The Carthage City Commission approved a contract with Kraftsman Play on Monday in order to move forward with plans for an upcoming splash pad at Davis Park.
The $309,000 splash pad is currently about two thirds of the way funded, with $200,000 coming from the Carthage Economic Development Corporation and the Carthage Improvement Corporation. The city hopes to fundraise for the rest of the project's costs.
