KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- The city of Kalamazoo is seeking to purchase Bronson Park from Kalamazoo County.

A letter to County Corporate Counsel Thomas Canney from City Attorney Clyde Robinson cites two primary reasons for the move. The city wants to seek a combination of grants private funding to make improvements to the park's fountain, as well as clear up any confusion on the part of the public about which governmental body actually runs the park.

While a plan of action is considered, the city is seeking a one-year extension of the recently expired fifty-year lease on the park which the city has been leasing through a series of agreements with the county since 1855.
