St. Joseph County’s Board of Commissioners last week agreed to a modification regarding its lease agreement with renters at the Meyer Broadway Park house.
Tenants Dan and Sarah Hershberger have requested use of an attached, two-car garage known as Dimmick Lodge. The Hershbergers said they wish to park their vehicles inside the structure, and have offered to pay an additional $100 a month for the opportunity.
After finding out Dimmick Lodge has been leased for public use only 29 times in the past five years thanks to improvements at the north end of the park, commissioners granted the request. One condition, however, calls for removing vehicles from the garage on occasions when Dimmick Lodge is reserved for use.
