The Lake Hemet Municipal Water District board of directors extended its management contract for Lake Hemet Campground with The California Parks Company, Urban Parks Concessionaires. The extension, containing the same terms as the original contract, runs through Friday, Nov. 30, 2014.
The water district board had previously placed a notice of termination for UPC’s contract on its Jan. 17 agenda along with a request for other companies to submit proposals to lease and manage the campground.
UPC had negotiated for different terms that the board ultimately was unwilling to accept. When UPC subsequently decided to sign under the original terms and Board Attorney Joe Wojcik presented the board with a signed agreement from the UPC with the same terms as before, the board voted to rescind their notice of termination and accept the contract extension.
