The Lapel Park Board held a regular meeting at Lapel Town Hall on October 9th 2018.

With under 3 months left to finish Bulldog Park the main topic tonight was the completion of the new park.

Bill Hutton (Park Board President) had received concrete bids to concrete the main area around the concession building, the parking lot, the shelter and the basketball court.

After one of the bids came in at over $70,000 it was decided to try a different approach.

The Park Board will now table the original bids and ask for bids to concrete around the concession stand only and look at asphalting the other areas.
