Edie Keller informed the Commission that Terra Care, our landscape subcontractor, is looking into irrigation problems that are causing the muddy area in the east sector of Blue Goose Park. She also advised the Commission that the emergency standby phone number for landscape issues is 925-382-5346. We will be applying for the District Volunteer Award for David Juarez the Eagle Scout who installed the memorial stone at Veterans Park.
Chair Rodrigues requested of Edie Keller and Craig Bronzan that all of the Parks and Recreation staff be nominated for the CPRS District III Award. He would like to know the status of the bocce courts at Veterans Park. Roger Stromgren replied that he would call the Eagle Scout who was going to do the project and see where he is on it. If he will not complete it, then Parks and Recreation will finish the job.
A representative for the Senior Club, Barbara Russell-Cambra, was present and informed the Commission that the seniors have decided to make the Ice Cream Social a free event, and that the Senior Club liked Commissioner Lind as their substitute liaison in representation of the Park and Recreation Commission. She also commented that the bocce court may not need to be fixed, as there is no room to walk on either side anyway, and that maybe we could just fill it in and put a bench there.
