Amendment Aimed at Increasing Funding for Park Repairs Voted Down By Evansville City Council

A measure aimed at shifting money from the future Roberts Park project toward repairs to other Evansville city parks was voted down Monday night.

The Evansville City Council voted against an amendment to reallocate funding that would go towards the current upkeep and repairs needed at current parks.

Councilwoman Missy Mosby presented the amendment back in September after more vandalism was reported within several area parks.

The goal was to move one million dollars from the budget for the future Roberts Park, and instead put it towards existing park maintenance.

The measure was voted down Monday night in a 6 to 3 vote.

There is currently $300,000 allowed in the budget for repairs to the 67 current parks in use, two boat ramps, and the greenway.
