TOWN OF MORRISON – Before it begins its regular meeting at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, July 10, at the town hall, the Morison Town Board will be meeting across the street to talk about Way-Morr County Park.

The town has concerns about the growth and maintenance of the county-owned park. The park consists of just under 16 acres of land at County G and County Z, but there’s a one-acre parcel in the northwest corner of the park that is owned by the Wayside-Morrison Lions Club, and has the clubhouse and a separate open-air pavilion.

The county-owned portion of the park, through which the Branch River runs, includes ball diamonds, an enclosed pavilion, a large parking lot, a children’s playground, tennis courts and woodlands.

Town officials will meet with representatives of the Brown County Parks Department at the park at 6:30 p.m. to talk and tour. It is a public meeting, and anyone can tag along. Results of the tour will be discussed at the town board meeting , but no action is anticipated.

Another topic on the 7:30 p.m. agenda is a discussion on whether the town should continue as a member of the coalition operating and using the Brown County Towns’ Joint Municipal Court. Expenses for the court have changed since the court was first formed. The agenda allows for a decision on that item.
