Park Board looking for contractors
The Park Board said the roof on the Forest Park pool house needs to be replaced. They want to replace the existing roof with the same type of material and are looking for the material and work to have a reasonable guarantee.
The Board has received one estimate at this time. That estimate will be considered at the February meeting. The Board would like to have comparative estimates.
Any interested contractors should call Park Board Treasurer John Tilley at 812-448-3935 or Board Vice President Brad Deal at 812-448-1461.
