Parks get unforeseen ‘blessing’ In EDC’s $42,000 contribution

by Alexandria Randolph

Community projects got a boost Monday, Sept. 8, when the Marble Falls Economic Development Corporation contributed $42,000 in funding to the Parks and Recreation Department.

“I was approached by Christian Fletcher, executive director of the EDC. They had money left over in their budget for community leverage fund,” said Robert Moss, director of the Parks and Recreation Department, who added he was not initially aware of how much the EDC intended to give.

The projects Moss proposed the EDC Board of Directors assist in funding included lighting at Westside Park, a sidewalk at the Johnson Park parking lot and assisting in the construction of a second soccer field at the Greens.
