The board also talked about having a skate park built in Nichols Park, an idea many parents in the community support. The town has committed to help construct the blacktop that will be the base of the park, but additional funds are needed for the equipment and for a fence that will surround it.
The county has requested a proposal for community youth investment grant money. If the town gets the money, it hopes to use it to build a fence around the park. Contributions from the community are being encouraged to help raise money for the equipment, and those interested in doing so can call 765-4027.
