ETNA GREEN — The Etna Green Town Council decided on a King’s Landing in Heritage Park, last night, May 10.
Laura Baker, clerk/treasurer, gave the council options of new playground equipment to purchase for Heritage Park: Ruby Rocket for $19,306, Double Bubble for $25,714 or King’s Landing for $22,788 (all prices include shipping).
The council chose King’s Landing, which will be placed in the area between the playground and the shop area, close to the concession stand. The council also has to put in gravel and edging for the equipment and will be looking for price quotes.
A Kosciusko Community Foundation grant will be paying a portion of the equipment purchase and the council has made the offer of a $25,000 grant match.
