MASON CITY – North Iowa golfers may be able to enjoy Highland Park Golf C0urse on Thursday if weather cooperates, according to Interim Recreation Director Brian Pauly.
“We are still waiting to see,” Pauly said. “Some greens are a little soggy.”
In other developments, the Mason City Parks and Recreation Board met Tuesday night at City Hall and declared Tina Thompson and Buck Retterath “Coaches of the Year.”
The two coached 9 different sports and multiple teams on several occasions, Pauly said. The pair coached basketball, soccer, t-ball and softball among others.
The board also approved “The Dog” vendor Dave Lockwood for operation of his hot dog cart in city parks.
Pauly said he is still searching for a MacNider Campground manager. “Interviews were done last week, nine applied. There were a couple strong candidates. I’m in the process of references and background checks.”
It was also said at the meeting that “Friends of the Parker’s Woods” have raised about $3,200 from a Roller City fundraiser and some private donations. The group wants to spend the dollars they are raising on playground equipment at the park, located on the north side of 1st Street NW from the West Park tennis courts.
Pauly said that the Recreation Department offices ares still waiting to move from their current home in Mohawk Square over to their new home in the former Washington School. Once construction is complete at the new location, they will begin the moving process.
