Workers from Broski Fence Company finished up their work erecting a border fence around the football field used by the Missouri Wolverines in Heim Park in the East Bottoms earlier this week.
In a story we brought you in last week’s Northeast News, the field had been the scene of repeated acts of vandalism, including the latest which took place on August 28th when two pick-up trucks and a Toyota Prius turned donuts in the field after a rainstorm, damaging the field to such a point, Kansas City Parks officials told Wolverines President Jim Tuso that the season was over for his 200 or so youth athletes involved in the program.
Tuso worked diligently with Advanced Turf Management in Parkville as well as KCMO Public Works Director Michael Shaw to successfully salvage both the season and the field.
Following the field repair, the city’s Parks Department started work on a four foot chain link fence to surround the field. That work was completed Tuesday.
