Council considers new Floyd Gwin Park building
Odessa City Council will consider an offer of $ 416,500 from Onyx Contractors for the construction of a new toilet / concession building at Floyd Gwin Park on Tuesday.
The facility would be part of the park’s new Little League Baseball complex already under construction, according to the proposal submitted by Odessa Parks and Recreation Director Steve Patton.
The proposed building would have four toilets and two sinks in the ladies’ restroom, while there would be two urinals, two toilets and two sinks in the men’s restroom. In addition, the entire north side of the building will be dedicated to concession operations with two six-foot-wide service windows.
According to their Tuesday agenda, the board is also expected to approve Odessa Fire Rescue’s request to spend $ 163,979.97 to purchase three Stryker Power Load and Cot systems that will be installed in 3 ambulances already purchased. The devices include a cot and a stair chair to provide care to 911 patients.
The board will also need to approve the purchase of two Chevy 2500 trucks for Odessa Rescue’s training division at a cost of $ 143,754. These trucks are often used to pull EUV trailers, tire trailers and transport foam to emergency scenes and during events.
