Sav-A-Life now has a resurfaced parking lot thanks to the help of some local contractors.

Jane Ward, Sav-A-Life executive director, said the parking lot was a great addition to help protect the privacy of clients. She said Dr. Steve Garrett with the Pike Medical Foundation helped get the ball rolling on the improvements for Sav-A-Life’s parking.

“The concrete has been poured and the parking lot is ready to use,” Ward said. “There still has to be some work done when the concrete cures. There’s a big drop off on one side and Todd Kreis is going to put in a three-foot wall for us there. We’ll also have some stripes put in to mark off parking spaces.”
