- In other action
On Wednesday, the Lodi City Council also:
- Approved spending $42,000 to cover a portion of the well closure costs related to Lodi’s ongoing groundwater contamination cleanup. This will close 16 wells in the Busy Bee plume, near Main and Sacramento streets, and is the final piece of city’s portion of cleanup responsibilities.
- Gave a “Parks Make Life Better Month” proclamation to Steve Dutra, parks superintendent.
- Approved installing streetlights at the Walnut and Sacramento streets intersection, along with other street improvements.
- The LOEL Center has taken control of the Senior Center at Hutchins Street Square to streamline senior activities and give programs more room to spread out.
- Approved new fees for using the Grape Bowl. The stadium is now $25 cheaper per hour to rent, and the rest of the amenities can be used one at a time. That includes the concession stand, locker rooms and the press box.

Avoiding the vehicle entrance fee at Lodi Lake Park this summer could lead to a $50 fine, thanks to a new ordinance passed by the Lodi City Council on Wednesday.
Currently, park users only pay to bring in a car if the Turner Road booth is staffed. But no one is there to collect fees before 9 a.m. or after 5 p.m., so many visitors slip through without paying since the park is open from dawn until dusk. That means the city is losing out on tens of thousands of dollars a year, said Jeff Hood, director of Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services.
