Village Board discusses future of tennis courts

The deteriorating tennis courts at Summit Park were the main topic of discussion during Monday's night Village Board meeting.

"Sooner or later, it's going to be a liability," said Public Works Director Greg Engeset. "Something has to be done."

Engeset estimated the cost to fix the cracks were $80,000 and at the same time to start over from scratch would be a cost of $25-$30,000 per court. (Summit currently has four).

Some of the Board members questioned spending that amount of money on an item that besides matches from the School District hardly gets used.

Engeset said the Village could explore grant possibilities to help out with costs, but for right now, his recommendation would be to build two new ones. That idea will be discussed among further ones when the Parks, Recreation and Development committee will meet 5:30 p.m. Tuesday at Summit Park.
