[ARCHIVED] City receives grant from KDHE

Picnic table at Veterans Park

Our newest parks provide a great view from great seats, thanks in part to our friends at KDHE. 

The City of Spring Hill was awarded a 50/50 matching grant from the Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE)  Waste Tire Program. The City received $4,103 for 10 benches and four picnic tables and $5,825.30 for mulch, all of which were installed at the brand new Veterans Park and Melvin Murry Dog Park. The tables, benches and mulch are all made from waste tire material from the program, the City’s Public Works department said. 

“This is a program we hope to continue to participate in to update and add to new and existing park areas.” 

Cities, counties and school districts in Kansas are eligible to apply each year for the Waste Tire Program. In 2020, KDHE awarded about $468,000 in funding to more than 40 organizations. 

The benches and tables were installed at both parks last month. The City plans to add shade structures over a couple of the picnic tables at Veterans Park for families to catch a break from the sun.
