On September 22, we removed the swings from city-owned park playgrounds due to the possibility of a defective bracket. Our playground contractor is scheduled to begin the process of updating the swing brackets on October 18, and we are hopeful to have all of the swings reinstalled at our playgrounds by mid-November. We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your patience as we continue to remedy the situation.
