Havelock moves forward with grant bid for Slocum park

“Good job to all of you all,” Mayor Jimmy Sanders said after the vote.

Commissioner Danny Walsh said he would like to see the picnic tables in a highly visible area.

“I want the picnic tables to be as close to highway 70 as possible to show it off,” he said.

The board also voted unanimously to set aside $7,500 from the reserve fund to be paid to the Wooten Company for creation of a site plan for the park.

The board considered, but decided against, seeking a Parks and Recreation Trust Fund grant to create a master plan for all city recreation areas.

Commissioner Will Lewis suggested holding off until 2015.

“I think that’s going to be the smartest move,” City manager Jim Freeman said.
