Meridian Park in the Town of Baileys Harbor will be growing a bit by mid-summer. The Door County Finance Committee approved $24,000 from the Unassigned Fund Balance to buy four-acres of property adjacent to the park. That money will allow the land to be purchased from the Estate of Betsy Light by the previously set deadline of April 1st. That money will be repaid as donations and grants come in. Door County Administrator Ken Pabich says adding that property to the 180-acre park will offer new benefits to the public.
Pabich says once the purchase is closed on July 1st the property and the waterfront will be immediately available for public use. The full County Board of Supervisors will vote on final approval when it meets next week.
