St. MARYS - The city’s new downtown park was among a topic of discussion during Monday’s St. Marys City Council meeting.

Mayor Chris Pletcher inquired to council as to when the park will be officially named and suggested the endeavor be the first order of business for new City Manager Joe Fleming.

“I think we need to rally up name recommendations,” Pletcher said, proposing a possible naming contest.

Pletcher added he would like to see the park named by the end of the year.

Fleming said he already received two name suggestions including the Elk Creek Park and Foundry Park. He plans to reach out to local schools to get students involved in the naming project.

It was noted the city also has the option to bid out the naming rights to the park in which the area would be deemed a sponsored park.
