Maricopa Parks Manager Mike Riggs has about 40 improvement projects in city parks that are necessary or have been requested but have not reached the top of the priority pile yet for his busy staff. He supplies local Boy Scouts leaders with the list for prospective Eagle Scouts to tackle.
Saturday, 17-year-old Jeremy Sellaro brought his helpers to Copper Sky Regional Park’s horseshoe pit for the labor part of his leadership service project. The group laid concrete slabs linking the pit border to the light fixture.
Riggs said benches had been requested at the pits, and the slabs will allow for the future placement of seating. He also said the project will save his staff hours of work each year when mowing around the pit.
