Port Clements council members agreed Tuesday (April 22) to plant $2,000 in this year’s budget for town beautification, after hearing from a longtime volunteer.
Wendy Quinn told council members she has been working for the past several years on the gardens in front of the fire hall, and is willing to continue. Other volunteers like Pat Fricker are willing to keep up the flower beds in front of the “Welcome to Port Clements” sign, the gardens by the community hall, and the planters along Bayview Drive, Ms Quinn said.
Council agreed to put $2,000 in this year’s budget for bulbs and other supplies, the same as last year.
Ms Quinn also warned council members that the Sunset Park and trail, which just opened last year, needs quite a bit of maintenance work which is beyond the scope of the gardening volunteers. Parts of the path are falling away and the bridges are slippery, she said.
