5 Year Master Plan
Professor Segedy needed to have the
information sent to him again to complete the project. The plan should now be
completed shortly, being several months late. When completed, the plan will be
distributed among the Parks Board members for review. Then the plan will be
presented to the
Skate Park/Multi-Purpose Building
Severe damage was done to the newly completed structure on numerous consecutive nights. Much to the dismay of the Parks Board and the Street Department, who labored so hard to complete the structure, the facility faces a crisis in maintenance costs and faces a limited use policy. The police cannot provide adequate security nor patrol the area in a manner that would lessen the possibility of future vandalism. When the town lawyer was asked about a reward for information leading to the vandals, the lawyer suggested tearing down the facility. The Parks Board is discussing with the ball diamond facilities manager to help open and close the facilities during and after games. There has been great response and appreciation from the people involved with the sports fields concerning the restrooms. There is also a plan to hire someone to open the facility in the morning and then close the structure in the evening. This is similar in procedure to what happens at the Flatwoods county park. This will demand the installation of additional locks and the hiring of a person to take on the task.
Edwin Macatangay motioned to hire a person to open and close the restroom facility every day opening the facility between 5-9 AM and closing between 7:30-8-30 PM starting on April 1st and ending on or about September 30th. The payment allotted for the service will be $5.00 per day, 7 days a week. Jeff Frownfelter seconded the motion. The motion is to be in effect upon the installation of new locks and the hiring of a person for the job. Some citizens are already in mind and the Board is hopeful this can be accomplished in the very near future.
