First Park Board Meeting
This week I had the pleasure of running my first Village Park Board meeting of 2006. January isn’t a busy time for village parks so it was an easy, uneventful meeting.
We did mention the request by Electric City Riders to hold races on a frozen Collins Lake and as I expected there wasn’t enough support to consider the concept. It looks like the ice fisherman will have the lake to themselves.
We will however be voting in February on a request by “Cycling the Erie Canal” to use our meadows area of the park as a stop on their Eighth Annual Bike Tour, July 9–16th, 2006. This would be the third year the bikers will get a chance to enjoy the hospitality of the village. I’m sure the Freedom Park Foundation will try and choose appropriate entertainment for the night.
