LAGRANGE – If all goes well, Lagrange Town Park could have a splash pad and a more inclusive playground by next summer.
Clerk-Treasurer Laurie Miller told the town board last night that she was notified that they would receive a grant of $20,000 from the LaGrange County Community Foundation for the project.
The splash pad and new equipment would be chosen to be inclusive of all ages and abilities.
Miller said the committee will get quotes and discuss further fundraising for the project before the next town board meeting.
The Clerk-Treasurer apparently had a splash pad in her office recently. Water intrusion damaged the flooring and desk. Town Board President Ray Hoover said the Town Hall Building has a drainage problem that needs to be addressed before repairs to the office are done. The board authorized Miller to pursue the needed changes and repairs.
