The City of San Angelo informed the public that Twin Buttes Reservoir will be closed July 4th weekend, citing last year's problems with fireworks trash. The public got less than a week's notice that they will be unable to enjoy one of San Angelo's three lakes.
The Bureau of Reclamation has an agreement with the City of San Angelo to operate the park on the north shore of the North Pool. The Bureau of Reclamation highlights recreation use at its locations, including Twin Buttes Reservoir.
Manages, with partners, 289 recreation sites that have 90 million visits annually.
There will be no visits this weekend. It's unclear if City Council played a role in this major policy change. Council did approve a Master Recreation Plan for Twin Buttes in 2013. The city solicited public input into the plan, something not sought in the July 4th shutdown.
poorly communicated decision by city staff.
