April 19, 2010: Public Lands and Buildings Committee

The Public Lands & Buildings Committee met on Monday, April 19th, 2010 at 7:00 P.M. Present were Committee members Councilman Frey, Councilman Ward and Councilman Marko. Also present were Councilman Fisher, Councilman Schlessel, Councilman Gambetese, Councilman LoPresti, Finance Director Mary Kovalchik and Service Director Rick Glady, City Engineer Jeff Filarski and Mayor Cicero.
The meeting was called to review the additional details that had been investigated by the Service Director and the City Engineer as well as to update residents on what direction that City Council was investigating relative to the water amenity at Brainard Park. Invitations were sent out via email to residents that had expressed previous interest/concern over the closing of Brainard Pool but none of those residents were in attendance.
The meeting opened with a review by the Committee Chair, Councilman Frey, on the previous meetings held relative to the feasibility of moving forward with a Spray Park at the Brainard Park site. Finance Director Mary Kovalchik provided a Power Point presentation as an overview of what a Spray Park is, the terminology, and the reasons why municipalities look to supplement their water amenities with this type of lower cost solution.
City Engineer Jeff Filarski reviewed the concept of installing a Spray Ground from the engineering point of view, including reuse of existing infrastructure. Jeff also reviewed the various features that could be offered and a possible timeline for the construction and opening of the Spray ground.
The Committee took a few questions and comments from 3 different residents in attendance.
The Committee briefly discussed next steps noting that monies had already been appropriated during the budget process for the construction of the Spray ground if Council decided to move forward this year.
A motion was made to allow the City Engineer to move forward with the development of plans for a Spray ground at Brainard Park to replace the existing Pool. The Motion carried unanimously.
With no further business, the meeting adjourned at 7:50 P.M.
Respectfully submitted,
David A. Frey, Chairman
