A few more feet of fencing was approved (i.e. a recommendation to the
city commission) to cover a gap at the north west end for missed shots
that could roll down the hill otherwise.
This item was tabled until a future meeting after a lengthy discussion
with no action taken. After starting with a preference for a deposit system
to encourage cleanup it will likely end up instead with a straight fee
(likely $10 for residents or $20 for non-residents) to reserve any one
of the shelters in the city park for 1 & 1/2 hours), If someone leaves
a mess they are subject to a fine. The reservation fees would be paid
in advance at City Hall to reserve a shelter for a specific date/time.
Otherwise it is hoped that common courtesy and sharing will allow a smooth
flow of (free) usage for as many folks as possible who don't have a specific
need. The two new shelters (near the splash pad and play equipment) don't
have the tables installed yet but the equipment is available. The softball
field is the only other location reservable in the park and that is already
handled via city hall.
[Other park features that are NOT reservable: splash pad, play
equipment, basketball court, and skate ramps. I'll have to check on the
High School use of the tennis courts to see if those are coordinated with
City Hall.] -- Ted
