The Ellettsville Parks and Recreation Board met on December 5, 2005 at the Fire Department Training and Conference Center. Members present were Jeff Frownfelter, President; Edwin Macatangay, Vice President; L.D. Axsom, Geraldine McIntyre and Amber Ragle.


Approve Minutes of November 7, 2005

Geraldine McIntyre made a motion to accept the minutes for the November meeting. L.D. Axsom seconded. Motion carried.


Approve Accounts Payable/Review Expenditures

Expenditures were reviewed for the previous month. Amber informed the board that the part-time Street/Park employee will be going full-time for the Street Department due to a resignation in the Street Department. Edwin asked if a new part-time employee will be hired. Amber said she would find out.


Report on Gravel Purchase

Jeff Frownfelter called Hanna Trucking and inquired about prices for gravel at the Wishing Well Nature Park. Hanna quoted him a price of $10.45/ton for #11 Crushed Stone. One truck can haul 20 tons, which is $210.00 approximately. He thinks that it is approximately 2,400 feet to the wells and if you made a path that is 4 to 6 wide at 4 thick, it would take about 8 loads of gravel. L.D. suggested putting #53s down first and #11s over it. Jeff said he would get a price from Hanna for 53s. Edwin Macatangay made a motion to approve an expense of up to $2,500.00 for gravel to cover the trail at the Wishing Well Nature Park. Geraldine McIntyre seconded. Motion carried. Amber was instructed to make a Purchase Order to Hanna Trucking for gravel for the Wishing Well Nature Park


Mailing of Master Plan

Jeff Frownfelter said he had misplaced his copy of the Master Plan and the CD the information was on and is waiting on another copy from Mr. Segedy. When he receives it, the Master Plan will be ready to mail. He informed Amber that when he receives the information, he would deliver it to Town Hall to get ready for mailing. He requested a letter accompany the Master Plan that indicated the names of the current Parks Board Members and contact information for them.


New Business

Amber Ragle stated the proceeds from the Coke Machines at the Skate Park were $27.00.


Amber had a list of the proposed meeting dates for the Parks Board. The board agreed that those dates would be fine.


The meeting was moved to adjourn by L.D. Axsom and seconded by Geraldine McIntyre. Motion carried. Meeting adjourned at 7:34 pm.
