Two sealed quotes were received for the project that will include a 4 foot high white, vinyl picket fence.  The project is being created as a barrier between the all-inclusive playground and 8th Street and not as containment.  Park Superintendent Mike Hite said, “We want to keep the kids safe.”

Both companies offered two options: D-Mark Fence of Plymouth quoted $7,153 for a Carlisle style and $6,539 for the Lennox style while Lowes Home Improvements of Plymouth quoted $5,671 for the Carlisle style and $5,925 for the Lennox style.

Hite said the Community Foundation granted them $6,500 for the project.

The park board wanted to get the fencing installed yet this year so the park superintendent was given the authority to move forward after reviewing the quotes and selecting the low quote with the option preference.
