AUDIO: Courthouse Park Pavillion gains support



Support appears strong for a covered stage structure in Janesville's Lower Courthouse Park.   Former Janesville Parks Director Tom Presney came out of retirement Monday night to join others is talking up the project before the city council.  Forward Janesville President John Beckord told the city council the structure could inspire other development.  Downtown Development Association Chair Britten Grafft says her group would help make it a showpiece.  South Central Wisconsin Builders Association President Norm Paulson says the group wants to construct the structure as a way to give back to the community.  SCWHBA would chip in $100 thousand to the effort.  The Marvin Roth family has already committed $50 thousand.  The city is being asked to add $75 thousand.  The council is scheduled to vote on the project on May 27th.
