Park Board stays in black

Sunday, January 10, 2010

The Brazil City Parks Board had its first meeting of 2010 Wednesday at Brazil City Hall.

Treasurer Linda Messmer was pleased to report the park had money left over from its 2009 budget.

"We spent 99.69 percent of our 2009 budget," Messmer said. "We had $733.25 in the black."

With the beginning of the new year, the board also held re-election of officers.

In a 3-0-1 vote, the board elected Ruth Ann Jeffries to remain President, Todd Brackman as Vice President and Messmer as Treasurer. Caroline McCullough was also voted back to serve as Secretary.

Jeffries abstained from voting.

The board then moved on to discuss the five-year master plan, which allows the parks to be able to apply for state and federal grants.

The park board worked with representative of the Clay Community Parks Association Wilma Dean Baker on the plan.

"I think we have covered everything they wanted us to cover," Jeffries said. "I would like to thank you Wilma Dean, for everything you have done."

"Yes, we never would've gotten this done without you," Messmer added.

Baker expressed her delight in working with the board.

"It was nice for everyone to sit down and make a plan with goals and accomplishments from the last plan such as fishing fun day," she said. "I'm so happy that everyone worked on it together."

Due to weather conditions, and the lack of people in attendance, discussion of a future dog park was tabled.

The next meeting of the Brazil City Parks Board will be 7 p.m., Wednesday, Feb. 3, in the Council Chambers at Brazil City Hall.
