Veterans Memorial Park is scheduled to be closed Wednesday and Thursday for resealing roadways and the lake pavilion parking lot.

According to City Engineer Jonathan Zimmermann, when the areas were paved, there was some surface cracking.

“Our concern was that water would penetrate the cracks and cause issues over the winter,” he said.

The contractor agreed to reseal before winter.

There are a handful of smaller things that still need to be completed at the park, Sullivan said.

Still on the to-do list is the installation of several barbecue pits and benches, two 8-foot picnic table shelters, a fence at the Kiwanis playground and a possible shade structure at that playground.

This year, the budget also calls for a new playground to be installed.
