Vandalism of Basketball Courts
Geraldine McIntyre asked about the vandalism of the basketball courts. Michael Griffey explained one of the basketball goals has been fixed but not put back up yet. Plywood is being installed on the existing frames in place of the Plexiglas. Geraldine asked what the cost is to fix one and how many will be fixed. Michael does not know the cost but will eventually have all six fixed. Geraldine suggested not fixing more than two since it is getting late in the season. It was clarified there is a pair of goals with Plexiglas still intact and the Street Department is in the process of putting up two more. Michael stated the remaining two backboards will be a winter project.
Request to add planning and maintenance of the Gateways to the part-time employee job description
Everyone has received a letter
from the Town Clerk requesting the additional job description for the part-time
park employee. Geraldine asked for
comments. Jimmie Durnil read Section I
of the job description stating the employee will be responsible to the Park and
Recreation Board and more specifically the Parks Board President. This employee will be responsible to the

Naming the Shelter Houses at Campbell’s Park
Amber Ragle explained when people come in to rent the shelter
houses it is hard to distinguish with the public which one they are interested
in. She suggested placing numbers,
letters, or having a contest to name them.
Michael Griffey stated one of the shelter houses has an “In Memory”
framed stone hanging. It would be nice
to honor some of the outstanding people in Ellettsville. Amber spoke with The Journal and they
