Finnin Park Reopens
As many residents are aware, Finnin Park has been partially closed for several months. Vandalism occurred at the park last year where beer bottles were broken throughout the brown rubber mulch around the equipment. In an abundance of caution and liability this mulch was removed to ensure that no park patrons would be cut by the glass. While this was happening the vandals were caught and prosecuted for the vandalism. The damage to the park totaled over $12,000 due to the cost of rubber mulch being so expensive. As the Township awaited the judicial system to run its course for restitution the park was partially closed. Part of the case has been settled however part has not. Last month the Board of Supervisors directed the staff to move forward to replace the mulch even though we have not received restitution to date. We are happy to report that the new mulch arrived yesterday and Finnin park has been fully reopened.
