WAUSAU - The Town of Wausau is on track to have a splash pad constructed at the Possum Palace.
Council members agreed when the board met in regular session Thursday that work will begin on the project shortly after the town's Possum Festival and Fun Day, which will be held Saturday, August 5.
The splash pad will be mostly funded by a $50,000 grant received last year from the Florida Recreation Development Assistant Program (FRDAP).
The Town has looked to splash pads at neighboring communities, such as the one located in Bonifay's Middlebrooks Park, as a template for Wausau's design.
In other business, council members tasked Town Attorney Jeff Goodman with drafting an interlocal agreement between Wausau and Washington County that would allow the county to handle the town's code enforcement.
Council members also accepted a bid from J.D. Owens, Inc. to replace the carpet at Town Hall. The $5,868.50 cost will be paid from the general fund.
The Wausau Fire Department is slated to lend a hand at George M. Rogers Park, with volunteers burning and disposing of limbs that have piled up at the park.
Wausau Town Council will meet again in regular session at 6 p.m. on August 10.
