District 6 City Councilor Matt O'Malley

O’Malley: Let’s Put Sunscreen Dispensers in Parks

The city councilor representing Jamaica Plain has floated the idea of the city installing no-cost sunscreen stations at all Boston parks. District Six City Councilor Matt O'Malley put in an order for Wednesday's council meeting to "explore the installation of sunscreen dispenser stations in Boston's parks." According to the Globe, Boston wouldn't be the first city to offer such a service. Miami Beach already does it, with costs underwritten by allowing advertising on the dispensers.
