Park weighs options to pay for overdue updates, additions
By James Vaughn
Johnson County Park has some big-ticket items on its wish list and has for many years, but the problem has been finding a way to pay for them.
Now, park officials are meeting with private companies to explore a new way they might be able to appeal to the county, secure more funding and get some of those wish-list projects underway.
Dan Lawson, senior business development manager ar Meyer Najem, is from the south side and has a vested interest in this area, he said.
“Over the last four years, parks and rec is something that we’ve become very passionate about as a company. As a team, we can bring construction, design and financing expertise for all of these projects,” Lawson told the commissioners.
