Town plans ‘Fact or Fiction Night’ regarding community center

Lingle Town Council

LINGLE – The Town of Lingle will host a “Fact or Fiction Night” regarding the proposed new community center, set for 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 10, at the Lingle Legion Hall, council members decided at their meeting Wednesday evening.

Residents are encouraged to attend, listen and ask questions about the building – expected to be built at the site of the current Lingle Legion Post No. 63 at 229 Main St., along with the renovation of an existing, adjacent facility at 237 Main St.

Mayor George Siglin said he’s heard significant amounts of misinformation about the community center project and wants to clear up any inquiries and circulating falsehoods.

“I think it would be great if people will come to it,” council member Greg Asa said. “It’ll be great for them and lay a lot of things out.”
