RECREATION DIRECTOR’S REPORT

 

The Recreation Committee read the Recreation Director’s Report. Mr. Adams verbally added that Rob Ketcham has already installed 1 of 2 sky lights in the bathhouse at the Recreation Area and he was working collecting prices on lumber and paint to be able to finish the project. The issue of what to do with the concrete walls in the bathrooms was discussed. It’s the feeling of the Recreation Committee and Recreation Director that something should be done to the walls before they are painted to give them a smoother and clean look. Mr. Ketcham noted that the center concrete wall may be already have “stuck-o” & paint on it. Mr. Adams said that he couldn’t recall what that exact wall looked like, but said he would look the next time that he is at the Recreation Area.

 

OLD BUSINESS

 

2004/2005 Work Plan

Mr. Adams presented a draft copy of the 2004/2005 Work Plan that he will presenting to the Board of Selectmen at their meeting on September 15, 2004. He stated that he had been asked by Mr. Balch to include more detail about the programs the Recreation Department plans to offer for the remaining FY 05 to give the Selectmen a better idea as to what the Recreation Department will be doing over the next 9 months.

 

Recreation Committee Vacancies

To spur more interest he asked everyone to talk up the Committee to the people they come in contact with. The next deadline for Recreation Committee Letters of Interest to be received is Friday, October 29, 2004.

 

NEW BUSINESS

 

Scott Eugair, Mighty Mites Baseball Coach

NOTE: The spring of 2004 was very cold and wet. According to the rainfall meter at the Pittsford Wastewater Plant over 8” of rain fell during the month of May ’04. (In May of ’03 only 4.35”, about half.)

 

Coach Eugair attended the meeting to discuss his feelings about Memorial Field (Lower Rec. Field). Most of his home games, during the months of May and June ‘04, that were originally scheduled at Memorial Field were either postponed or moved to one of the two upper fields at the Recreation Area due to Memorial Field being too wet to play on. He suggested that work needed to be done so that the field would drain better. Mr. Eugair mentioned different ways the work could be completed such as a volunteer work day or weekend. He stated he knew plenty of people who would like to see improvements made and are willing help out. Mr. Eugair was informed of the Recreation Department’s Work Plan for FY 05 which stated that they were finish both the upper fields by cutting the infield in on the 2nd baseball field and would be putting in protective fences in front of the bench areas on both fields, before they did anything with Memorial Field. That way when any work was approved to be done on Memorial Field there would be another location to practice and play games while the work would be completed.

 

With no further business to discuss, Scott Kirby made the motion to adjourn the meeting.

 

Kathy Shortsleeves seconded the motion. The motion passed unanimously.

 

The meeting adjourned at 8:20pm.

  

Respectfully submitted,
