MARENGO – The Marengo Park District will close its preschool and after-school programs, The Little Nut Hut.

“A lot of child care has been struggling,” said Denise Anderson, director of the Marengo Park District.“Financially, we just can’t keep up.”

The programs, which served children from 6 weeks to 12 years old, will be suspended starting in the beginning of February.

Budget cuts, along with decreases in sign-ups, mean that the park district will not have sufficient funds to continue operating the programs.

“Numbers are way down,” Anderson said.“We hated to do it but thought we had to.”

Anyone surprised by this? I am not. Rumor has it that they may also be cutting the summer camp and possibly the pool this year. Bye Bye park. Think Anderson will still have a job? Unfortunately, yes, I think she will.

Sure; Anderson will still have a job. I live in Marengo. We pay taxes to the park. That money alone will pay for Anderson's salary. She'll get paid to do nothing because the park has nothing to offer now. Not that any of us wanted to use the park anyway - what with late fees and the fact that she wouldn't pro-rate if we signed up after a program had a begun.
