(LAGRANGE) - A proposed splash pad, handicap access and playground equipment for young children at LaGrange Town Park could cost around $315,000.
That was the report the committee gave to the LaGrange Town Board Monday evening. They were hoping to have the board award the contract so equipment can be ordered, but Town Attorney Bill Eberhard pumped the brakes, saying Indiana’s public purchase statute requires sealed bids for expenditures greater than $150,000.
Eberhard says he feels they could still keep the project on track and on schedule.
Clerk-Treasurer Laurie Miller says they have funding for the project lined up. Possible funding sources include a grant, a crowd funding matching grant, funds already on hand and a possible loan from the town’s rainy day fund.
The Town Board also discussed possibly closing a portion of Mountain Street in the park for safety’s sake.
