This week's McCall Star-News reports McCall officials have been presented a list of recommendations after learning about the North Beach Fourth of July "madness."
"It is a drunken disorderly crowd. They are disrespectful and they damage things," said Ponderosa State Park Manager Richard Taplin, adding the troublemakers are not locals. "It is an attitude of 'I don't live here, I don't care.'"
Meanwhile, a representative from the McCall Chamber of Commerce told the council several businesses closed early on July 4, rather than deal with rowdy crowds.
"Its not the spenders, it's the suckers," said Chamber Director of Information Services Nicole Musgrove. "They are draining the life out of our medical services, our police force, and it is not good for McCall."
The Star-News reports the council has set a community meeting to address the issue later this fall, when the public will be able to weigh in on several proposals including the possibility of North Beach going alcohol-free on the Fourth of July.
