Talk of merging the Carbondale Park District with the City of Carbondale has been going on for several years. Kathy Renfro, the Park District's Executive Director says she recently received a proposal from City Officials, and says she is hopeful meaningful dialogue can resume.
"And so now that we are identifying common goals, and have gotten the conversation around to, what I believe was always at the root of it. What is in the best interests of the taxpayer."
Renfro says the Park District Board will officially respond to the City's latest proposal on April 12 - and plans to get input from the community in an open Zoom meeting, starting at 5:30PM that same day. To sign up to watch the meeting, visit: https://zoom.us/j/9031181650
