5 Year Master Plan
The plan is awaiting final adoption by the town council.
The Board is researching
plans to spend $5,783.96 with an emphasis towards purchasing more permanent
equipment. These funds come from the Build Indiana funds assigned specifically
to the skate park and its facilities.
The town council prepared an ordinance for the rental of the shelter houses. The Town council has a few questions concerning the rental. 1. Where would the fees go upon receiving them? Answer; They would fall into the parks board maintenance budget (materials-231 or miscellaneous supplies-211) and be used for repairs and upkeep of facilities or it could be put into the Parks and Rec. Donation fund –36 and be used for a wider range of purposes. 2. Who would settle disputes concerning shelter house use? Answer; as with any town ordinance dispute, citizens are encouraged to call the local authorities. Any citizen renting a shelter house should be given a copy of their registration and can use this to show proof of facility use authorized by the town for that day. A copy should also be kept in the Town hall. 3. Who will be responsible for taking money for the registration? Answer; Previous conversations with Sandra Hash indicated that the town clerk/treasurer would be willing to take reservations in the manner stated by the registration form. The parks board also discussed creating signs to be posted at all shelter houses that can be flipped or turned over to indicate that the shelter house was reserved for the day. The town clerk also indicated at one time this task could be done by the clerk’s office. Another suggestion would be to have the street department, who is currently maintaining our parks and residing directly across the street, to turn the reserved sign over. A brief discussion concerning signs has taken place with the street department.
Budget - No comment on the budget.
