Ross commissioners Monday voted to buy equipment for two recreation facilities, and moved forward on plans for two others.

A new, larger scoreboard will be purchased for Herb Field, the baseball field at the municipal building/community center. The scoreboard is expected to cost $14,600 or less, and will be purchased from Institutional Specialties.

“Thank you, commissioners, for considering a new scoreboard for Herb Field,” said Randy Miller, head baseball coach at North Hills High School.

Patrick Bower, president of the West View/Ross Athletic Association, said the association also supported the new scoreboard, and said it would be “well-appreciated and well-used.”

Commissioners also voted to buy “tot lot” playground equipment for Scharmyn Park from Sports & Recreation Association at a cost not to exceed $11,600.

The township will use grant money for both projects.

In a related matter, commissioners also appointed Gateway Engineers as the project engineer for improvements to Evergreen and Herge parks.

Eloise Peet, parks and recreation director, said Gateway will survey the parks, a requirement from the state Department of Conservation and Natural Resources because state grant money will be used for projects in the park.

Commissioners also approved the site plan for a one-story commercial building at 702 Rochester Road. James Laird will operate his tree service out of the building. The area is now a vacant lot.
