Edmonson County Parks and Recreation News
By Greg Hudson
The Parks and Recreation department will host a public meeting on February 9th, 2016 at the Community Center in Brownsville at 6:30pm. This meeting will be held to inform the public of the programs and events that the parks and recreation department is considering for the upcoming year.
A needs assessment survey will be handed out in order to give each member of the community an opportunity to help the parks and recreation department decide which programs and events are most beneficial to the health and social well being of the community. We want to know what you would like to see from our department. Please attend this meeting to help us provide the best possible recreation and leisure activities for your enjoyment.
