draft Draft

Mr. Culbreth noted this purchase is to place one large playground area on the west side of Scout Park with equipment suitable for children 5-12 years of age at a cost in the amount of $92,984.15.

Mayor Schoaf noted he would like the equipment to be as far west in the park as possible to prevent interference with other uses of Scout Park. He wanted to ensure we are not paying to put in equipment only to turn around and pay to move it a few months later. Mr. Culbreth agreed.

Move to PURCHASE SCOUT PARK PHASE II PLAYGROUND EQUIPMENT at $92,984.15.
