DIXON – The Park District is expected to close out its fiscal year about $8,000 to $10,000 in the black, Executive Director Deb Carey said.

The Park District met Wednesday for the first time in 2 months, after it did not have enough for a quorum in February.

Carey said the Park District saved money in electricity bills by signing a contract with a supplier.

Looking to next year’s budget, the board decided to spend about $50,000 more than expected revenue. The district has savings of about $790,000.

Some projects added to the budget include raising the fence at Reynolds Field to prevent home run balls from going into adjacent properties, which will cost about $11,500, and buying a garbage compactor for $15,000 so employees do not have to empty garbage bins manually.
