Park clean up plans are announced in Randolph
RANDOLPH — A park cleanup is being planned as a joint effort between the City of Randolph and several area organizations.
The event is scheduled for April 4, at 10 a.m., with April 18 as a backup date in case of inclement weather. Volunteers are asked to park in the parking area between the football field and the softball field.
At this time, there are several groups signed up to help. Any organization is welcome and encouraged to join the volunteer cleanup.
Each organization will need to designate one or two people as leaders. These leaders will meet with a city employee or Dan Tunink the week before to discuss the project and make sure they have equipment needed to complete their task.
Leaders can call Dan, 402.360.1213, or call the city office, 402.337.0567, to sign up to help.
Some of the projects to be completed are:
• Cut down some branches in park
• Pick up debris and sticks throughout the park
• Fill in holes throughout the park
• Till up play areas with sand and level off
• Put pea gravel around several playground areas
• Clean up tennis court, remove weeds, get ready for new lines to be painted
• Clean up the basketball court, get ready for new lines to be painted
• Repair some sitting benches and paint
Some of these projects will require the use of a side by side utility vehicle, ATV, trailers to haul debris and sticks, and a smaller trailer to haul dirt for filling in holes. Please contact Dan Tunink or the city office if you are willing to donate the use of your equipment, with the owner as operator if possible.
To keep the park in excellent condition, each group is asked to consider continuing to care for their particular project throughout the year. After the major cleanup and repair, this should not be that time consuming for each group.
Snacks and water will be available for volunteers at this event. Each volunteer will need to sign a liability waiver before helping at the park.
Randolph has a great spacious park and with this joint effort between the city and community organizations, the park will be in top condition throughout the year.
