Saying the Gettysburg Recreational Authority was “sitting pretty good going into 2022” with a cash reserve of $123,608, Executive Director Erin Peddigree asked the board to approve a 2022 budget of about $234,000.
The budget, substantially similar to the 2021 budget, was unanimously approved by the board.
Peddigree said the park had made $700 during the holiday craft fair and that 14 vendors had attended. Peddigree said she hoped the event would be even bigger this year.
GARA also received $5,874 from this year’s Giving Spree.
The park will remove about 14 dead trees, mostly ash trees, near the dog park. “They need to come down,” said Peddigree.
Peddigree said the Biser trail is plowed and people are using it. “I give you a lot of credit for getting it plowed,” said board member Steve Niebler.
The Gettysburg and Adams County Chamber will hold its January Membership Mixer from 4:00 – 6:00 p.m. on Jan. 20 in the Charlie Sterner Building at the rec park.
