SDN Staff Reports
As the Starkville Parks and Recreation Department expands, a new bridge is on the way.
The Oktibbeha County Board of Supervisors agreed Tuesday to help the City of Starkville construct a bridge adjacent to Lynn Lane and the Sportsplex.
District 2 Supervisor Orlando Trainer, now vice president of the board, said the addition would aid the Parks and Recreation Department as its staff plans to add more parking.
â€śItâ€™s going to help with the future growth plans of the park,â€ť Trainer said.
â€śPeople will be able to access that bridge without having to go all the way around the road.â€ť
The total cost of material is $12,000.
The Board of Supervisors also reelected District 3 Supervisor Marvell Howard as its president during its meeting Tuesday.
