The Flinty Boardwalk Committee held a meeting Tuesday night to discuss the need for more committee members and volunteers. Chair Dave Price says the Boardwalk maintenance depends on volunteers and they do have some people doing repairs and maintenance and he is impressed with how users pick up garbage but there are ongoing jobs. He explains one of the things includes attending to their wooden infrastructure, the stairs and the Boardwalk itself and they’re planning to do some staining at the observation deck at North Avenue Park and so they’ll be looking for volunteers to help out with that. He adds the other issue is there’s a section of the Boardwalk alongside Stittco that is sloping to one side and the City is going to provide fill to level that section but they will need some bodies to help them level that with their rakes and hoes and so on.
Seven people who attended the meeting along with two committee members showed interest in helping out. If you can spend some time call Dave at 204-687-8653. You can also support the Boardwalk by purchasing name boards at City Hall for 100 dollars and these will be installed in September.
