COLUMBIA CITY â Some of the cityâs departments are shifting sails a bit in preparation of spring, none more so than the cityâs Parks and Recreation Department.
Park Director Mark Green said with the weather change, Morsches Park has seen steady and consistent traffic recently, keeping the park busy. The department has also been working on playing fields in anticipation of holding softball practice soon.
Registration for softball will close with a registration session Saturday from 2 to 4 p.m. Boys Minor baseball evaluation will occur at 1 p.m. and Boys Major is at 2:30.
CHURUBUSCO â Since 1887 the Churubusco/Smith Township Fire Department has been âBustinâ Ours to Save Yours,â according to the departmentâs motto. Soon the department will be rewarded with a brand new facility.
The CSGFD is currently housed in the former town hall in an antiquated building. Later this spring, a new fire station is going to be built at 805 Johnny Krieger Drive. The address is currently a soccer field on the northwest side of the Churubusco Town Park.
