One Lauderdale County supervisor wants to use $240,000 in interest earned on a 1999 bond to pay off the debt not build a park.
Supervisor Craig Hitt of District 3 disagreed Monday with a plan by Supervisor Q.V. Sykes of District 4 to use the interest for a recreational park next to a planned baseball complex at Lover's Lane.
Sykes said he hopes to build a recreational park next to the baseball fields. The county now has more than $1.5 million in its recreational fund to use for the proposed baseball fields and the park.
