Editorial: City should lease space for livery
The beauty of the River Raisin has caught the eye of a West Virginia businessman who has an interest in leasing a vacant garage at the community center for a start-up livery business for canoe and kayak rentals.
Tecumseh City Council has an opportunity to assist in bringing the new business to town after it was informed of the proposal by local attorney Chuck Gross, a long-time supporter of Indian Crossing Trails Park and a water recreation enthusiast.
The proposition could be a win-win for the city as it would receive revenue from the lease and be free of managing its own livery, which isn’t practical now that the recreation department has relocated to Smith Park.
A full-time livery would add substantially to the opportunities for expanded use of Globe Mill Pond and the River Raisin, and coincides with efforts to promote Tecumseh as a destination point for visitors.
