City breaks ground on spray project

The city of Cave Junction held a groundbreaking ceremony at Jubilee Park next to the playground during the Labor Day Festival Saturday, Sept. 2 for the future spray pad. Parks & Rec Commission Chair John Miles led the ceremony with Mayor Meadow Martell, Councilors Tina Casey Jones and Jean Ann Miles and Parks & Rec Commission volunteer Roger Brandt in attendance.
The commission had a display of the water features that will be at the spray pad that will include a frog, flowers, a seesaw and an “inclusive whirl.”
Four Way Community Foundation Executive Director Kate Dwyer came to celebrate as the city received a $10,000 grant from Four Way to help build the spraypad.
At the Aug. 14 city council meeting, Harvey’s Construction was approved to work on the spraypad after bidding against Paradise Contractors in Jacksonville.
According to Public Works Director Alex Ponder the spraypad construction is scheduled to begin this month.
