Ind. Gov't. - "DNR hearing officer backs state park alcohol ruling change"

More on the Indiana Dunes Pavilion alcohol controversy, via a story yesterday by Amy Lavalley in the Gary Post-Tribune. (List of earlier posts.) The lengthy story begins:

A change to bring a state rule into compliance with a new state law that allowed the Indiana Department of Natural Resources to apply for a liquor permit for the pavilion at Indiana Dunes State Park recently got an apparent boost.

The hearing officer who presided over a public hearing on the change held in late November at Woodland Park recommended the state's Natural Resources Commission make the change in a filing made public Tuesday on the DNR's website for the pavilion project.

The commission is scheduled to consider the matter during a Jan. 17 meeting in Indianapolis.

The 145-page filing, which includes public comments made at the hearing as well as those submitted electronically and by mail, also includes a DNR response to concerns raised by the public about safety and other matters if liquor were made available along the lakefront.

ILB: Here is the 145-page report.
