&The Aberdeen City Council authorized a small works contract to repair and resurface the Sam Benn Park tennis courts in an unanimous vote Wednesday evening. The low bid of $23,007.83 was awarded to Pacific Ace LLC.
The tennis court revamp is part of an ongoing remodel of Sam Benn Park that involves removing and replanting trees and redoing a plaza. The contractor will patch 600 linear feet of cracks and resurface two tennis courts.
The remodel is part of a grant the department was awarded by the state Recreation & Conservation Office.
“This is a good deal,” said council member Kathi Hoder.
Work will begin sometime this summer, Parks and Recreation Director Karl Harris said.
