Today marks Nine Years since I was appointed to City Council in 2014 after the death of Councilman Bill Sweeney. Bill was a huge supporter of sports & recreation in the community, and the City named the sled hill at Spindler Park after him.
Since then, I believe we have made a lot of strides in our parks. This year we had a duo of innovative changes at Spindler Park: a story walk, and permanent corn hole boards. Many other positive changes have been made over the recent years also, not only at Spindler Park, but also at Kennedy Park, Memorial Park, Goetz Park, Roxana Park, and others. This past year we made an awesome change at Rein Park, creating a walking path around the outside of the park, along with benches and garbage cans.
