The anticipated reopening of Alfred McKethan Park at Pine Island may be put off again. County Parks Director Pat Fagan said Tuesday that construction delays may prevent the park and beach from opening as scheduled Monday. But it should open by July 1 at the latest, Fagan said. The park has been closed since the March 13 storm.

BROOKSVILLE _ The Brooksville City Council on Monday approved a base annual salary of $40,000 for Jim Malcolm, who two weeks ago became interim city manager. He will be paid about $23 hourly for his services while in the post. By midsummer, council members hope to select a new city manager to relieve Malcolm, who took over after Jim Cummings' retirement.
