Parks do it right; schools wrong

As a member of Courts Plus, I am excited about the planned addition and renovations to the fitness center. The facility has become slightly dated, so the upgrades to the facility will be a welcome sight.

I would like to thank Fargo Park District Executive Director Roger Gress, Courts Plus General Manager Kevin Boe, along with his staff and Fargo Park Board members for their leadership on this project.

Isn’t it great that the Park District is spending approximately $4 million of Fargo taxpayers’ dollars on a facility located in the city?

Obviously, Fargo School Board members could learn some things from the Park District. Most Fargo taxpayers are not happy about the Bluestem debacle and its $4.8 million price tag for a facility located in Moorhead.
