SPRING VALLEY - A sports field in Spring Valley has been reopened after it was suddenly closed this week.

The field is on one end of Memorial Park, just off of the village's downtown business district.

Spring Valley Mayor Demeza Delhomme ordered it closed for repairs saying rocks are coming out under the weeds covering the field where children play.

The closure order was reversed after several sports leagues complained they were still in the middle of their seasons. "I said ‘OK, we will open it.’ But we may not be able to finish fixing it up this year, because if we start in September, it might be too late," says Delhomme.

The village board has to vote on the proposed repairs to the field before work can begin.
