Loving Field closing imminent

It’s been more than a year since Pulaski Town Council voted to sell a portion of Loving Field to Pulaski County.
Later this month, they hope to complete the sale.
It was June 2008 when council voted to sell the property to the county. However, the deal has never been officially closed.
Town Manager John Hawley said last week the county doesn’t want to close the sale until a mobile home that has been on the property for a number of years is removed. The home is owned and occupied by a man who kept watch over the property for the town.
Hawley said the man was notified in June that he would have 60 days after the closing date to have the mobile home moved. The town then notified the county it was ready to close and asked for a date to be set.
Hawley said a date was never set because of the county’s desire to have the home moved prior to closing.
The town manager is now hoping to move will be completed in time for a mid-September closing date.
Last year, the town agreed to deed to the county roughly 35 acres for one dollar, with the primary goal being to ensure that quality recreation fields are available to citizens. The property in question contains the ball fields and parking lots.
The town will still own almost 100 acres of the Loving Field tract, which is located outside the town limits between Robinson Tract and Alum Spring roads.
In was pointed out at a March 2008 meeting that the ball fields have fallen into disrepair over the years due to a lack of understanding over who was responsible for maintaining them.
In 2002, a maintenance agreement was developed between the town and county, but Hawley indicated it was never signed by either party.
Under that agreement, he indicated, mowing and game-day preparation of the fields was the county’s responsibility, while major maintenance on things such as the lights were the town’s responsibility.
"Beyond that there are kind of gray areas," Hawley said of the agreement.
