RV park expansion begins in Brewster

BREWSTER – Work has begun on the city’s RV park expansion, located off South Seventh Street.

The project will add six full hook-up sites, sprucing up the former three overflow slots that only provided electricity, Public Works Director J.D. Smith said.

He estimated the project should be finished within two to three weeks. The Goehry Memorial Basketball Court on Cliff Avenue is making a comeback as well and should be finished in about the same time, Smith said.
