Skate park back in play

-A A +A
By Carol A. Clark

Thought to be settled by a 6-1 vote a week ago, the county council agreed Tuesday to put the deeply divisive skate park project back on the agenda for reconsideration. They will decide whether to put the park’s location to a vote of the people.

“This is a petition that recommends a different course of action than what’s been recommended in the past,” said Council Chair Jim Hall. “I don’t think we have a choice on this and I think we will put it on the agenda....”

Council agreed to revisit the issue following a presentation by Mike Wismer who was representing a group of petitioners.

“I stand before you tonight to do something I didn’t think I would ever be doing, but the sheer volume of input I have received on this matter compelled me to bring a petition to you,” he said. “Since the subject of the petition is a rather controversial one, I need to address two important components and then I will get into the details.”

Wismer said the petitioners, and everyone else he has talked to about the skate park, agree that the council and each member of the council are hardworking, dedicated public servants who strive to make the best decision for the community.
