By the end of June, five new public tennis courts will be built at Perrysburg’s Rotary Community Park, city officials said.
“There a demand for new tennis courts in the city,” said Perrysburg Councilman Joe Lawless.
But the only thing missing at the park will be the lights.
City officials originally planned on building lit courts but nixed the idea after lights would have driven up the project by an additional $10,000 to $15,000, said city public service director Jon Eckel.
The city awarded the construction contract worth $153,547 to the company Henry W. Bergman, Inc., which was the lowest out of eight bidders.
Those costs include drainage work at the park, fencing, asphalt, and other expenses, Mr. Eckel said.
The Genoa construction company will also get paid an additional $12,000 in fees.
The highest construction bid was $192,000.
The city approved the construction project as part of its spending plan for 2012.
To help cover the cost, the city received $21,600 from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources.
The state funding requires the city complete the project by June 30.
