BOYNE CITY: Second Veterans Park playground cleanup day scheduled

A second cleanup day has been scheduled to remove the woodchips, some containing arsenic which seeped from the treated lumber of the playground structure, from the Veterans Park playground in Boyne City.

According to Boyne City officials, last Saturday’s work bee resulted in nearly half the woodchips being removed.

Officials are asking for more volunteers this coming weekend to help finish the job.

The woodchips will be loaded into dumpsters and taken to a disposal facility.

Long pants, long sleeves and closed-toed shoes are required; gloves will be provided.

No children under the age of 12 years old.

Volunteers are encouraged to bring wheelbarrows, rakes, pitchforks, shovels and other helpful hand tools to assist with the cleanup.

The effort is scheduled for 9 a.m. until finished on Saturday Oct. 24, at the Boyne City community playground in Veterans Park.

For additional information or questions, contact Boyne City Hall at (231) 582-6597.
