Skateboarders and bike riders at the Ridgway Skatepark will be riding smoother after Ridgway Borough Manager Martin Schuller gave the go-ahead for renovation during Monday night's council meeting.
According to a report from the Planning, Grants and Recreation Committee held on Tuesday, Aug. 7 at the municipal building, a contingent of 12 youth attended the meeting addressing their concerns for the condition of the skatepark.
Following the meeting, council member Richard Parrish and Gene Zelcs inspected the park to a make a recommendation to the borough for the renovation.
Parrish estimated a cost of $1,300 to $1,600 for the materials.
Labor will be provided by Parrish and the youth.
"The cheapest I can get by is $1,300, if I run the saw," Parrish said. "The kids said they will run the screw guns."
