The Adrian City Park Board met Thursday, April 3 at 6pm in Wimfield’s. It was stated that the east ball field needs a lot of work. Debris from the old City dump keeps coming to the surface of the playing area. Several local business men and contractors have volunteered to dig out the field and replace the dirt. The Board would be responsible for fuel for the project. Donita made a motion to allow private contractors including Jamie Kidwell to improve the east ball field at a maximum cost of $600 to the Board. Steve seconded and it carried 5 to 0.
