Buie Park problems aired

Complaints heard at city meeting

By Lou Elliott Jones, Editor

Two members of the city’s planning board and a former mayor attended the Chiefland City Commission meeting last Tuesday evening, but a rezoning on the agenda was not their reason for speaking.

It was their concern about Buie Park on the city’s south side.

John Henry Donaldson, still recovering from an operation on his knee, was the spokesman for the small group, “We got a couple of problems at the park.”

He said when the May Day reunion was held recently with several hundred people in attendance, the park’s bathrooms were shut down.

“Why was the bathroom closed and what do we need to do to fix it,” he asked.

City Manager Grady Hartzog said the park is not on the city’s sewer system and the septic tank and drain field had problems with tree roots intruding. He said some pine trees that caused the problem have been cut down and the drain field for the park will be rebuilt.
