|Council looks into ball park|
|Written by Chris Lee|
A work session to discuss restrooms at the ball field was held after a brief Holyoke City Council meeting Tuesday, June 15.
Councilman Kevin Scott brought the issue to the attention of the council at the May 13 meeting.
Instead of looking into the restrooms, council members focused a little more on the bleachers and will consider a mini GOCO (Great Outdoors Colorado) grant for overhead covers for the two middle sets of bleachers.
Issues concerning fall prevention is another area they will look at. The space below the seats in the area where spectators’ feet rest needs to be looked into as well as the rails on the top row, according to city superintendant Mark Brown. City Clerk/Treasurer Kathy Olofson said these items will appear on the next agenda.
Reports of city officials
Brown reported city crews have been busy working on cleaning up after recent storms. He also noted the switch back to the Holyoke Substation went smoothly despite the weather and the citywide power outage was shorter than expected.
Councilman Orville Tonsing also reported the library renovation project was wrapped up June 10.
