Milton declares July Parks and Rec month.

By Jonathan Copsey / Appen Newspapers

MILTON, Ga. - At its July 6 meeting, the Milton City Council honored the Parks and Recreation Advisory Board by proclaiming July "Parks and Recreation Month."

Members from the board accepted the proclamation with Parks and Recreation staff.

"Parks and recreation are vitally important to establishing and maintaining the quality of life in our communities, ensuring the health of all citizens and contributing to the economic and environmental well-being of a community and region," read Mayor Joe Lockwood from a proclamation.

Lockwood called the newly renovated Bethwell Community Center on Hopewell Road the "symbol of Milton's parks and recreation."

Is it possible to have a recreational facility that can accommodate the youth of this century? That building is such a disgrace. It would have made more sense to put up a couple of tents.

Who wrote the "proclamation" for Joe to read? - laughable. Than stated "symbol of Milton's parks and recreation." Good grief.
