Bliss-McKnight would like the Extreme Sport Area Inspection Form performed on a monthly basis. Dennis Williamson suggested having the Planning office perform the inspections. He stated a part-time person was just hired and she might be able to do the inspection once a month. Jeff said the Parks Board would make a recommendation to the Town Council for the new part-time person in the Planning office or the part-time laborer for the Street Department to perform the inspections once a month.
Jeff questioned whether or not the Medical & Accident Insurance is a necessity. It was noted that there is $862.00 budgeted for it this year. Geraldine suggested asking the council, clerk-treasurer or the attorney if it is needed and what specifically it covers. Jeff will contact Mike Spencer and find out.
Jeff noted that the estimate for clearing the underbrush at the nature park was over $2,000. He then questioned whether or not anyone even uses the park since there is no obvious access, people might not know it is there. There was discussion about the future plans for the park and what the members would like to see happen in the next few years. It was mentioned that a gravel drive to the park and a small parking area are needed, signage needs to be installed to let visitors know where it is located and a trail that is usable needs to be finished. A comment was made about having little or no labor and a limited budget. Dennis Williamson asked about approaching the School Corporation in a joint effort for a parking lot and a start to the gravel walkway from the parking lot to the trail.
