The Parks and Recreation Board meets on the 1st Tuesday of each month at 6:30PM at the Adminstration Building.
Municipal and Friendship park shelters can be reserved on weekends for a small fee. To do so, contact the city office at 441-9604. Requests are accepted beginning January, so make your plans early, if possible.
These activities and projects, plus our continuing program of improving our parks, gives us a full agenda for the year, but we are always looking for community feedback. The Commission welcomes city residents’ ideas on events and recreational features which you would like to add to our list, so feel free to stop by our meetings and give us your thoughts. Our monthly meetings have been rescheduled to the first Tuesday of each month at 6:30 p.m.
