Repairs Under Way At Cannon County Sports Complex

CREATED Mar 11, 2014 - UPDATED: Mar 11, 2014

CANNON COUNTY, Tenn. - Repairs are underway at a sports complex in Cannon County.

A strong storm on Halloween left behind significant damage to the public baseball and softball fields in Woodbury.

Up until the weekend, the light poles and other damage had not been fixed.

So far, nine of the 31 light poles have been replaced and the power has been turned back on.

However, parents worry that's it is a cheap fix and the fields still aren't safe.

Cannon County's Director of Maintenance told NewsChannel 5 the fields have been inspected and the county only replaced the light poles which did not pass inspection.

The county said cold weather was the reason for the delays in the repairs.
