Meier will call Feige and see when it would work for him to come. Update – Feige attended the meeting and went over pricing with the board members and information about how their product works. They are going to get the board an estimate on what it will cost.

New Business:

The Town ‘N Kountry 4-H Club Blue Group attended the board meeting to go over different things they would like the town to consider helping out with for the youth in Letcher.  

1.  Discussion was held on adding a surveillance camera onto the side of the community center building to monitor the play equipment that is being vandalized. The board will be checking in to see what the cost will be to add another camera.  

2. Discussion was also held on the front gate of the park area between the community center and Jake’s. The front fence has been broken and bent in a couple of spots. The board agrees that a gate could be added. J. Fouberg was going to get a quote on putting in a new fence with a gate and report that back to the board.  

3. Discussion was held on the back board of the basketball hoop that has been broken at Rossy Park.  They are wanting to know if that can get it fixed. A motion was made by Gromer, seconded by Larson, carried, to approve to purchase a new backboard in the spring. J. Fouberg was going to have the kids take it to the next board meeting to see if some of the parents can help to get it installed.  

4. Discussion was held on the request that the 4-H kids would like to have a volleyball net installed at Rossy Park. The town will purchase a net in the spring, and the kids will install it at that time.  

5. Discussion was held on the request that the 4-H kids would like to have an ice skating area. Different ideas of locations and how to get it set up were discussed. They have a kit that can be purchased for the ice skating rink. A motion was made by Gromer, seconded by Larson, carried, to approve to purchase the ice skating rink kit. The board approved to purchase the kit. The location that was decided on to put up the ice skating area was at the ball park in the outfield. The 4-H group will get a committee set up to work on getting the ice skating area set up, and they are also responsible for taking it down in the spring.  

6. Discussion was also held on the Parade of Lights in Letcher that is scheduled for Friday, December 8th, at 6:00 p.m. After the parade, they will be having a free will supper at the community center. They will also have fire pits and a s’mores tent set up on Main Street.
