Bids will be accepted for installing the new hardwood flooring in the gym at the ASPIRE Center.

    The Parks and Recreation Committee met on Tuesday, April 16 and 
discussed the project. Monticello Flooring has agreed to donate the 
new flooring for the ASPIRE Center. The committee has also received 
several donations that will be used to pay for the costs of 
installation of the flooring.
    Parks and Recreation Director Lonnie Chaplin and County Judge-
Executive Mike Anderson will put together a bid sheet to advertise 
for the floor installation. The bid will not include the demolition 
of the existing floor, since Jeff Choate has volunteered to take it 
up and remove it.
    The committee also discussed another improvement project at the 
facility. The community pool needs some repair work prior to the 
upcoming swim season.
    The committee agreed to get quotes for someone to either patch or 
coat the entire pool. City employees will be used to drain the pool 
so that the work can be done.
    In other action, the committee:
    • Discussed how they would handle recognition for those who have 
committee making donations to the ASPIRE Center floor.
    • Agreed to look into the purchase of a camera system for the park 
and the ASPIRE Center.
    • Directed Chaplin to find someone to grade the timber on the newly purchased property at the park.
