Clifton city hears plans for splash pad

Clifton resident Cody Ralphs approached the Clifton City Council last week to propose plans for a splash pad in the city park. In addition to the plans, he donated $200 to the city raised from the Pioneer Day baseball tournament, to begin a fund for the project.

Although only in a planning stage, councilman Duke Mumford said this was a good idea, and he thinks the city should pursue it. The splash pad would be a 20×10 foot cement pad, with six nozzles that would spray the water, circulating it on a timer. Cost estimates have not been completed, but Ralphs said he thought it would be close to $10,000.

After a budget hearing, which the city approved, Mayor John Gailey noted the city parks and recreation fund could not handle the total amount and that there would be a need for community involvement in raising the money. Once completed, the splash pad would be city maintained.
