Briefs of the Council | New barbecue and picnic table on the menu | Oberon Reviews
OBERON Council will install an accessible barbecue, picnic table, bench and additional concrete path to the existing shelter structure adjacent to the accessible washrooms at Skate Park in Oberon Common.
Council has allocated a budget of up to $ 16,500 from the common fund to complete the installation.
The existing shelter at the Oberon Common adjacent to the new accessible toilets at Skate Park currently has only one picnic table installed, as it was originally proposed to install the accessible toilets inside the shelter.
Since the toilets were installed outside the shelter and are now complete, it is possible to complete the installations of the current shelter with the installation of an accessible barbecue, additional paths and a picnic table and additional accessible bench.
The accessible single king size stainless steel gas grill will cost $ 7,100; picnic table setting (same as currently installed) $ 2950; platform bench (same as currently installed) $ 3,300; additional hiking trail (between the existing trail and the refuge) $ 600; the installation will cost $ 1,200 and the contingency of $ 1,350 brings the total to $ 16,500.
