Jarrod Frans and Jeremy met with the board to go over some project ideas for the North Triangle. They stated the area is 80,000 square feet. They turned in an estimate of $52,125.00 to remove the grass and replace with three different types of stone covering. They estimated work would last 2-3 weeks. They also proposed an annual contract for $100.00 per year to re-spray ground killer to keep weeds and grass out of the area. They are bonded and insured. Next, David Earnest met with the board and proposed leaving most of the grass except an approximately 20 foot area around the sign, which would be rocked. He also spoke about adding in more drought resistant native plants. He gave an approximate bid of $6,000.00
and said work could be done in approximately 10 days. We asked for him to submit an annual contract to maintain the triangle which he was to get to Donnis or Julia before the City Council meeting. The board voted to ask the City Council for $50,000 to $60,000 for zero scape at North Triangle.
Julia states she has spoken to Wildcat and the tables are in line to be done and should be placed at the Mini Park soon.
Jerry Ford had spoken with the manager at the Swimming Pool and she gave a wish list of things she would like to see done in the future. They are: Slip resistant flooring around pool, ceiling fans in snack area, life guard stands with shade, benches and picnic tables with shade umbrellas, ceiling over the bathroom stalls to keep dirt out and a tube slide. Jerry is still looking at the possibility of the Rhino paint for the pool and this could possibly be used around the edge of the pool to prevents slips as well.
