Talk of merging the Carbondale Park District with the City of Carbondale has been going on for several years.  Kathy Renfro, the Park District's Executive Director says she recently received a proposal from City Officials, and  says she is hopeful meaningful dialogue can resume.

"And so now that we are identifying common goals, and have gotten the conversation around to, what I believe was always at the root of it.  What is in the best interests of the taxpayer."
