Splash Park Funding Suspended

Governor Rauner suspended funding for all park district construction projects today. Since both the Splash Park in Carbondale and The Hub project in Marion had that funding figured into their budgets, both suspended work today until they get some idea regarding what is going on. It appears that, much like the state appointments of last month, Gov. Rauner stopped funding everything and will then go though the list of grants and decide on a case by case basis as to what funds will get restored for what projects.

Rather raises hob with the Splash Park, since the project organizers had planned on a May opening, just in time for summer.
