The Trenton Park Board has approved a request from Courtney Deaver to use the walking trail at Eastside Park November 1st for what she's calling a zombie walk.

It's to honor soldiers and veterans.

Ms. Deaver indicated everyone can participate, including young children and those in wheel chairs. She plans to get military men and women to be located along the trail.
Ms. Deaver also plans to have T-shirts available, and to talk with merchants about making donations for door prizes. She indicated it will not be a timed event.

The Park Board voted to waive the deposit and fees for use of the Rock Barn next Thursday---September 11th---for an appreciation luncheon for First Responders. It's being sponsored by local and area businesses, organizations, and individuals. The vote to waive those costs was contingent on the Rock Barn being available for the event.

The Park Board approved a bid from BSN Sports of Dallas, Texas for a 20 foot wide backstop at upper Moberly ballfield. The cost is slightly over 32-hundred dollars.

The board decided to table, until next spring, consideration of a concrete slab for a containment facility at Ebbe Sports Complex. It would be used to store ground materials for the ballfields at the complex. The decision to postpone consideration for that project came after Board member, Duane Helmandollar, said there are other projects which need to be completed first. He mentioned work at Moberly Park and the Rock Barn as examples. The Rock Barn work includes placement of waterline and restroom improvements---both after the Missouri Day Festival.

Other projects to be done in the near term are the installation of a water fountain at Ebbe Sports Complex. It's hoped the equipment will arrive within 2 weeks.

Metal for the score keepers area at Johnson Field is to be installed when the metal arrives---which was expected by tomorrow (Friday).

Grading and seeding in connection with a road tube project at Ebbe Sports Complex are to be done when the soil dries. Catch basin grates also are to be installed.

Park Board member, Duane Helmandollar, said the Trenton Family Aquatics Center did not stay open longer in the season because there were not enough available lifeguards.
He said the lifeguards had other activities. The number of swimmers also declines late in the pool season.

The pool did not reopen on weekends because of the costs for the needed pool chemicals.

Helmandollar indicated the Park Department does not make money from operating the pool. The facility was described as a benefit for the community.

The Park Board also held a closed session for personnel matters.
