ESTO – Residents made their voices heard concerning their wishes about what they would like to see done at each park should the town receive Florida Recreational Development Assistance Program (FRDAP) grants in the next fiscal year.

At the top of the list for E.W. Carswell Park is a splash pad for area children to enjoy during the summer heat as well as satellite dishes to help provide shade.

The town’s main park John Clark Park holds more possibilities of what they would like to see done.

Residents would like to have a walking trail be the first thing go in at the park, followed by refurbishing the fishing pier at the pond.

Esto Town Council approved the application for the grant process when they met in regular session June 5.

Council approved the hiring of Holloway Credit Solutions to handle collections of water bills left by residents who move and leave behind outstanding bills that the town cannot afford to absorb.

“We simply cannot afford to eat the thousands of dollars in bills some leave behind each year,” said Town Clerk Yvonee Hagans. “This is the best solution.”

Esto is currently taking part in the Feed Florida program by serving breakfast from 8 a.m. – 10 a.m. , Monday through Friday, at Town Hall. The program is for area children to enjoy a healthy, nutritious breakfast.

Esto Town Council will meet again in regular session at 6 p.m. on June 19.
