City Superintendent John Bruns reported that he and Zach White are averaging eight to 10 meters per day and are well over half done with the switch over.
He also noted that at some point someone in a golf cart drove up on the splash pad, leaving mud all over it. He added that fencing should be up before the event on Saturday, July 9.
