why China owns us.

They didn't even hook up for electric or water so they shouldn't have been charged. "Free-it's-not" and "NO" are gonna run all the potential fund raising out of town.

I think Warren should be renamed "Jump to Conclusionville" How many times a day does someone in Warren start complaining about something they know nothing about?!
