Commissioner calls for park millage support

July 21, 2010 - Dear Editor,

As voters consider our millage request Aug. 3, I'd like to remind them of some the benefits and responsibilities of Springfield Township Parks and Recreation.

These include partnering with the Natural Resource Conservation Service and DNR for prescribed burns to keep our park lands healthy; mowing, maintaining and striping sports fields; and repairing and maintaining facilities and equipment.

Often costs are not considered by those enjoying park facilities, and most see upkeep as a given. However, costs continue to rise and dollars available to provide these vital services continue to shrink.

Without support, we could potentially be faced with severely reducing or eliminating these crucial services. That is why now more than ever we need assistance from our residents so we can continue to provide them with the high standard of service, park facilities and programming they have come to enjoy.

Diane Baker, commissioner
