County waiting for state money

The ball fields and playgrounds at Tick Neck Park may be complete, but the county still is waiting for the state to ante up its share of the $1.5 million construction cost.

HTC The county built the 24-acre park next to Northeast High School expecting a $568,700 grant from the state Department of Natural Resources.

But Program Open Space money has been scarce as lawmakers cut its funds in recent years to balance the state budget.

Delegate Charles W. "Stokes" Kolodziejski, a Carvel Beach Democrat, announced last week that the DNR has allocated the money. But the grant still hinges on approval by the three members of the state Board of Public Works.

The park, which opened in the spring, includes a bike path, playground and parking lot.

Mr. Kolodziejski, former County Councilman Edward C. "Buddy" Ahern and other Pasadena political leaders lobbied for the park for several years.
