1. COUNCILMEMBERS REPORT-Update

2. ATWOOD SOFTBALL FIELD- Authorization to use the Atwood Softball Field for Girls League.
Griffin, Wellington Girls Softball League, requested the use of the Price City
Atwood Softball Field for the Wellington Girls League practices and games. The
league has over 200 girls signed up from all areas of the County with 90% of the
participant’s residents of Price. The
league needs a place to call home as the field they are currently using is no
longer acceptable. The Wellington League is very popular due to the
competition, rules and opportunities to participate in State Championships. The
league would use the field 3 times a week plus some Saturdays for games, at 5
and Councilmembers were excited
about the extra use of the field as it would extend the season after other
leagues are finished. The field requires upkeep, routine maintenance and
keeping the bright lights at a minimum during the evening hours. Mrs. Griffin
reassured the Council that her league would do their own detail on the fields,
creating the lines, placing markers, not playing too late or changing the
pitchers mound. The City does drag the fields on a regular basis during the
season. The High School field is the
field in question, which is City property but has been pledged to the High
School for scheduled seasonal use. Mrs. Griffin needs to contact Brett Cammans
for scheduling and signing a policy with the City. MOTION.
Councilmember Tatton moved that the request to use the Atwood Softball Fields for
the Wellington Girls Softball League be approved after contacting
