SNOW HILL, N.C. (WNCT) – We’re following up on an On Your Side story we brought you just a couple weeks ago. We told you about the Greene County Parks and Recreation basketball program at risk of shutting down due to condition of the gym. After more than five long years of searching, they finally have a new place to call home.
They tell WNCT thanks to our story, county leaders stepped up their efforts and found a solution to keep the league alive.
9 On Your Side told you weeks ago about the conditions plaguing the Parks and Rec gym. We saw mold, termites, water damage, and broken windows.
Parks and Rec Director Mike Anderson brought the issues before the Board of Commissioners, who promised him a game plan by September. But with the help of the county manager, they kicked into high gear after our story aired.
“All I’ve ever cared about is our kids being safe. First and foremost, the kids are the most important things to me,” Anderson said.
They’re still nailing down specifics, so they can’t release the new location just yet. The take away here is that Greene County Parks and Rec basketball will go on.
Anderson says this is a temporary fix. They’re still looking for a long term solution. We’ll keep you updated on their progress.
