Park Renovation

KMB was awarded a Cigarette Litter Prevent Program grant.  This project is to raise awareness  and let people know that cigarette butts are litter too. Receptacles will be placed at Carter Park, Dotson Park & East Madison Park. 

KMB will distribute 200 portable and 400 pocket ash trays to adult smokers.  This will provide for proper disposal of cigarette butts.

All of Bastrop's parks are tobacco free, thanks to the lobbying done by KMB members.
