Hamlin Township (Mason County, Michigan) Supervisor, Nancy Vandervest reports that the board will review a grant application for new playground equipment.
A company called Game Time, of Alabama, offers the grants in cooperation with the Trust for Public Land. The township would need to provide 50% of the money for the equipment. The goal is to replace older metal-frame swings and slides with newer equipment.
The exact units to be replaced has not been determined, but Wilson Hill and South Bayou Parks are being discussed. Vandervest says that their choices range from $6000 to $100,000 for play structures, giving them lots of options.
Volunteers would probably be called upon to help assemble the structures.
New grills for the parks is also being discussed.
