Council addresses unexpected costs

In the regular Madera City Council meeting held last Wednesday, council members listened to proposals from the Parks Department, as well as the Public Works department addressing several unanticipated issues requiring budget amendments. 

Parks and Community Services Director Joseph Herbert and Public Works Department Administrative Analyst David Austin brought to the attention of the council proposals requiring the budget amendments needed by each department. 

After a request to authorize a resolution for local assistance specified grants in which the city was awarded $500,000 from the California Parks and Recreation Department to be used for trail upgrades at the Lions Town and Country Park, Herbert brought to the council’s attention the unanticipated demolition cost of the concession building/office structure located at the Zero Gravity Skate Park, located at 920 N. Gateway, adjacent to the  Rotary Park. Herbert presented images of the structure depicting the state of its condition.
