CPSD schools top ranks in test scoresThe $1.2 million generated by Clinton’s two per cent restaurant tax in the past year will be spent to improve the City’s parks, but the public still has a chance to provide some input on a list of priority projects which the Parks and Recreation Department has proposed.


A hearing is planned at the September 19 Board of Aldermen meeting.


“I had promised the City last year that we would have [the priorities] to them by the [first] October meeting, so we’re going to be one meeting early,” says Mayor Phil Fisher.


People attending the meeting will be able to comment on a list of proposed projects laid out in three phases, and those watching online can participate, as well.


“We’re setting it up so they can type in questions or comments on Facebook” [during the meeting], says Fisher. “We want them to take part.”


The Board plans to vote on moving forward with the park improvements at its October 3 meeting.
