SYLVAN BEACH- The Village of Sylvan Beach and the Oneida County Health Department are one step closer to turning signs from, “swim at your own risk” to “no swimming”. According to the Mayor of Sylvan Beach, Greg Horan, the swim area behind Dicastro’s banquet facility could potentially be closed in the next few weeks.

All of this comes after the Village of Sylvan Beach got rid of all their lifeguards just two months ago. Now, parents are forced to keep a closer eye on their child.

“That’s why I got the floaties on them,” said Meegan Bilodeau of Camden. “Just in case they get too far away.”

Some parents are keeping an eye on their kids, as well as others in the area.

“Now I’m not just looking after my kids out here,” said Redell Parker, of Waterville. “But I’ll be having to watch every kid out here.”

The Mayor of Sylvan Beach tells WKTV this closure could happen within the next two weeks. This would include roughly a 125-feet long and 250-foot deep swimming area directly behind Dicastro’s. NewsChannel 2’s Cody Mooney spoke with the manager of Dicastro’s who says this closure would be beneficial to the business. However, Parker says it could potentially hurt business.

“I’ve on it for over 30 years,” said Parker. “It would be a little difficult but people will just find another place.”
