Second phase of La Salle park out for bid

Posted by wlpo on May 7, 2014

One day you will be watching a senior league baseball game at La Salle Rotary Park.

The second phase of the park includes a ball diamond, parking, lighting, and walking paths.  Engineers with HMG Group Tuesday night explained the costs to the city council.  The base bid is about $750,000.  Extras like more drainage, more lights, and batting cages would add $150,000 to.the price.

A state grant is paying up to $400,000 with the city responsible for a match.  Mayor Jeff Grove says the Rotary Park Foundation is raising money for the match.

City officials will have a better idea of the cost after the bids are opened May 27.
