VERONA, Miss. (WTVA) - The City of Verona is making improvements to the Verona City Park after receiving a federal grant.
Verona received a U.S Forestry Grant for park improvement two summers ago. However, Mayor Bobby Williams said it took the city a while to begin improvements.
Williams said the grant is for approximately $150,000.
Workers have already added new lighting to the park, built two new pavilions, and resurfaced the basketball and tennis courts. They also resurfaced the walking track.
Williams said next on the improvement list is to add security cameras and renovate two buildings on park grounds that people could rent out.
