POINT PLEASANT —Improvements are continuing at Krodel Park with the upcoming installation of LED lighting around the newly revamped and repaved walking trail.
Mayor Brian Billings announced the upgrades this week, saying the remaining money from the Robert & Louise Claflin Foundation grant of the Krodel Walking Trail was used to purchase the new LED lighting.
”This new lighting will not only help to provide safety and visibility but will be a cost savings per month in electric at the park,” Billings said. “The Claflin Foundation has been a major force in the city’s upgrading plan of Krodel Park.”
As previously reported, the Claflin Foundation was honored at a recent city council meeting and a proclamation was given and presented to chairman Steve Littlepage and committee member Gary Fields, by Billings and attending city council members.
City Clerk Amber Tatterson reported it’s hoped water and electric will be in use at the recently installed gazebo as soon as possible. The gazebo project was also funded by the Claflin Foundation.
City officials hope to continue working with the foundation to bring more upgrades to Krodel, stated Billings.
