Shelter house project

The commissioners discussed plans for a new shelter house at the Sixth Street Park. Jeremiah Engelken was not present at the meeting, but he shared a written plan. After discussion, the commissioners approved moving forward with the new shelter house project, with the bid price of $94,765.

Plans include demolition of the current restrooms along Parkview Street, tearing out the existing shelter house on the east side of the park, and building a new shelter house with restrooms. The shelter house will be 32 feet by 46 feet with two bathrooms and will be similar to the shelter house at the Mary Cotton Library Park. The project will be completed by Escape Construction, with Goodman Construction doing all concrete work. They look to complete the project in May/June or possibly the fall.
