Stott’s Paving to resurface PCHS track, tennis courts

Published 10:44pm Tuesday, March 12, 2013

Stott’s proposal will include tearing up all existing asphalt, putting down new gravel, packing the stone, putting down new asphalt and restriping lines.

The project involves not only the oval of the track but also repairs to the long jump and shot put areas, as well as work on the drainage basin.

The project proposal built in $10,000 in case there are issues with unstable soils and $15,000 in contingency funds for unforeseen issues that might arise.

“I can ensure you we made sure we got bids that were comparing apples to apples,” Miller said. “Whether it will last 21 years or not, I don’t know, but I feel like we are going to get a good, quality product from a local company.”

Board member Rick Covil motioned to accept the Stott Paving bid, but refrained from putting up new fencing until after the project work determines if contingency funds are needed.

If the contingency funds are not depleted, Covil motioned for the board to move forward with putting in place new fencing around the track.

The board unanimously approved the decision.
