WINSTED, CT - 15 September, 2008 - 091508MO02 - Recreation Director Joe Nichols said he hopes to have the town skate park open by the weekend. The park, seen here Monday afternoon, has been closed since June 25, when Town Manager Keith J. Robbins shut it down due to damaged ramps. Nichols said the repairs are being handled in-house in order to save money. He was working alone later in the day, and said town staff will be asked to help out. Jim Moore Republican-American.
