Part-time maintenance workers hired for Seymour parks
SEYMOUR — The town’s parks, which officials said are in need of some serious sprucing up, will finally be getting a mini-facelift.
A lack of maintenance and a manpower shortage have left the various parks, including French Memorial Park and Gary Park, in need of some TLC. So the Board of Selectmen voted this week to hire four, part-time seasonal employees to get the parks in shape for spring and summer.
