Since announcing two weeks ago that the city wished to add playground equipment for children with disabilities to the Mt. Carmel City Park, it has received more than $10,000 in donations to help bring that dream to reality.
Deron Hawkins of Energy Systems Group, Inc. arrived at Monday’s regular City Council meeting to hand $3,000 of his company’s money over to officials in support of the effort. ESG — the Evansville company in the process of retrofitting several city systems so that Mt. Carmel may realize energy savings — makes a point to give back to the communities it serves in southwestern Indiana, southern Illinois and Western Kentucky, he told officials.
