July 17, 2017

The addendum is an additional financial term to the agreement.  In addition to the annual payments set forth in the initial agreement, the school corporation will pay a one-time payment in the amount of $25,000 to the park on or before September 1st in recognition of the significant improvements to be made at the baseball park.

Estimated cost of the reconstruction is $50,000 with the school paying half and the other half being raised through donations.
