Lake Concessions

Posted on 21st March 2014 at 15:54

It’s likely that you’ll be able to rent a kayak while enjoying a tasty shave ice treat this summer at Lake Sacajawea, as the Longview City Council approves two applications for concessions at the park. Mayor Don Jensen says these concessions could help to boost the enjoyment of the lake…lakeconcessions…City staff says that this has actually been in discussion for a couple of years, with a “Request for Proposals” issued about a year ago. Parks Director Dave Campbell says that there had been no activity until last month, when Jonathon Rodeback of Castle Rock submitted the application for the shave ice trailer, and then Dave Naillon with Sasquatch Adventures sent in the application for the kayak concession. The City Council voted unanimously to direct staff to negotiate contracts for both concessions, which would be conducted as one-year pilot projects. Both concessions are planning to run from May through September. Rodeback would be open Monday through Saturday, opening at 11 am each day near the Hemlock Plaza. The site for Naillon’s kayak concession hasn’t been settled, but he’s planning to be open seven days a week, open during the afternoon and evening hours. City officials are hopeful that these contracts can be settled in time to get these concessions open this spring.
