Town of Shelby chips in $10K towards basketball courts at Butts Park
SHELBY – The Town of Shelby is contributing $10,000 towards two full-size basketball courts at Butts Park in Medina.
Pictured from left include Village Trustee Jess Marciano, Trustee Tim Elliott, Town Supervisor Scott Wengewicz, Mayor Mike Sidari and Trustee Marguerite Sherman.
Shelby’s money comes from the town’s allotment of the federal American Rescue Plan Act.
The money will go towards four basketball posts, backboards and nets.
The village is putting in two full-size basketball courts at the park. It approved a construction bid on Monday evening to pay Super Seal Sealcoating of Penfield $122,319 for the courts.
The village will use $110,000 in money from the federal American Rescue Plan Act. The board also can use $13,200 from the Medina Sports Boosters towards the project.
The bid from Super Seal did not include four backboards, two for each court. That is another $9,846, putting the total cost for the courts at about $132,000.
