Letter to the editor: Protect children from river down at the park
February 5, 2021
I have sent notes to the Cloquet City Council and park board about the safety concerns at the park and playground on Dunlap Island. There is no fence to protect kids from accidentally falling into the river. We have lost people in the river either by snowmobile or just falling in. It would be a terrible situation to have a child fall into the river and nobody be able to get to them fast enough. Are we going to wait until this happens, like so many times, or are we going to get the city to put a fence along the river’s edge to protect the children of our community.
