CORINTH — The city’s Board of Mayor and Aldermen has scrapped a proposal to expand membership on the park commission.
The Daily Corinthian reports a proposal had been made to expand it from five to seven members.
But Alderman Ben Albarracin says the county Board of Supervisors does not support the change, so the proposal has been dropped.
Proposed expansion of parks had been a driving reason for the proposal to put more people on the parks commission, which consists of members appointed by the city and county boards.
