Town Campground Director Reappointed
The Lisbon (N.Y.) Town Council voted in favor of reappointing Lisbon Beach and Campground Director Michael J. O’Neil at Wednesday’s meeting, ending months of speculation over whether it would seek another person to fill the position, the Watertown Daily Times reported.
O’Neil said he was always hopeful that the Town Council would vote in favor of keeping him on board.
“This is something that I took on because it’s my life,” he said. “I have a desire to keep going with the beach. I feel really good about taking care of [campers] and dealing with them and moving on with the beach and campground.”
Seven people attended Wednesday’s meeting to support O’Neil.
Lisbon resident Susan McLear said she has camped at the beach every year since 1981 and O’Neil has done an admirable job of making the beach a destination for people in the region and even around the world.
