Caryville works toward water park

CARYVILLE — The Caryville Town Council approved a pair of resolutions to seek grants to fund a water park and to bring the town’s water tower to state standards during their Sept. 10 meeting.

“The water park will be built across from Hodges Park and will be called Hodges Park number two,” said Town President Henry Chambers. “We’ll have a special meeting soon to let the grant writer explain the terms and conditions for these grants.”

The council approved of charging people $25 to park overnight at the Caryville Flea Market after Paron Beeco, supervisor of Caryville Flea Market, explained that all was ready for the weekend’s Flea Across Florida event, which is a flea market event on Sept. 13 and 14 stretching 272 miles from Live Oak to Pensacola held on State Road 90.

“We’ve got door prizes, pony rides and live entertainment,” said Beeco. “We’ve got some interested in parking because this is a pretty good half-way point on the route to and from Live Oak and Pensacola.”

Chambers reminded everyone to be thinking of ideas for fundraisers so that the town can replace the roof on the Caryville Civic Center.

“Also, if you could, when cats go through the garbage cans, please take the time to pick it up,” said Chambers.

Town Attorney Lyndia Spears gave an update in regards to a bill received in the amount of $16,510.
