The DeSoto Board of County Commissioners gave approval to allow free lighting at the Brewer Park Complex for two baseball organizations during the fall and winter months. The move comes after two residents requested an extension of park hours so their teams could practice on select fields in the park.
Tara Anderson, director of the Parks and Recreation Department, said the current policy is to gradually cut the park’s lights by 15 minutes every few weeks until November, when the park closes at sundown. Anyone wanting to use the lights would pay an hourly rate of $40-$100 depending on which field they were occupying. She said in the past, however, youth baseball organizations run by Trey Turner and Ben Adams had been given a six-month extension that allowed lighting free of charge for after-dark practices and games.
