The terms of service for the Parks Board members were reviewed. L.D. Axsomís term expires 12/31/05. Mr. Axsom informed the board that he was not seeking reappointment.


Jeff Frownfelter has researched the Parks Master Plan. He went to the Indiana Department of Natural Resources website and found the Planning Guidelines for Five Year Parks and Recreation Master Plans and printed it out for all the members. It contains the address and deadline for submitting the plan. It also gives guidelines for writing and submitting grants along with sources of funding. The Master Plan must be submitted before January 15, 2006. Jeff said he would print it out and send it in. He also stated that page 12 mentions the requirement that the Master Plan must contain the Form 504 Assurance of Compliance, which was taken out of our plan. We will still try to submit it and see what happens.


Jeff Frownfelter notified the board that he will be resigning at the end of 2005 and turned in his letter of resignation.


Amber Ragle stated the proceeds from the Coke Machines at the Skate Park were $47.00.


Amber also informed the board that the Street Department would be closing the Parks Restrooms for the winter and would be incurring some minor expenses related to closing them.


Dennis Williamson would like to see the Parks Board work more closely with the Main Street committee on projects. He also would like to sit down with the Street Department and discuss the Part-Time Street/Park employee and give him some more specific direction related to Parks duties.


The meeting was moved to adjourn by Geraldine McIntyre and seconded by Edwin Macatangay. Motion carried.Meeting adjourned at 7:55 pm.
