The Brazil City Park Board met Wednesday night at City Hall to discuss monthly business matters.
For the third month, no financial report was available because the board does not have an approved budget for 2008. The delay is caused by the city auditing all financial records.
The board did sign contracts with Christmas in the Park, the Clay County YMCA, the Clay County Humane Society and a concert band.
A bid for a mowing contract was awarded to Mullenix Lawn Care, the same company that has been mowing the parks for the past two years.
Local Optimist Club member Charles Hear asked the board for permission to hold remote-controlled model sailboat races in the ponds in Craig Park. The Optimist Club would provide the boats.
The board tabled the request until they check with the Department of Natural Resources to make sure the boats would not damage the waterways.
Habitat for Humanity requested to hold a 5K run/ 1K walk at Craig Park on April 19, and the board approved the request providing the cross country course will be ready by then.
The board turned down a request from the Southern Indiana Racing Association for go-kart racing at Forest Park this fall.
The Park Board will meet again on Wednesday, April 2, at 7 p.m., in the Council Chambers of City Hall.
