Changes Coming to Bellefontaine Youth Football Program


The Bellefontaine Joint Recreation District Board of Trustees met in regular session Tuesday evening.

The bulk of the meeting included a discussion with Bellefontaine’s Youth Football & Cheerleading representative, Josh Stolly. Stolly and several other city coaches requested some changes in their program for 2023. Superintendent, Kris Myers explains:

The board continued with the superintendent’s report from Kris Myers. Myers reported that registration for the 2023 year will be live, online, in approximately one week and brochures are planned to go out to students next week. Two playgrounds have been installed within the last few weeks within the city. Ratleff and Myrtle parks are set to open those playgrounds within the month.

The Logan County Land Trust is assisting the city with the preservation efforts of an 1800s log cabin that was relocated to Camp Myeerah in the 1960s. The city is looking to apply for grants to help preserve the cabin so that residents can enjoy it for many years to come.

The Hoffman pool will see some potential staff changes this summer. Myers mentioned to the board that some management may be moving on and he is looking to hopefully hire within.

In March, the trustees will take a look at some possible renovations to the city’s skate park which was installed over 10 years ago with help from the Bellefontaine Rotary Club. The park is widely used and is seeing some wear.

The next board meeting is set for Tuesday, March 7, at 7 PM in the Bellefontaine City Council Chambers.
