Letter: Park districts still working together

To the Editor:

Over the past couple of months the DeKalb and Sycamore Park Districts have been evaluating the possibilities of pursuing joint ventures. It is the goal of both organizations to meet the needs of their residents in the most cost-effective manner possible. This could mean offering joint programs, sharing industry expertise, or collaborating on facilities and/or facility usage.

Most recently the two boards evaluated the possibility of some type of joint pool effort. Each board has put together a list of considerations for such an effort. In comparing these lists there was incompatibility with regard to possible locations for such a pool facility. Based on this a consensus was reached not to pursue a joint pool effort at this point in time.

Both boards will continue to entertain the possibility of other collaborations going forward. As opportunities present themselves, they will be evaluated with the best interests of our residents at the forefront of our thoughts and discussions.

Phil Young, President

DeKalb Park District Board of Commissioners
