Logansport Parks and Recreation Board President Terry Doran said it will be important to establish a proper line of communication with participants of the program to ensure the proper care of the properties continues.
“They have to at least live up to the standards we have had in the past,” he said.
The possibility of transferring the maintenance of these non-park properties to the Logansport Street Department was discussed at last month’s parks and recreation board meeting. While Logansport Superintendent of Public Works Dan Williams has said he is open to the idea, Fawley said she would rather see the locations go into the hands of local residents or organizations.
“The street department does stuff for us all the time,” she said, as does Logansport Municipal Utilities. “This is something for us to do for them. It’s a great partnership. None of us could operate without the others.”
Fawley said she is working to finalize applications and agreements and determining what the proper insurance procedures should be for the initiative.
