Mayor and Commissioners: I wanted to get this information out to all of you. First, Trent Rogers has resigned from the Park Board. He stated he was going to be very busy the next few months and didnt feel like he could do justice to the board. I spoke with Mayor Weaver and he has nominated Glen Reser. We will have his name as appointee on the next agenda. We are shooting for the same day as the joint work session in order to get him on board.
Attached are two pieces of playground equipment that the same company where we purchased the equipment for the big park has in storage in Seattle. Someone else had ordered these but then decided they didnt need/want them. We can purchase both pieces for $31,000; original price for both around $41,000. Theyve also thrown in free shipping. The rep, Cherryl, came yesterday and looked at Charlies Park and said either one would fit there. Both pieces in storage are green and tan in color. The green one in the picture is designed for 5-12 year olds and the blue one in the picture for 2-5 year olds. This is a good price for both pieces. I would like to purchase both of them. Right now they are holding them until a decision is made.
Ill get this same information to the Park Board members.

Park Slalom Glider (recalled in City Park)
Sent: Wed, Aug 1, 2012 4:02 pm
I received new information concerning the Slalom Glider at the city park. I contacted the owner of ACS Playground Adventures. This is the company that originally installed the playground amenity and he confirmed that the new slide shall not fit on the existing support poles. Given this new knowledge the city took steps Monday to further secure the area. City staff removed the glider and fenced off the remaining support poles and ladder area with orange safety fence. ACS also informed us that the delivery date for the replacement slide has again been pushed back to a ship date of September 9th.
I am now trying to see if it would be possible to have the existing poles removed and the play surface patched as a separate operation from the slide replacement install. My logic thread on this is that the experienced contract crew that is removing many slides and patching expensive play surface material would do less damage to the surface than in house city staff in getting the existing poles out of there. If we can get this done then the orange safety fence can be removed as we await the new slide
We will continue to monitor the situation.
