New and Improved Fish Cleaning Station
Antioch’s public fishing pier received much needed rebuild of the existing fish cleaning station and the Marina received a new fish cleaning station thanks to Dylan Wright, Eagle Scout candidate and Mayor Sean Wright’s son. Dylan organized other scouts and scout leaders to contribute to the project bringing an impressive 19 volunteers representing Troops 493 and 394.
Dylan’s project included:
- new stainless steel fish cleaning station on the berth dock
- automatic water shut-off valve
- catch basket for environmental purposes.
Dylan is not done yet! He plans to remove the old wood on the existing station and replace it with new Trex siding and add new cutting surfaces to each counter top. Dylan’s two brothers helped with the project. His older brother Tyler earned his Eagle rank in 2016. His younger brother Colby is hoping to start his Eagle project next year. Public Works wants to send a huge ‘THANK YOU’ to Dylan and the Scouts as the fish cleaning stations are a much needed upgrade and the families who use these facilities are going to enjoy your contribution to our community for
City Park Maintenance
Staff installed two new swings at City Park. Maintenance work is not always pleasant but this project had huge rewards for Public Works staff as the children were excited to try them out for us. Seeing those happy faces was the best part of this project!
Staff installed a new bridge on the play structure and back filled the sand underneath the bridge. Kids, let the playing begin!!! If you are looking for a nice park to take the kids during the Thanksgiving break check out the all abilities play structures that are publicly accessible outside of the Antioch Water Park facility located at 4701 Lone Tree Way (across from Deer Valley High School).
