The Columbia City Council, in a special called meeting Thursday, April 20, 2017, voted to approve the $15,000 contribution, matching Adair County Fiscal Court's $15,000 already approved, for new playground equipment at the Jim Blair Park and Recreation Center.
Mayor Curtis Hardwick presided at the meeting, with four members, Mark D. Harris, Pam Hoots, Craig Lasley, Linda Waggener, present, all voted to approve the $15,000 city contribution. Also present were City Attorney Marshall Loy and City Clerk Rhonda Bennett, Jim Blair Center Director Lisa Handy, Chief of Police Jason Cross, and members of the press
Progress is being made in the current budget to replace damaged playground equipment and according to Director Lisa Handy, families with children are using the park more and more. Today's vote concerned the next budget year. This money, if the grant is won, will not be appropriated until the 2017/2018 fiscal year.

Total amount of the grant sought for equipment is $89,768, a 50/50 matching grant, with $14,000 in kind, and cash amounts of $15,000 from the city and $15,000 from the county
