The committee has some benches that they need some help with placement and would like some additional signage ordered and would like the City to consider paying for the signs.

A joint ad for bids will be placed in the near future for work to be completed behind the high school (trail committee funded), near Robinson Park (trail committee funded) and in the northeast park (City funded). Recommendation was to have City Administrator set up a meeting with two Council members, trail committee members, and street and golf department superintendents to discuss expectations for the trail and how much the City will be able to assist.
