Bing wants to put some immediate pain in people's lives by doing this to punish council for voting against the Belle Isle deal.

The city gives up the savings of six million annually for the island and loses out on the fact that the state was about to spend a bundle on the island bringing it up to state park standards, which are quite high.

This rejection had nothing really to do with the closing of the 50 parks. They were going to close anyway. Mayor Bing merely used the occasion to rankle city council.

And congratulations on your move there Phil!
