McMinnville Parks and Recreation director Scott McCord has received permission from the Board of Mayor and Aldermen to spend $17,500 to brighten the dimly lit Cat Walker Field to increase its use.The measure passed 7-0 with Mayor Jimmy Haley, Vice Mayor Ben Newman and Aldermen Mike Neal, Jimmy Bonner, Ryle Chastain, Steve Harvey and Everett Brock voting in favor. McCord asked permission from the city’s Parks and Recreation Committee last month to take money from his existing budget and improve the lighting situation. “We have one ball field that does not have lights, Pete Holt, and one that only has half lights, Cat Walker Field,” said McCord.
