Corinth Mayor Tommy Irwin said he plans to meet with local park officials next week to discuss the Crossroads Regional Park playground, which was closed in July due to safety concerns.
A specific date had not been set for the meeting.
Irwin said it is “absolutely” important for him to address issues with the playground for the benefit of local children.
Over the years, the playground had suffered from some deterioration.
The mayor said it was too early to discuss specific plans for the playground. More details were expected to be available after next week’s meeting.
Corinth/Alcorn Parks and Recreation Director Ray Holloway and possibly a park board member are expected to participate in the meeting, the mayor said.
Holloway could not be reached for comment.
The mayor said he may be the only official from the city of Corinth who attends the meeting.
