Yeah, it looks nice but what don't we see and know? How much overtime was spent for construction employees to get it done in an unrealistic time frame just so visk could have a notch in his belt before election? Hmm,that's the only one that he has in four years. Yeah, that's a good use of taxpayers dollars, huh?
And how about those new ballfields??? Has Visk actually walked on them? They are so unsafe and unplayable!!! Kids can get hurt and should NOT be used until fixed. Holes all over, sinking soft spots, huge gaps in the sod lines. Very unsafe!!! He's running out of time to make good on his promise to the Little League, that's for sure! When is opening day???? Better turn on the power,etc back at Smith Park!!!

The new ballfields are the biggest joke out there. While they look nice from a distance...try just walking on the west field. It's terrible.The there are ridges between the sod holes, soft spots all over the place, where even walking on it can turn your ankles..can't imagine running on it. Rocks all over, sticks sticking out of the ground....Well, Visk, now that you rushed to get this done half assed just for your policial open house...FIX THE things that were thrown together and get things done right for a change!
