Camp Hutchins parents call meeting

Parents of children that attend Camp Hutchins are frustrated by the lack of transparency in the process of the city asking Lodi Memorial Hospital to pay rent for the Hutchins Street Square space, and the hospitals refusal to do so.

The parents will meet Friday at 5:30 at the park behind the Square, and plan to speak at Wednesday’s City Council meeting in hopes of resurrecting talks between the city and the hospital.

I’ve been told by a hospital spokeswoman that anything more than the $1-a-year lease that equates to a city subsidy is not doable. The city said they want rent, and talks died quickly. The hospital said they will close the day care in July.

In a letter to me, parent Christina Short said she thinks there is a compromise to be found. She and her fellow parents vow to fight for the day care to remain open.
