The Davis County Board of Supervisors discussed turning over ownership of the Drakesville Oval to the city of Drakesville at Monday’s board meeting
Mayor Bob Sampson said Drakesville would be willing to take over ownership of the county-owned Oval, but would have trouble paying for the sidewalk improvements and the required ADA-compliant ramps.
The supervisors will ask Assistant County Attorney Ashley Walkup to write a document of vacation, and Supervisor Alan Yahnke said the supervisors would take care of the sidewalk issues.
Tom Prosapio, Construction Manager for the current courthouse handicapped accessibility project, reported the exterior work to be done on the handicap entrance this summer will require about $350,000.
Prosapio said he wanted to take $150,000 from the Courthouse Preservation Fund account for the project. That would leave approximately $200,000 to come out of county funds.
“We should be good with that,” Supervisors’ chairman Matt Greiner said.
Prosapio said the exterior part of the project will be bid out in the next two or three weeks. He is hoping the general contractor will sub-contract much of the work locally.
“We’ll be lucky if we can start work by June 15,” he said.
The supervisors also signed a contract with Midwest Coatings to seal cracks on hard-surfaced secondary roads.
