Howard: volunteers a big key in development of new park

Once again a lot of people gathered in Hyrum over the Independence Day holiday weekend and Hyrum Mayor Dean Howard says this year’s celebration was one of the best he can remember.On KVNU’s Crosstalk show last Thursday, Howard said Hyrum is in good financial shape considering the tight economy. There have been no layoffs or tax increases this year. The mayor says one reason is there are a lot of volunteers and right now they are working hard on a new city park on the west side of town.”We’re going to have the first phase,” Howard explained, “we’ll have a pavilion. We’ll have restrooms. We’ll have a nice pond there. We’ll have a splash pad where the kids can run through the water that pops up.”We’ll have a nice hill that they’ll be able to use in the winter for the small kids for sledding. The big kids, won’t be a thrill for them, but for the little kids that live close it’ll be a nice sledding hill.”Mayor Howard says anyone willing to volunteer with this or other projects should contact Hyrum City Hall.
