Title: To authorize the Director of Recreation and Parks to enter into contract with The Righter Company for the Goodale Park Fountain Improvements project; to authorize the expenditure of $330,000.00 from the Recreation and Parks Permanent Improvements Fund; and to declare an emergency.

This ordinance is to authorize the Director of the Recreation and Parks Department to enter into contract with The Righter Company for the Goodale Park Fountain Improvements project.

Background: In 2007, the Friends of Goodale procured design and construction contract of the (at the time) new fountain feature in Goodale Park Pond. As part of the design, the fountain pumps were installed under the surface of the pond water. Since that time, the decision to install the pumps underwater has proven to be difficult to maintain and has since failed. The fountain has not been operational since 2017.

Again, working with the Friends of Goodale, a Consultant was hired (paid for by Friends group) to redesign the fountain pump system. This project will remove the existing underwater system and install a new pump system within an underground pit outside the pond edge. This will not only provide a better pump system but will also allow the capability to maintain as necessary. Following this project, the Goodale Park pond fountain and associated lighting will be once again operational.
