People who walk at Antrim Township Community Park will soon be able to tell how far they've gone.

Approval for the purchase of decals to be placed at one-10th mile intervals on the shared use trail was among the park-related items handled by township supervisors Tuesday night.

Rodney Eberly, park director, said people who enjoy the shared use trail have asked for a way to indicate the distance they have traveled.

Supervisors approved the purchase of 15 decals for $20 each, as well as 10 "field closed" signs to use at the park as weather dictates for $8 each.

Supervisors also backed the recommendation of the parks committee for almost $11,000 more in park and recreation grants.

Two weeks ago, supervisors approved the committee's recommendations for $27,000 of the annual $40,000 allocation and asked the committee what to do with the remainder.

The second round of grants awarded Tuesday night totaled $10,991 and includes G-A Fastpitch, $272; Shady Grove Improvement Association, $738; State Line Ruritan Club, $6,250; and Tayamentasachta, $3,731.
