Park & Rec Committee: The Park hosted the Edge the Ledge Adventure Race on August 27th. The only problem was limited water supply for rinsing mud off of participants. The Committee intends to consult with the promoter for any future races.
The Schmitz parkland purchase has been revised and is scheduled for Board approval.
The Committee has the opportunity to purchase a fully-equipped Alpine II trail groomer for $1,500.00. The Town's existing snowmobile has been very problematic due to the fact that it is geared for racing not trail grooming. The Committee requests authorization to sell the snowmobile and use the funds to purchase the Alpine II with additional funds derived from donations.
