Commissioner Ballenger asked Tim Followell to explain about the playground equipment at Downey Park and he stated it is in bad shape so it has been taped off and posted closed and will be taken down when time permits and replaced sometime in the future.

Commissioner Ballenger stated there was an article in the newspaper regarding the Fire Training Facility. He has always informed the public through the radio (WHOW) what is being done at the facility. All the doors are locked when not in use, the buildings will be painted red and there will be a fence going up around it. If the public would just realize all of this takes time to get done and it will get done. The department is lucky to have this facility right here in town so they don’t have to go out of town for training. If anyone has concerns please get a hold of Commissioner Ballenger.
