Park board approves digital sign, outdoor seating bids

Seating to be paid with donor funding; sign to be operational in two months


ROCHELLE — Flagg-Rochelle Community Park District commissioners approved bids for outdoor seating and an electronic sign for the recreation center during Monday’s board meeting.

Board commissioners approved a bid from Doyle Signs amounting $23,980 for a digital sign near the front entrance of the recreation center at 802 Jones Road in Rochelle. Executive director Jackee Ohlinger said the sign should be operational in approximately two months.

Commissioners also approved a bid from Doty & Sons amounting $16,380 for outdoor seating at the recreation center. Ohlinger said the project will be funded through a generous donation from Chuck Stocking, who donated to the park district in honor of Bud and Kay Stocking. The seating will be located primarily along the west patio outside the community center.
