We are now taking proposals!
As discussed at our meeting on 5/16, we are taking bid proposals for the management of Hollerwood Park. Here is the official statement:
The Multi County Recreational Board is now accepting contractor proposals regarding the management and operation of Hollerwood Offroad Park, Leeco, KY. Proposals based upon the follow parameters, can be submitted to Multi County Recreational Board by mail at P.O. Box 10, Stanton, Kentucky 40380. Deadline for proposals is noon, Wednesday, May 30th, 2018. The Multi County Recreational Board has the right to refuse or accept any proposals.
Hands on or hands off?
The board listened to discussion from Ben Tipton of Allmotive regarding the possibility of having a 3rd party manage core park services. They discussed contracting the park management out to a 3rd party group; handling ticket sales, food & vending, lawn care, sales, and vehicle maintenance. The board discussed the merits of the proposal and the pros and cons of the concept as a whole. After much debate, the board voted to outsource the management of the park to a 3rd party group for the remainder of the calendar year.
The management contract requirements will be posted on Facebook soon. We hope to have responses in by our next special meeting on May 30th.
The board heard updates from the members on the progress of the building. Internet, water, roof leaking, etc. were all talked about. Progress has been made, work continues. It's an old building, so extra care is needed.
We've been continually trying to utilize our county road crews to help deploy materials and fix some problem areas. The wet conditions have hindered some of the efforts, but we're trying to push through as best we can. We continually need support from our county leaders to ensure we have access to the tools and expertise of our road crews.
Our work hasn't been limited to the trails. We've also been working diligently on the office. We've been working on fixing leaks, upgrading the electrical systems, restoring water to the building, and getting our security system up and running. Most of this work is still in progress, so we'll keep you updated as more items are fixed.
Here's your sign
The board heard some more quotes for a focused set of signage at the park. Stop signs, rules, caution signs, and warning signs were all discussed. Signage is a bit complicated, but this is key to implementing before the park gets going.
... A More Perfect Board
The board discussed membership and quorum issues that have been recurring over the past few years. The board discussed collecting names to submit to the Judge Executive's who have members with low attendance. The list would be composed of dedicated people who are committed to opening the park and seeing it succeed.
