Body

BACKGROUND / RATIONALE:

The New Braunfels Parks Foundation has funding available for the Fischer Park Nature Center. The Foundation and staff agree that a shade structure over the Archeology Dig would be beneficial to children and parents who frequent the play feature. The shade will make the area more comfortable to use and protect families from harmful sun rays.

 

The cost to purchase and install the shade structure is $42,000. Fun Abounds of Southern Texas is a member of the Texas BuyBoard cooperative, which satisfies the city’s bidding requirement. The City will contract with the vendor and oversee the project. Once complete, the City will request full reimbursement from the New Braunfels Parks Foundation.
