City Parks Cleanup

City staff has just cleaned up graffiti and re-mulched city parks this week. Lawson, Vanlaningham, Cunningham, Peterson, and Kinzel have all been improved. Staff will continue to address issues with these parks including equipment repairs and replacement. City Administrator Sue Mclaughlin also states that she hopes to institute better policies to maintain the parks in good condition. She also hopes to engage residents and neighborhoods surrounding these parks to cut down on vandalism and other issues as part of Operation Community Pride.
