City of Grantville votes in favor of splash park

by Rebecca Leftwich

The Grantville City Council has voted to build its citizens a splash park.

Following lengthy discussion about funding for the proposed splash park and other recreation Monday night, the council unanimously voted to award the project to low bidder Tom Moore Builder Inc.

The city agreed to spend $151,995 on the 3,200-square-foot park, which will be built on the site of Grantville's former public swimming pool at Post Street Park.

Council member Rochelle Jabaley first suggested building a splash park last spring, but the project was tabled when council members could not agree on the park's specifics before cool weather set in.

More coverage of the splash park decision will be in Wednesday's print and digital editions of The Newnan Times-Herald.
