Consider rebuilding a cherished piece of playground equipment.

This petition had 825 supporters

On Wednesday, June 28th, 2017, the "hamster wheel," a popular piece of playground equipment at Ottumwa Park,  was destroyed by a dead tree having fallen during high winds. Ottumwa Parks Director Gene Rathje stated the piece of equipment was unlikely to be repaired/replaced, citing the fact that it had been custom-built as a part of the issue. We the citizens of Ottumwa hereby request that the city consider the possibility of commissioning a company or citizen to produce a replacement piece, whether it be funded by monies already available to the city or donated funds. Please don't let a piece of Ottumwa history be lost forever.
