Temporary patio space
Council passed the motion for the operations department to set up a temporary patio space at Legion Memorial Park and to advertise the space and listing local establishments that provide takeout food once public health restrictions are eased and can permit patio dining.
“I’ll go with (the option) to approve it, kind of like it in the park myself, and really like the forward thinking,” said Coun. Chris Czember.
