Vincennes City Council approved on first reading a just over 155-thousand, 500 dollar set of improvements to the City’s parks. The funding comes from leftover money from development of the Vincennes Riverwalk.
Part of the funding will go toward seating and trash can improvements. Another part will also serve the Riverwalk, by improving the restrooms in the Tade Building near the Hart Street trailhead. The facilities will then be opened to the public. The remainder will be focused on the Gregg Park Shelter House project, and changing the Gregg Park tennis courts into pickleball courts.
In other business, the Vincennes City Council has made final approval on funding to fix the netting at the top of the Riverfront Pavilion. The netting is designed to keep birds from roosting at the top of the facility.
The additional appropriation is for just under 11-thousand five hundred dollars. Council members passed the measure unanimously.
