Council OKs Money For Parks

Springfield's city council is  approving a one-point-six-million-dollar bond to fund improvements to  Riverfront Park.  

Council members unanimously supported the measure at a  special meeting on Monday.  It allows for three-million-dollars to be  spent on improvements to the downtown park on the east bank of the  Connecticut River.  

The passing of the bond was delayed after council  members expressed concern last week about the condition of Springfield's  other parks.  

City officials hope to have the improvements finished by  next September, when the new MGM casino opens.
