PANAMA CITY, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - Two and a half years after Hurricane Michael, Calhoun County is looking to restore some of its parks damaged by the storm.

A special county commissioners board meeting was held Thursday to discuss some of the projects the county is working on to continue recovering from Hurricane Michael. One is the restoration of playground equipment at a number of county parks. The county hopes providing new equipment will bring more children to the parks.

“For our kids and all, you know we just spent a lot of money on the parks,” said Gene Bailey, Vice Chairman for the Calhoun County Board of County Commissioners. “We realized what it means to them. It’s a place for their parents to take them. Recreation is a vital element.”

No word on when the new equipment will be installed.
