I am wondering why the city won't keep the park nicer. New equipment is needed, there are no working drinking fountains, the bathrooms are horrible and there is trash everywhere. If the city isn't going to keep it up doesn't Sesser have some civic organization or school group that could adopt it? When I visit I take my grandson to another town to play at the park.

The bathrooms are in good shape except when vandals mess things up, but you can thank the street Supt for the horrible shape it is in with the trash and such. He's the one in charge and he couldn't care less about it( yes, he has actually laughed and said so to a few people, I am one of them who has overheard him at his daily meetings at the opera house cafe where he has wasted thousands of hours of the city time over the years. The only time you can get anything done is when the mayor gets on to him and he has to do something, like for homecomming and special events, or election time and then its just mostly the other workers that do the job. He's to busy running his own trucking and backhoe business on city time. As long as he is protected, you won't get much of anything done from him. It's a long standing joke in town about him and his private (but run on the city time) business.

Maybe its time for Sesser to get a new mayor and some different city counsil members so something can change.If people are running their personal business on city time it would be the mayor and counsil members jobs to put a stop to it!
Last weekend I didn't have much time in town so I walked with my grandson to the city park. There were big drainage tubes on the west side of the park. There was a group of "tweens" inside the tubes..if no one is watching, things that shouldn't , will be happening in those tubes!
They make it a point to make everyone leave the park at 8pm but no one checks during the day??
As I had said before I will drive to another park next time I am in Sesser.
