City approves improvements to pool, tennis facilities

New paint, repaired cracks, new roof – it’s all incoming for Russellville Parks and Recreation pool and tennis facilities.

It was a big night for Parks and Rec March 7 at the Russellville City Council meeting. The council voted to repair the pool and tennis building roofs for $18,120; paint the pool and tennis court building exteriors (about $12K); repair cracks and resurface the tennis courts; and re-seal the pool deck.

In addition to facility maintenance, the council also approved for Parks and Rec the purchase of a new lawnmower.

The city also:

–       declared a slide at the City Lake Park surplus

–       promoted two to Firefighter II

–       declared a vacancy for police dispatcher and hired from the Civil Service Board list

–       accepted resignation from Patrol Officer Dustin Terry and declared the vacancy
