The Illinois Department of Natural Resources announced Wednesday that they will be closing Horseshoe Lake State Park indefinitely due to electrical and trash service interruptions because the state has yet to appropriate funds to keep them afloat.
State Senator Bill Haine (D-Alton) released the following statement:
“I am troubled and frustrated to hear about the closing of Horseshoe Lake State Park. This great state park is a source of recreation for many people throughout my district. This is a prime example of how the budget impasse is trickling down into the facets of people’s everyday lives. We need to fix this issue and we need to fix it now.”
