Berlin tennis courts to be renovated


New tennis courts coming to Berlin. Coast Dispatch reporting the Berlin Town Council approved a nearly $300,000 project to refurbish the courts at Stephen Decatur Park. The project is mostly funded by a grant, although there was a $17,000 budget shortfall that needs to be filled. Town Administrator Laura Allen noting that the town could make up most of the difference by foregoing coating the fencing vinyl, but that could result in a rusty fence around a nice court. She recommended a budget amendment to cover the funding gap. The plan was approved 4-0, there is no timeline for work to begin.
