Hope dawns for Burney Parks

The Burney Water Board held their monthly meeting on October 25 at the district office in Burney.

Jim Hamlin reported that there has been progress on the park situation in Burney. The community clean-up for Washburn Park on September 8 trimmed and cleaned up the grounds. The Soroptomist International of Burney-Fall River is raising money for the parks. In addition there will be a meeting at the Tri Counties Community Center on November 1 from 1:30-3:00 p.m. in the upstairs board meeting to discuss issues related to Washburn, Lions Civic, and Bailey parks. The meeting will be facilitated by Lisa Barry from Shasta County Health and Human Services. All stakeholders and members of the public are invited to attend.

Stephanie McQuade said that the solar panels at the pool were approved in September and have been operational for one month. The cost of the panels was $87,450 of which $50,000 was paid for by a grant from the McConnel Foundation. The Board approved transfer of $37,500 from Reserves Account #495 Water Swim Pool Admin to Tri Counties Bank for payment of the project.

In her Pool Manager’s Report, Ms. McQuade also said that the pool had received a grant for more that $7000 from the Burney Regional Community Fund for new shade structures to be installed in 2019.

Ms. McQuade also informed the Board that customers should be able to make payment by credit or debit card by December. Customers will also be able to pay bills online and will be offered the option for automatic electronic payment.
