 • Webster City Parks and Rec,Hamilton County Conservation look at issues.

 Issues facing the Hamilton County Conservation Board and the Webster City Parks and Recreation Commission were discussed at a joint meeting held Thursday afternoon. Both departments looked at working together on improvement to park areas and on promotion. Another issue discussed was on the Boone River Recreational Trail. Both the parks and recreation commission and the conservation department will look at the application of grant money to replace the identification signs along the trail that have been faded due to weather. There will also work that will need to be done in the future on cracks that have been noticed along the trail.It's likely that the fixing of the cracks will take place next year.

The Briggs Woods Golf Course opened for the season on March 17. Russ Appel said the numbers have been down since opening day due to the cold weather but it should pickup in the next few weeks with warmer weather.  The board also met with Jessica Johnson of the Prairie Rivers R C and D on marketing Hamilton County's parks and conservation areas. The department will look at using social media for their promotions beginning late this spring.
