Skate Park

Review of equipment catalogue for skate parks. Geraldine provided a brief history of the start of the park and the original equipment and input for the equipment. Edwin suggested the parks board should contact the public through the local paper and let users of the park know to come to the next meeting to  give input concerning what type of equipment, meaning ramps, rails, etc, should be purchased. L.D. also noted that he would like more input from the users of the park on what type of equipment should be purchased. It was suggested that if there is no input concerning the equipment the parks board should hold the money and use it for repairs to existing structures connected with the skate park.
