Selah neighbors unhappy about plans to potentially sell parks

SELAH, Wash. -- Some neighbors weren't happy about plans to sell some surplus property to pay off millions of dollars in debt. They don't like the idea of selling some parks.

Selah identified several properties that could be sold worth about $2 million. Palm Park and Sunrise Park are on the list. They're worth about $80,000 combined. Parents KIMA spoke with said Selah should hold onto them.

"It'd be devastating if I didn't have a good place for my child to play in my backyard," said Emily Carlson. "Then I would definitely be upset that she wouldn't have a place to go."

A public hearing was postponed because there wasn't enough public notice. City Council plans to vote on the properties to sell on March 26th.
