That's according to Trenton Park Superintendent, Jason Shuler. He said the park department has been assisting contractor, Performance Sports Fields, with tilling and hauling materials.

In a report to the Trenton Park Board yesterday evening, Superintendent Shuler said Johnson Field has been tilled and the infield grading has been completed. The next steps include outfield grading and infield drainage.

Work is weather permitting. Also discussed was dugout work at the Ebbe Sports Complex.

A ditch north of Mark Griffin Memorial Field, at the sports complex, is to have a drainage tube installed when the ground is dry enough. The Trenton Street and Park Departments are to be involved in that project.

A proposed Ebbe Sports Complex sign was viewed by the Park Board. There was discussion about whether to have black or white lettering---with a desire to have the lettering readable from a distance. Samples are to be sought, and Park Board members are asked to look at lettering on other signs in Trenton to help reach a decision. The topic is to be discussed again at next month's Park Board meeting. The proposed sign viewed by the Park Board was similar to the 1 at the Moberly Park entrance. Park Board member, Robert Shields, has been a leader in the project.

Shields also briefly discussed development of a brochure. It's for fundraising efforts for the long talked about proposed tennis court project at Moberly Park. The brochure is expected to be shown at next month's meeting of the the Trenton Park Board.

Trenton City Attorney, Tara Walker, gave the annual presentation on the duties and requirements of Park Board members, meeting procedures, the Missouri open meetings law, conflicts of interest and the City's purchasing policy. The presentation is required by the City's insurance carrier for City personnel.

Assistant Park Superintendent, Don Kennedy, attended the Park Board meeting and was recognized. The Park Board last month approved his employment.

The Park Board also met in closed session last night regarding personnel.
