Councilmen to recommend closure of Vinton park
VINTON - The Vinton skate park is unlikely to remain open at its current location.
Councilmen Kevin Merchant and Bliss Bujard say they expect a recommendation to have the park closed will be heard at the council's April meeting.
Both Merchant and Bujard serve on a committee that is considering what to do with the skate park.
At its February meeting, the council shut down the park for 90 days after repeated fights there.
Merchant said it is possible the park could be moved to an area of town where there is more supervision.
Bujard said it would cost Vinton $20,000 a year to pay someone to supervise the park and $30,000 to move it.
