At the Howard Village Board meeting on Monday, April 24, the Howard Village Board voted 6-3 to open the Duck Creek Quarry swimming beach to a limited number of non-residents for a season fee.
• Admission is still free for Howard residents, who will get a wristband for each person in their household, plus an additional two guest wristbands. There is an unlimited quantity of resident wristbands.
• Non-resident wristbands are available for $50 per household (up to five people) for the season. These wristbands will be available through a lottery system, and the limit is 250 non-resident households or a total of 1,250 wristbands.
• Wristbands for both residents and non-residents will be available only by going to the Howard Public Works Department, filling out a form, and showing a photo ID (and paying the non-resident fee, if applicable). Wristbands will not be mailed and won’t be available at the beach.
• Wristbands have been ordered. Wristbands will not be available until Thursday, May 11th. The Village of Howard will post on their website and on social media when they are available, as well as the hours people can go get them.
• The quarry beach will be open 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. daily beginning the Friday of Memorial Day weekend and running through Labor Day Monday.
• As always, Duck Creek Quarry Park is open sunrise to sunset for all to enjoy.
