L-P discusses how to allow public access to sports complex

The La Salle-Peru Township High School board on Wednesday discussed plans for allowing public access to the new sports complex after it opens.

“We’re in total support of opening the complex to the public,” Superintendent Steven Wrobleski said. “We’re just working on the logistics for security and weekend access.”

Wrobleski said the district was partnering with the city ofLa Salle to open and close the gates of the facility. Details of its availability will be released to the public after they are finalized, Wrobleski said.

Board member Tony Sparks said the complex is near to being finished. He also shared the board building and grounds committee’s recommendation that the district apply for a $250,000 matching grant that would be used to replace windows throughout the school.

The board approved the tentative tax levy for 2014. No increase is expected in the property tax rate from L-P. Wrobleski said the rate is expected to decrease to $1.9062 from the 2013 rate of $1.9162 per $100 of equalized assessed valuation.

“It speaks well to Mr. Wrobleski’s stewardship and cost-cutting measures,” board member Peter Meier said.

Approved the official name for the West Gym as the Dr. AJ Sellett Memorial Gymnasium.

Approved an order for gravel pads at the soccer field bleachers and player bench areas for $4,615.60.

Approved an order for extra concrete around the track and the installation of a new gas pad for $14,487.79.

Approved an order for material testing done by Midwest Testing for $20,966.

Does anyone else wonder how these things were left out of the orig. contract.
This thing has not yet been accepted by the board. The site, as yet does not belong to the district. Final payment has not yet been tendered. Final inspection has not yet been done and a punch list finished. The contractors are still on site, so who,s oversight was this and who should pay for it?
