A Monticello community park is being restored.
Mayor Larry Stoner indicates the park which sits across the street from the Monticello Municipal Building and off one of their main roads, will undergo an extensive renovation as we head towards the spring season.
According to the Mayor, eventually the park will expand to include a gazebo dedicated to a young resident who had passed away. He says the park renovation will be implemented in several phases.
Park improvements have been the focus of Monticello in recent years. Mayor Stoner indicates they have a five year plan that includes developing about 30 acres and makes quite an investment in their parks.
The park restoration for Monticello comes ahead of a likely ground breaking this spring for the community's planned new water treatment facility.
