Senator Mannion secures Dormitory Authority grant for Hoopes Park work

The city of Auburn is getting $150,000 from the state Dormitory Authority for upgrades to the city’s Hoopes Park.

What will the state grant be used for?

Auburn City Clerk Chuck Mason says State Senator John Mannion helped secure the grant money for repairs and improvements.

The last time the pond was dredged was in 2014 and the wall has begun to deteriorate over the last three years.

Mason thanked Mannion for his work in securing the grant. Due to redistricting, Mannion will no longer represent Auburn, beginning next year.
