Turkey Trot talks on the table tonight

On the agenda for tonight's meeting of the Parks and Recreation Committee of the City Council is a presentation by area race coordinator George Regan of a proposal to take over the city's annual Turkey Trot event.

According to Committee Chair Gary Galuski, the city coordinator that used to run the event retired late last year, and as for now the city does not have a replacement. Regan has planned or had some level of involvement in Turkey Trot events in the past, as well as a number of other race events like the Freihofer's Run for Women.

The Parks and Recreation Committee meeting begins at 6 p.m. Galuski said he also hopes to get some answers about dogs parks in the city, particularly the closed dog park at Beman Park. For back story on this issue, here is a February article by Tom Caprood outlining the whole dog park drama. Check out tomorrow's issue of the Record for details on Regan's proposal for the Turkey Trot.
