Candidates for Streets and Public Improvements in Clinton recently discussed the future of city parks.
A lack of maintenance and in some cases vandalism in city parks have left many in poor shape heading into the April election and a couple candidates discussed what they'd like to see done. Challenger Mike Bray says a monetary investment would likely have to be made, though he doesn't know just how much is available to do so.
Incumbent Commissioner Nan Crang calls Clinton "a park town". She says there may not be an answer to what to do about the parks, but hopes the community will take an active role in seeking to improve the parks.
The Council recently passed a tax that would allow part of the revenue generated to go towards community parks.
The City Council is also currently investing in an evaluation in Kiwanis Park's ultimate play space.
