  • Lights out at Veterans Memorial Park?

     

    The work on the electrical system on two of the fields at Veterans Memorial Park could cost an additional $67,000.

    Contractor Tim Edwards said inspectors have to determine whether or not the wooden light poles on the fields need to be replaced.

    While replacement of the poles is a line item on Edwards' proposal, magistrates decided not to include it to keep the price under $110,000. With the line items chosen, the project was set to cost $106,856.97.
