OKEECHOBEE — Bridgette Waldau updated the city council on Cattleman’s Square Oct. 18, and said she was happy the park survived the storm. She said things will be even more stable now that the concrete pads have been installed. She explained the delay was due to a concrete shortage. They are now waiting for fill dirt and sod. Soon they will be putting up entrance gates and signage. She also mentioned they are working on having the “Welcome to Okeechobee” signs touched up, and Silver Spurs is donating that work.
Tammy Cook Weedon of Calvin, Giordano & Associates Inc. gave the council an update on the Veterans’ Square conceptual plan and the schedule for the completion of the rest of the conceptual plans for the remaining parks.
