  • Sports complex hand shake A win for sports complex

    After months of planning and fundraising, Effingham Park District officials finally solidified plans for the Richard E. Workman Sports Complex.

Since then, the Workmans have donated an additional $1 million toward the project added to community donations of $3 million, a recent $500,000 contribution from the city and the park district's ability to issue up to $6.5 million in debt certificates that allowed the district to officially award a bid Thursday from Poettker Construction to construct the complex.
