added the rules word for word that the insurance company wanted posted and he
noted that they have indeed been posted at the SkatePark by the Street

thinking of using the space at the SkatePark as a potential
stage for future festivals. Amber informed the board that the next Fall
Festival meeting will be held on June 16, 2005 at in the Cafeteria

Member / Secretary Update
It was brought to
the attention of the Parks Board that in order to serve, you must be a property
owner in Ellettsville. Jeff informed the board that Amber is not a property
owner and therefore cannot be appointed. There is an option to create a
“Secretary” position for the Parks Board and appropriate funds to compensate
that position for attending the meetings and taking minutes if the board so
chooses. Jeff asked the other members if it was something they were interested
in. LD said he liked that idea. Jeff will look into the process.
took the liberty of talking to Hall Signs about signs for the WishingWellNaturePark and brought the
information with him. He said there are 3 different grades of signs, which
indicate the intensity of the sign and 3 corresponding prices for the signs. He
had examples of the signs MonroeCounty uses and said
they have lasted for about 5 or 6 years. Edwin suggested the wording on the
sign should be “Wishing Well Nature Park” and the coloring be more ‘Parks’
appropriate, such as brown or earth tone colors instead of red and blue. Dennis
commented that wouldn’t change the price of the signs. There was discussion
about doing some work to the trails at the park before purchasing signs. Jeff
said he would look into the costs of getting gravel to work on the trails. Jeff
thanked Dennis for doing the legwork on the signs.
L.D. gave some
possible future dates to reschedule the trip to WestBoggsPark. They were June
25, July 16 and July 23. He would like the board to think about these and let
him know at the next meeting.
informed the other members that $81.00 was received this month from Spicer
Enterprises.It was for proceeds from
the Coke Machines located at the SkatePark.
