At the Oct. 13 Pamplin Town Council meeting, it was shared that the town had received complaints about playground maintenance. The mayor stated that a plan for the playground would be needed.

Council members weighed various ideas such as moving it closer to the depot and installing a more current and safer playground. Grants for a possible new playground are being sought out — the playground conversation will be continued in future meetings.

As reported by the new town clerk, Rebecca McFadden, at the meeting, Pamplin City’s account balances are as follows: general, $26,501.97; payroll, $6,248.88; and utility, $10,554.84.
