TROY — UPDATE @ 6:30 p.m. (July 9):
The Park and Recreation boards and a city council committee all voted unanimously to place a property tax proposal on the November ballot to raise $4 million for improvements to Paul G. Duke Park.
The proposed property tax would cost the owner of a $100,000 home around $40 a year.
Proposed improvements include five more baseball/softball fields, a T-ball field, three additional soccer fields, a splash pad, a miniature golf course, new concession/storage area, park maintenance building and another park entrance.
The $4 million would be joined by $8 million from the city to finance the $12 million project.
A proposed $12 million, 10-year property tax to support part of the cost of added development at Paul G. Duke Park will be outlined next week.
On Monday, there will be a joint meeting of Troy’s Park and Recreation boards and a city council committee.
The money would include more baseball, softball and soccer fields, a splash pad, and a miniature golf course.
The tax would pay one-third of the $12 million estimated cost.
