The Carmel/Clay Board of Parks and Recreation met Sept. 11 to discuss sidewalk repairs, new cardio equipment for the Monon Community Center and more.
What happened: The board approved $31,853 for sidewalk repairs near the Monon Community Center and The Waterpark.
What it means: The repairs will fix uneven surfaces that have likely occurred from cracking and settling and ensure ADA compliance. Smith Projects submitted the lowest of three bids and received the contract.
What’s next: Repairs are expected to begin in early October and take less than a month to complete.
What happened: The board approved $52,205 to replace aging cardio equipment and purchase new equipment at the Monon Community Center.
What it means: The MCC’s Arc Trainers are original to the building and no longer under warranty. The new ones will include embedded TVs and advanced technology. CCPR also will add a seated elliptical because the existing one is popular and often has guests waiting to use it.
What’s next: The equipment is expected to be installed the week of Oct. 29.
What happened: The board approved a change order to the West Commons Phase II project at Central Park, leading to savings of $25,000.
What it means: The $25,000 was a contingency allowance for the $263,000 project and was unused.
What’s next: The project is complete.
