All-Inclusive Playground at Black Tooth Park Approved by City Council


The City Council, by a vote of 6 to 1, approved the purchase and installation of an all-inclusive playground from Star Playgrounds in the amount of $1,036,384. City Engineer Thomas Morneau said the all-inclusive playground area is 18,608 square feet and is part of phase four of the Black Tooth Park Project.

A motion by Councilman Patceg to amend the amount that could be spent on the project from $1,036,384 to $500,000 failed by a vote of 2 to 5. The City Council also approved a one-year contract with the local firefighters union and third and final reading of an ordinance changing the start time for the regular business meetings from 7 pm to 5:30 pm. We’ll have more from the Council meeting in future stories.

    If any city council-person is for fiscal responsibility, we’re all for it. And by “We” I mean the vast majority of Sheridan residents.
    Does “all-inclusive” mean single, 50-yr-old men can play there, too? How about dog’s, cats and dolphins?
    Are illegal invaders, from enemy countries included?
    Just asking.
    “All-inclusive” seems a pretty nebulas term.
