Dillon marina history a lesson for Frisco

Bernie Baltich’s Nov. 28 letter certainly reflects the mood of a marina operator who has been left out in the cold. Hopefully he has success in his future endeavors. Taking over the marina operation is obviously a bold step for the town of Frisco, but done right it can become a great asset. I was on the Dillon Town Council when the decision was made to bring its marina in-house when the current operator’s lease expired. It was a big step for the town and in order to ease the transition, the town engaged another entity to manage the facility.When this approach became a financial burden on the town, the decision was made to terminate the management agreement and the town took over operation of the facility. I would be surprised today if anyone would say that the town did not make the right decision. At last check, the Dillon marina continues to be a class act for the town, both financially and operationally. With proper planning and management, the town of Frisco also has the opportunity to turn its marina into a classy operation. I encourage the town to consult with the town of Dillon and its excellent marina manager, Bob Evans, in order to insure a smooth transition. Good luck, Frisco.
