SYRACUSE — Scheduling conflicts kept the Syracuse Parks Foundation board members away from the monthly meeting, scheduled for 6 p.m. Tuesday, July 28. The meeting was cancelled due to a lack of members need to fulfill the assembly quorum.
Superintendent Chad Jonsson advised he would be in contact with the board via email for a vote needed regarding the central air system at the Syracuse Community Center.
In the brief gathering, copies of an updated financial report and the quote were accepted from Collier’s Heating and Air Conditioning by Syracuse Parks and Recreation board members to purchase two new air conditioning units that will replace the north end system that has been in operation since the opening of the community center in 2002. The $32,992 will cover the cost to disconnect and remove the two existing 15 ton units, as well as installation and cost of labor.
Jonsson reported to The Mail-Journal Monday, Aug. 3, the parks foundation members agreed to accept Collier’s proposal for the air system stating, “all monies will come from the foundation,” and “work will begin in the next couple weeks,” with no interruption to community center programs.
The board is scheduled to meet again at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 25.
