OLD BUSINESS/a)   Osborn Field Snack Bar Renovations:

Discussion took place regarding the improper installation of the donated ansul system at the Osborn Field Snack Bar.  As this put the Town in a liability situation, a letter must be sent to the Little League Organization stating that the fry-o-lator can not be used until the proper repairs are made to code by a licensed Connecticut installer/inspector and approved by the Town’s Fire Marshall.  The repair expense is to be born by the Little League Association.  

It was noted that a “K” Class extinguisher was also required.  The Parks and Recreation Department will cover this expense.

OLD BUSINESS/b)   East Windsor Park Tennis Courts Reconstruction:

This project will commence on June 26, 2006 with the pulverization of the present court surface.  The material will be removed along with the fencing, the base will be prepared and a new surface to be applied.  New fencing will be installed and the courts will be painted blue and green.  The project is projected to take approximately 5-6 weeks to completion.

NEW BUSINESS/a)  Financial Accounts Review:

The Monthly Budget by Department was handed out and discussed.  

Discussion took place as to expenditure of available funds to close out the fiscal year which ends June 30, 2006.
NEW BUSINESS/b)  Park Director’s Report:


                Director Green stated there was a large weekend pavilion rental at East Windsor                         Park which went smoothly.

                Director Green inquired as to who sets the summer part-time salary for each                     individual.  The Commission stated it was up to the Director to set the salary
                within the position limits.

                Summer staff has been hired for summer camps, gatehouse, snack bar and                          waterfront.  Presently the position of Waterfront Director remains open.

                Summer concerts lack monetary support from the Community.  To date only
                $1,000 has been collected.  Director Green suggested donation cans be placed
                at businesses around town for future concerts.   It was suggested that the Chamber              of Commerce could assist in approaching new businesses.   

                Direct Green suggested a “Big Screen Movie” be shown at East Windsor Park as                    an alternative for a community-wide event.


                Registrations are being received for the summer camp programs which begin
                July 11, 2006.
