Aquatics Amenities      Utility Superintendent Vic Kane gave a brief explanation on the proposed purchase of a playground system for the Aquatics Center.  Purchase of this demo model would save the City $14,000.  Additionally, this is the same equipment as recommended by the Aquatics Center Task Force. 

 

                                    Petersen questioned if this was required by the Department of Health before re-opening in 2014.  Sherrets suggested applying to Fayette Co. Foundation for funding assistance.  Letzring stated that an application will be filed for this opportunity.

 

                                    A motion was made by Ericson, seconded by Ryan to purchase the playground equipment from Emerald FX in the amount of $60,000 ($50,000 payable immediately with the balance of $10,000 due upon installation).  Monies for this and other aquatics improvements will be funded from the Local Option Sales Tax.  All voted aye.
