Why turn the beach into a bog?

— To the News Enterprise:

Perhaps if the beach had been named Veteran's Memorial Beach rather than Grunblatt Memorial Beach the three Town Board members, who blithely approved permanent closure of the only viable public swimming place in Johnsburg, might have been more thoughtful. For a second time in as many months councilors Arsenault and Morehouse took a more reasoned approach to the beach problem in their support for a sanitary survey to be completed which would clearly identify specific problems and recommend an abatement plan based on water testing, research and facts.

How will, I ask again, the historians write of the 2011 Town Board members who committed this commemorative recreational asset (even if troubled) to an ignominious end clogged with cattails and loosestrife on a fast track to 'bogdom?'
