The board held discussions over certificates of participation (COPs) with the city for capital improvements. Parks and Recreation Director Jeff Stubblefield recommended moving forward with $2 million for seven years. The new FY2023 1/4 cent sales tax generated $527,000. The annual payment for a seven year scenario will be approximately $350,000, which would give MPR some additional revenue. According to staff, improvements are needed across the entire park system. After some discussion, the board approved to proceed and participate with the city of Maryville on COPs for $2 million with a seven year payback.
