Oak Harbor seeks funding for parks system  

The Village of Oak Harbor will approach voters this November to ask the citizens for monies to fund the operations, maintenance and capital improvements to their parks system. Issue 7 will be seeking a 3-mill levy for five years. The parks of the village currently include Veterans Memorial Park, Flat Iron Park and Kraemer Park. Combined they cover over 25 acres and include activities for little league baseball, football, tennis, basketball, sand volleyball, skateboarding, sledding and batting cages. They also provide amenities for family gatherings, BBQ grills and handicapped accessible restrooms. Veterans Memorial and Flat Iron Park offer tributes to the men and women who fought for our country and Kraemer Park offers educational opportunities for local school children on the history of our area via the Log Cabin Committee and its programs.
