top ten projects would be.

top priorities for 2010 to 2014 which included safety concerns.
said a couple years ago the Board approved building a restroom at the Lake Ann Park.
said since then there has been a lot of debate about whether there is enough use at this location to justify the cost of the restroom, and he
said they have looked at some other options.
The General Manager said the issue that the Administration has run into is that the area is in a flood zone, and we would have to build it up considerably which would be in the line of sight of homes in the area.
showed some other options and said the Administration recommends at this time that the project be halted, that they continue to question whether this park has the usage to require this type of expenditure, and that the money be put back for other projects.
The General Manager said he

asked the Board to allow them to cancel the project.
