  • The Springville Police Shooting Range, at the mouth of Hobble Creek Canyon is in need of some basic maintenance.  Weeds, garbage collection (shell casings, broken clay pigeons, spent shotgun shells, etc) and raking of gravel and sweeping of sidewalks needs to be done.  There is also some painting on the shade cover that could be done if the group is inclined.
