Leaders in one city are feuding and it's all over where to build a new skate park.
City council members in St. Albans just can't seem to agree and neither side is backing down after more than two years of debate.
The group working on the project wants to build the facility in Ordnance Park. Some members of the parks and recreation committee want to build it at City Park. Both sides cite safety as their main reason for opposing the other location.
Parks and Recreation committee Chair Loretta Griffiths said the train tracks by Ordnance Park would be dangerous. "That's the main reason is the safety, plus up here we have parking galore. This would be an ideal place for the children," said Griffiths.
Councilman Stephen Donelson said he's worried about kids walking up the narrow road leading to city park. "Ordnance Park has several ways to get into it. It is flat. They also have availability, if and when they are done skating, they want to go eat or drink, there are stores gas stations and restaurants they could go to. Up here there is nothing," said Donelson.
The issue had tempers flaring at Wednesday's Parks and Recreation Committee meeting. The committee agreed to consider the skate park group's latest proposal.
