ByDONFREEHAFER City Editor Income from France Park this year is $10,000 ahead of last year. Keneth Bennett, county park superintendent, told the Cass Park and Recreation Board Wednesday night that the park income to July 13 was $70,778.61 compared with $60,729.15 at the same time last year. A total of 47,083 people already have used the park this year, including 37,236 who went through the gate, 8,179 campers, and 1,668 divers and climbers. The gate income is up from $29,951.75 to $37,236 and concessison stand income is up from $6,094.65 to $8,735.61. Camping income is up from $22,162 to $22,305, but scuba diving income is down slightly from $2,520.75 to $2,502.

The Park Board announced there will be a free gate Saturday and Sunday for the Iron Horse Festival, but there will be a box at the gate beginning today where park goers may place contributions for the "Save The Train" campaign. The board agreed that winter activities will be expanded. Davi'd LaPierre said he would like to see a toboggan run, development of cross country skiing and skating. The playground also will be improved, the board decided. Bennett said a shower house is needed in the camping area.

It will be included in the 1985 budget since the 1984 budget already has been submitted to the county council. As part of a long range program the board discussed the possibility of placing a water wheel at the falls to generate electricity for use in the park. Board members said, however, they do not want to do anything to destroy the beauty of the falls. Charles Remley, board president, said the $2,000 grant the board received in December, 1979, from the National Campers and Hikers Association has been used for the purchase of crushed stone at the entrance and parking area of the new Woodland Acres park near the county home. The county highway department provided the manpower and machinery for laying the stone.

He also announced that the park board believes the extensive camping facilities at France Park have reached their maximum capacity. There are 110 new electric outlets in the camping area this year, and 56 of the camp sites also have new water facilities. Road Closed By Washsout County Road 200 East between 1100 and 1125 South will be closed today and tomorrow. County Highway Supt. Donald Miller said the was the result of a washout which is being repaired by the highway department.
