It's all about the compromise.
Danville's skatepark site might be moved 2,000 feet west, from Jackson Park to Millennium Park, and be ready to roll about mid-July.
But how? Didn't the city need another $40,000 for a concrete pad? It is a feat that in this budget year is like getting blood from a turnip.
The park planning committee and Commissioner Jamey Gay put their heads together.
Here's their plan: Take the $20,000 to be spent on improvements to Jackson Park this year and use it on concrete. Ask the county to use its two-person crew to lay the slab, cutting down labor costs. Have a third party come in and put a smooth finish on the pad.
