Libertyland, Part 1,287

Posted on Tue, Oct 2, 2007 at 4:00 AM

Libertyland advocates had another reason to say, "pip, pip hooray," after Tuesday's City Council meeting.

The parks committee voted in favor of a resolution preserving and protecting both the Grand Carousel and the Zippin Pippin pending further study.

"Basically, [this will] save it for the time being," said resolution sponsor Myron Lowery.

Committee chair Scott McCormick questioned whether the resolution might mean unforeseen expenditures.

"This could go on for another two years. The Pippin is a wooden structure. What if the wood starts to rot?" he asked. "Are we going to have to rebuild it?"

Lowery said the intent was to keep the roller coaster in its current state: "Let's save the Pippin."
