A ceremonial groundbreaking held Saturday morning, Oct. 6 at Waters Edge Park marked the start of the first construction project financed with $21.7 million in general obligation bonds approved in November 2017 by Murphy voters.
Participating in the groundbreaking were Mayor Scott Bradley, City Council members and officials from contractor Affordable Concrete.
“We are here this morning to celebrate the Waters Edge park improvements,” Castro said in welcoming officials and guests to the ceremony.
The project, Waters Edge Drainage Culvert Improvements, eliminates ditches that cross the park by filling them in draining pipes covered with soil to create level, more useable ground. Cost of the culvert improvements is $285,433.
