Esto told why town was denied grant

Council member Darlene Madden told Dingman that the town was recently able to make contact with their legislative representatives Representative Marti Coley and Senator Don Gaetz when they came to visit Holmes County.

Dingman praised them on knowing their representatives and to continue an open line of communication with them.

“They are such down-to-earth people,” said Madden. “They seemed to know us and remembered all of our issues and all of our activities. They really seem to care about us.”

Madden also informed the council that there was a concerned parent about the playground equipment and how close it was to the pond.

The council discussed the possibility of looking into acquiring funds to build fence around the play equipment to discourage children playing the park from going to the pond unattended.

“We’ve also got to remove the motorcycle from the playground,” said Town Council President Danny Powell. “The handle broke off and it doesn’t look like we’ll be able to fix it. We’ll also inspect the rest of the playground equipment to make sure they’re still safe too.”

Madden informed the council that if they go with Ultimate Production for sound equipment for $800 the Holmes County Health Department could give them a $600 grant, or $600 off for designating several areas as “smoke-free zones.”
