Bonnyville council agrees that that they want to make some improvements to the splash park in town.
During Tuesday’s meeting, council agreed that building a parking lot and wash and change rooms for the park was a good idea. Right now the curbside parking situation presents a danger to parents and kids getting in and out of cars on the street.
While there’s already money in the capital budget for parking, council decided to try and seek a grant announced by the federal government for Canada’s 150th Anniversary to secure funding for the change rooms. If successful, Ottawa would match every dollar the town puts into them.
