Results of meeting at Pavilion site related: reduce volleyball to one court only and place east of pavilion; playground moved south of pavilion; drop-off drive originally placed on north side then relocated to west edge of pavilion.
Waiting for dry weather. Area marked off.
Fairmont minerals waiting for dry weather to install. It will be built according to regulations. Roger would like to see plans before built. Probably won’t be ready for dedication.
Drop-off drive has been installed and materials for base on site. Ironman ready to do concrete layout
Roger will get a 3x5 flag for dedication. Has a larger one that was his father’s that he is willing to donate for flag pole. Will try and locate.
Rain delayed building of tables. Plan to start them this Sunday and have 6 done for dedication. Oberland Maple to donate $100 toward 6th table.
Grass on field is coming in a little better now. May improve when warms up. Material leaching out of soil on hillside above ballfield was checked by ODNR. Determined it was not gas, oil or other hazardous material but iron leaching out of ground.
North side of triangle widened and filled in.
Jan passed out copies of Munson Township pavilion usage rules and application. Park Board to review for next meeting. Need to decide as groups are requesting use of pavilion. 4th grade would like to use for end of the year picnic on June 6th.
