Middlesex to hold public meeting
Middlesex Mayor LuHarvey Lewis is hosting a public meeting on Tuesday to give citizens a chance to ask questions about the town’s parks.

Lewis said the meeting is being held at the request of concerned citizens.

Brandie and Eric Holt and Robert Johnson have been attending Town of Middlesex Board meetings for several months with concerns about the town’s parks. Questions have been brought before commissioners on why the current parks haven’t been maintained. Johnson has said the park equipment at the Hanes Street Park was a liability issue and was not properly maintained.

Questions have also been brought up about the Bailey-Middlesex Park, which is currently under construction.

At the board’s regular meeting on March 11, Mayor Lewis addressed Holt and Johnson and said he would meet with the two at anytime.

The next day, Lewis said Johnson contacted him and requested a meeting by email. However, Lewis added that Johnson wanted a public meeting instead of a meeting between just him and Johnson and Holt.

“We offered to sit down with those three individuals and address their concerns about anything,” Lewis said. “But they wanted to have a public meeting addressing questions about the park.”

“I have no problem doing it,” Lewis added.

Lewis said the meeting will be held at the Middlesex Community Building on Tuesday, April 2 at 7 p.m.

Lewis said only questions about the park will be accepted.

“I will be conducting a question answer session, open to the general public and anybody that would like to come,” Lewis said.
