City Council Regular
Meeting Date: 11/07/2018  
Subject:    Consider Resolution 18-111 Approving Playground Equipment Expenditures for 2019 Misc. Park Improvements
Submitted For: Tim Himmer From: Sarah Greene, Administrative Assistant II

INTRODUCTION
City staff is seeking Council approval to purchase playground equipment for miscellaneous 2019 improvements planned at Towerview Park.
DISCUSSION
The Park & Recreation Commission has identified improvements to be made at Towerview Park in 2019 which will be paid for by miscellaneous park improvement funds allocated in the 2019 budget. A concept for the new layout and playground equipment is attached.

GameTime is currently offering a discount on specific play structure products purchased in 2018, similar to the equipment purchased for Boulevard Park and the Soccer Complex in 2016. In order to secure discounted pricing for the materials, the City must place the order no later than November 30, 2018 with delivery to occur by December 31, 2018. The total cost of this equipment has been separated into material and labor portions which allows the City to realize sales tax savings. As such, an additional $48,147 will be required in 2019 for the installation of the equipment as well as a concrete border, shelter pad and base pad. At this time, Council is asked to consider the discounted material and delivery costs totaling $62,166.23.
RECOMMENDATION
Staff recommends the City Council approve Resolution 18-111, amending the Park Improvement Fund budget and authorizing the expenditure of $62,166.23 for the purchase of playground equipment for Towerview Park.

BUDGET IMPACT:
The 2019 Park Improvement Fund includes $200,000 for misc. park enhancements, which have been identified for neighborhood park investments. The requested 2018 expenditures for Towerview Park total $62,166.23, with the balance of $48,147 for installation coming due in 2019.
