The starting compensation for the job is slightly over $12 an hour ($12.03).

There were 9 applicants for the assistant park superintendent position. 5 persons were interviewed.

The Park Board also has voted to seek someone to take the minutes at Park Board meetings, type them, and give the information to City Clerk, Cindy Simpson. The compensation is $25 a meeting. Persons interested in performing that job are asked to contact Trenton Parks Superintendent, Jason Shuler.

The park board approved a bid from Sharp Stonework of Liberty to do perform labor for blockwork at the Johnson ballfield dugouts and score keepers area. It's to match what the same company performed at Mark Griffin Memorial field. The price also is the same---slightly over $4700.

The park department is supplying the materials----most of which previously were purchased. Park Superintendent Shuler estimated an additional $300 to $400 will need to be spent for capstones.

Renovations to Johnson field have been delayed by the recent wet weather. Although some work has taken place, Shuler said the field will need to be pretty dry before laser grading can take place there.

The playing surface renovations at Griffin field have been completed. A road tube and hardware have been received to install in the ditch north of Griffin field. There's also some dugout seating to do.

The park department received more than $1300 from the Grundy Water Safe organization---which has disbanded. The money is to be used for an automated external defibrillator and training. Shuler explained the the park department was requested to use the donation towards some type of water safety purpose.

Dennis Browning and Delvin Wilford were mentioned as being affiliated with the Grundy County Water Safe organization. Park board president, Don Altes, expressed thanks for what he called a wonderful donation.

Altes also thanked Marvin Sharp for donating a self propelled push lawnmower to the park department. Altes called the donation a wonderful gift.

Park Board member, Duane Helmandollar, thanked the Master Gardeners for care of flowers and other landscaping work in the parks this year.

Park Superintendent Shuler is to look into the possibility of rerouting a waterline in the Rock Barn area to prevent a waterline freeze if the building is not heated enough. It's an effort to reduce heating costs at the Rock Barn. They were estimated at $300 to $400 a month---just to heat to around 50 degrees.

Discussion about a wage scale for the superintendent and assistant superintendent was postponed to the next meeting.
