CLEARWATER – Improvements and repairs are in the future for parks and recreation facilities in Palm Harbor.

Pinellas County Commissioners unanimously approved an amendment Nov. 19 to the funding agreement with Palm Harbor Community Services Agency for several small capital improvement projects.

The Palm Harbor Parks and Recreation Department requested that the county allow it to use $77,810 in leftover funds from a 2011 request of $1 million of Penny for Pinellas revenue for lighting of athletic fields at Sunderman Athletic Complex and Putnam Park.

The Parks and Recreation Department spent $922,190 for field lighting for six baseball/softball fields, one multi-purpose field, two batting cages and sand volleyball courts at Sunderman, and four baseball fields, one multipurpose field and two tennis courts at Putnam Park.

Pinellas County attorney’s office and the Office of Budget and Management reviewed the list of proposed capital projects from Palm Harbor and found that they qualify for funding under the rules for Penny for Pinellas.

“The expenditures are mostly related to the preservation of buildings and other facilities, under the operating agreement with PHSCA,” according to a memo from Paul Cozzie, director of the county’s Parks and Recreation Department.

The list of projects includes:

• Replacement of a retaining wall behind the center’s campus with “a sturdy concrete wall” and removal of current rotted wood

• Correcting a drainage issue at the Sunderman Complex in the dugouts of two baseball fields by raising the concrete flooring to pitch water drainage

• Replacement of one maintenance truck with more than 100,000 miles on it

• Repairing the roof on an ancillary building at the center’s campus

• Repairing the roof at the Putnam Building

• Repairing the roof at the center’s main building.
