Mack Park stairs were further discussed as being unusable. Jason Silva will relate the problem to the Park Department to be investigated.

Mac Park has also been approved for $35,000. A committee will be formed to help decide how it should be improved.

Feb. 9 Update:

Ward 6 Councilor Paul Prevey spoke to the Mayor’s chief of staff, Jason Silva, who said that he will speak with the director of Park & Recreation, Doug Bollen, to  come up with a plan to fix the stairs. With the winter, people rely on the stairs to get up to Mack Park and they are dangerous. The neighborhood may have some monies available from the Capital Improvement Plan fund.
