Roanoke council discusses upgrades to park at May 2 meeting

The Roanoke Town Council discussed making upgrades to Roanoke Park during its meeting on Tuesday, May 2.

Council Vice President Troy Karshner expressed interest in replacing a bridge nearby the park’s ball diamonds and directed Town Supervisor of Operations Phil Hibbert to look into replacement options.

Karshner also stated that he would like to see a wood deck constructed by the concession stand for use as a grilling platform, noting that the stand’s current grill sits on uneven ground. Councilman Cory Cartwright suggested pouring a patch of concrete instead, stating that it would be cheaper.
