The Galt Junior Warriors football and cheer programs will no longer be overseen by the city’s Parks and Recreation Department following a decision Tuesday by the city council.

Instead, the organization will operate its own program with equipment donated by the city.

Since 1988, when the Dry Creek Youth Sports organization dissolved, the city has offered youth sports activities. Due to the liability and competitiveness, however, it has sought for the Galt Junior Warriors advisory program oversee tackle football and youth cheer.

The change was first discussed last year.

Tuesday’s decision means the city will lose about $18,300 annually in Parks and Recreation revenue from registration and game day gate fees, but save roughly $8,500 in expenses.

Galt staff researched seven cities and found none of them offered tackle youth football programs.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
