Council to Consider Pringles Park Improvements

When members of the Jackson City Council meet next month, they should be voting on improvements to Pringles Park. The City Council is set to consider a $200,000 appropriation to go towards replacing the existing video board, adding a playground to the right field berm area, and make improvements to the suite level. About half of the cost of the new $300,000 video board will come from insurance monies, since the old board has suffered a number of lighting strikes. The new video system will have a LED display, complete with a replay system. The City of Jackson has not paid for any major improvements to the city owned park since it opened in 1998. The Jackson Generals, an affiliate of the Seattle Mariners, open their 2012 season at Pringles Park on April 5, against the Birmingham Barons.
