Park Mowing Update

Effective July 24, the neighborhood parks will be mowed every other week. The Park District contracts mowing services for the majority of the park properties. The reason for the change is an effort to save money. The Park District will monitor active athletic space and will adjust mowing when possible. The district has limited financial resources. With escalating costs, we are working to reduce spending when possible. The referendum that was brought before voters in 2022 did not pass. Therefore, it is necessary to evaluate ways to reduce the operating budget.
