CLOVERDALE -- A meeting that had never before taken place between town and park officials happened Saturday.
Park board and town council members met jointly for the first time to review the budget and project list for Cloverdale Community Park.
"It was a productive meeting," commented Ron Jones, park board president.
Drainage issues at the park were addressed. Council members are currently working on that particular issue throughout the town. Council president Don Sublett said Cloverdale qualifies for a grant to resolve the storm water problem. Steve Caulkins, town council vide-president, is currently working on the grant and a study.
The Civic League may be sponsoring a walking path around the perimeter of the park. More information on this will be available at a later date.
"A lot of things in the park will require a touch up (once the weather breaks)," Jones noted.
Landscaping will also be done once the weather warms up. New lights around the playground equipment will be installed.
"Town council is behind the park board," said council member Terry Puffer.
Internet has already been installed near the cabin in the park. It is free for any resident with a wireless Internet connection. In the spring, signs for the service will be posted on Lafayette Street.
Cloverdale Community Park is funded through the town and was established in 1991.
