Issues
    I feel that the biggest issues we face as members of the Beardstown Park Board are maintaining a balanced budget while keeping the parks beautiful and well maintained.
    Also, spending tax dollars in the best way possible to provide the children and adults of our community with interesting and current programs at a cost affordable to everyone.
Goals
    Providing our community with a new public pool.
