County plans to transfer skate park to city of Sheiton The Mason County Board of Com- missioners is working to transfer op- erations of the skate park to the city of Shelton. The commission approved a letter Tuesday addressed to Shelton Mayor Gary Cronce, asking to set up a meet- ing to talk about the proposal. The skate park, near Oakland Bay Jr. High School, is operated by the county. According to the letter, county staff asked the city whether it planned to take over the skate park in May, but have not yet received a response. City Administrator Dave O'Leary said the city had discussed taking over the skate park last year, but delayed the plans after learning that their Metropolitan Park District funds were projected to drop $129,000 between 2013 and 2014. O'Leary said the city commission will discuss the issue soon. "I don't think by any stretch we're sure to say no," O'Leary said. "Things are tougher than they were a year ago."
