Meeting: Jasper Park Board

The Jasper Park Board met Tuesday and:

• Approved updating the software of 11 computers at the Older Americans Center to Microsoft Windows 10 at a cost of $9,273.

• Heard that August was a good month at Buffalo Trace Golf Course, and the course is on track to having a good summer if numbers stay up during September and October.

• Opened bids for a trash truck. Bids for gas and diesel trucks were opened from Ruxer Ford and Uebelhor and Sons, both of Jasper. The bids — which came in around $100,000 — were taken under advisement and will come back before the board at its next meeting, set for 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 8, at City Hall, 610 Main St.

• Approved the laying of new blacktop on a 285-foot stretch of the Jasper Riverwalk, as well as an area near the concession stand at the William Schroeder Soccer Complex. The total cost of the projects is roughly $15,800, and both will be completed this fall. Calcar Paving of Paoli will complete the work.

• Heard an update on the conversation regarding the possible decommissioning of seldom-utilized city parks. The board will share recommendations for each of the seven parks at the October meeting.
