6 - The Perkins Journal, Thursday, June 14, 1973 A ten-acre park, with two regulation size baseball:kdia- mends, picnic facilities and a swimming pool was the sub- Ject of the Parks and Recrea- tion Committee meeting Mon- day night. On hand to assist the com- mittee in planning the project, were representatives from the Central Oklahoma Economic Development District (COEDD) and the Oklahoma Community Affairs Planning agency OCAP. Carl Cummings of OCAP said Perkins would be elegible for government assistance in pay- ing for a park but the committee would have to have some form of plan, and it would have to be approved by the people. "The funds would be provid- ed by the Bureau of Outdoor Re- creation (BOR)," he said, "The government would put up 50 percent and the town would put up 50 percent to pay for the park.*' Cummings said Perkins per- centage of the money could be raised through a sales tax or bond issue, but payments for the recreational facility would be left with the people. "After they (the people)ap- proved the plan, they may want to retire the bonds by using money charged for admission to the swimming pool to pay for the maintenanc~ of the park and pay off the bonds.*' SALE STARTS THURSDAY JUNE 14 SALE ENDS SATURDAY, JUNE t6 - 12 NOON BARN PAINT Keeps your barn bright longer Designed for rough Southwestern weather Lasting protection for barns, metal roofs, fences and cotton trailers.

He said one avenue of ap- proach to payment for the park was to levy a one cent sales tax. Regardless of how it's paid for, Cummings said the town must have approved at least a general plan for their park in order to qualify for BOa aid. To do this, the committee should present to the public an idea of what they envision for the park and a cost esti- mate, the people can vote to approve, amend or disapprove the plan. Cummings said any qualified engineer can lay out the plan, but it would cost about seven percent of the total project for his time. "If you estimate a project costing $100,000," Cummings said, "an engineer will charge you seven percent of that to draw up the cluding that lines and the swi Cummings would handle the cost of the that an engineer plans realizes jects he would the project is If the will be the for the job.
