Councilman Butterworth abstained as he was absent on said <br />date. <br /> <br />Mayor Arth advised that the hearing on the tennis courts proposed for <br />the Baldwin Avenue Reservoir #3 would not be held at this scheduled <br />time. He explained that staff was not prepared to attest to the strength <br />of the roof on which the tennis courts were to be placed and that a <br />search of the records had brought this to light, He said the matter <br />would be postponed until further engineering is developed as to what <br />would be safe and advisable for the subject location, <br /> <br />Councilman Helms then MOVED that the matter be placed off the agenda and <br />staff instructed to continue to investigate through the engineering <br />sourceS available facts which would bear upon the feasibility of <br />constructing any kind of tennis court on the subject reservoir. Motion <br />seconded by Councilman Hage. <br /> <br />Prior to the roll call Councilman Butterworth stated in part that <br />Council had only been informed of this fact this evening and if there <br />were to be tennis courts on the reservoir they would be talking in <br />terms of an expenditure of over a hundred thousand dollars; that the <br />City doesn't have that kind of money and those in favor of the tennis <br />courts would be misleading themselves if they thought the City would <br />spend that kind of money - he did not think it would. He expressed <br />regret that this information had been determined on the night of the <br />hearing and offered his apology to both those in favor and those <br />opposed who had spent many hours gathering information and evidence. <br /> <br />Councilman Helms agreed in part however he submitted that it is possible <br />with some qualifications the engineers may find a way to construct some <br />courts at the subject site without such an expenditure of money. He <br />expressed the hope that the engineers may be able to determine the <br />feasibility of some alternate course. <br /> <br />Mayor Arth stated in part that both observations are well taken and <br />expressed how he felt realizing the tremendous amount of work which <br />has gone into both sides of this issue. He concluded that it would <br /> <br />2-19-74 <br /> <br />- I - <br />
