As of Monday nobody has reserved Hughes Beach or the Rotary Shelter – at a price of $500 – for Lodi Lake Fourth of July festivities.
Lodi spends roughly $50,000 for its Fourth of July, including fireworks. The shelters are popular areas that the city thought could draw rental interest in an effort to recoup a sliver of the budget.
“No takers yet,” Interim Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services Director Jeff Hood said on Monday.
The spots can still be reserved.
