The minutes from the previous month were approved as written.
Steve is arranging the date and time for a meeting with Darren Marsh from Dane County Parks regarding the bike path through Anderson Park.
Steve will be getting a quote from Nikolas Tree Trimming for pruning Bi-Centennial Park and Town Park this winter.
Jeff presented bids based on sketch B for the Town Park Entrance. The bids are from Maple Leaf and Timberland. Jeff also asked for a bid to spread the dirt down the sides. Timberland would be able to complete the project this fall, but Maple Leaf wasn’t sure. Jeff recommended Timberland. Bob moved to recommend hiring Timberland to include spreading the dirt and Jeff seconded the motion. Motion carried. Steve asked Jeff to present to the town board on Tuesday, November 1st. Also, check with Abel on the number of hours they would put into this project for a cost comparison.
Steve talked with the boy scouts about using the Boy Scout logo on park signs. Steve will have an email sent to approve usage.
Steve discussed an agenda item at the Village of Oregon board meeting regarding additional athletic playing fields in the town. Athletic fields are in the master plan for Anderson Park, but are far out. The Village is aware that the town doesn’t support athletic fields in the town’s park system.
Steve will visit Troop 168 after the holidays regarding potential Eagle Scout projects. Steve is still looking for a member on the park committee.
Jeff asked about a little library in one of the neighborhood parks.
The next park board meeting is scheduled for Monday, November 14, 2016. No December meeting.
Bob moved to adjourn the meeting and Jeff seconded the motion. Motion carried.
