DEWEY STREET LITIGATION IS OVER

 

The Dewey Street issue has finally been put to rest. The March Kingsbury Park District Board meeting started out with public input and concern over how much the Dewey Street trial has cost the taxpayers and when it was going to end. Board President Dave Barby said the whole issue was brought on because of concern for the safety of the children. When it was pressed further as to when it was all going to end, the board went into executive session. They came out with the decision that after talking with the city, the litigation will be over. The city agreed to a 60 ft. right-of-way, replacement of a drain pipe at the ball field, installation of a baffle at the end of Chestnut Street, with the parks discretion, along with gates and traffic control.

 

The board decided to located the Skateboard Park at the Pool Park close to where the volleyball court is now. Awards were given to individuals for collecting fundraising money for the Skateboard Park. Brendon Roadman was recognized for collecting $2,127 and Sabastian Neudeck for collecting $1,740. Not present for the award was Bradley Duft, collecting $1,000.
