Looking for a Golden update

I'm in Cali, and will be tell half way through may. I was wondering if any improvements are being made to the Golden park. It needs it. Last time I was down there was the middle of march I saw some big equipment, and I got my hopes up. Anyway, whats the word?

The library hole will get some minor repairs in the next 2 weeks (hopefully we can make it work a little better with some tweeks) because it fell apart. $$$ is what we need in order to fix/re-do more drops.

Golden drops

Good to hear Golden is getting some attention. The Library hole definitely needs more than a tweak. I'm thinking it needs an excavator, maybe five yards of concrete, and a few well-placed boulders. Maybe to people in the business this is tweaking. I remember last year when the chunk on river right let go, stood upright, and became one wicked strainer for those unfortunate tubers with no pfd's and no river sense. We hauled a couple of them out by their very scared little necks. As much as I appreciate a lesson learned and all that stuff, it may be better for civilians to make the hole look and act like a ride at Disney.

On the money side, I thought these parks generate major cash for the host city. Any way to drag the civic pot for repairs?

Think snow!
