In a vote on Thursday, September 15, citizens of Carthage approved the surcharge on prepared food and motel rooms to fund improvements to Lincoln and McMillan parks. The measure passed with 88% approval. Canizaro Cawthon Davis worked with the city to develop the master plan for the parks, including improving sports fields and adding amenities such as a splash pad for youngsters. We’d like to congratulate Mayor Wallace and the citizens of Carthage for their success.
