"Over the course of this next year, one of our main goals is to comprehensively look at our city parks and make some much-needed improvements. We've done a great job developing Jawbone Park and the area around it, but the city park on Park Street and our five other Parks also need attention," Skinner said.

"In 2022, the City's first ever Parks and Recreation Board was created by ordinance and the members of that board are set to have their first meeting next week. I am confident that this energetic group will help us to realize the goals of improving all of our parks," he said.

"Council, as we work on our 2023 and 2024 budgets, I'm asking that we consider an allocation of funds to support the efforts and the suggestions of our board and committee members toward improving our parks and facilities", he concluded.
