    The spirit of cooperation normally exhibited at the joint city-county government meetings eroded Tuesday as commissioners, magistrates and recreation board members held a lengthy and vigorous debate on the rec boards funding.

    At issue: The citys apparent demand that the rec department mow the Rev. Ross Park and the Pleasant Street park.

    Both of those parks are city-owned and do not fall under the umbrella of the rec department. In fact, the Rev. Ross Park has its own committee.
