5. Status on Trail Construction. -- The park board members walked over to the south end of the new trail and could see the partially paved trail which is expected to be "substantially" completed by the first week of January.

The park board was joined by Pam Polk, Angela McGinness, Steve Tinker and Brad Francis at the Tuesday meet at City Park. (see additional photo below),

6. Discussion and possible action on recommendation for Park Shelters. -- Approved (i.e a recommendation to the city commission): the "Northwest" shelter design with a request for an alternate bid for potential addition of stone columns. The photo above/right shows stone columns that are not included in the quoted estimate ($34,134 for each of two picnic shelters). The slab is also not included in that quote but is covered elsewhere in the Land & Water Grant (see item 4 above).
