The Town of Marys­town’s ten­nis court project took an­other step for­ward dur­ing coun­cil’s meet­ing on Tues­day, Nov. 20.

Coun­cil ap­proved a ten­der bid from Mal­lay’s In­dus­trial Ser­vices Ltd. for the project at a cost of $284,018.38.

Two other bids were also re­ceived, one from Wally Drake’s Truck­ing Ltd. for $287,483.90 and an­other from Ben­nett’s Con­struc­tion for $380,952.45.

Part of the project will in­clude up­grades to the ex­ist­ing ten­nis court at the Marys­town Track and Field Com­plex. A new court will also be built at the com­plex in a dif­fer­ent area. The project will also see pre­lim­i­nary work com­pleted so an ad­di­tional court can be in­stalled at the new site some­time down the road.

The ten­nis court project makes good on a prom­ise to the Marys­town Ten­nis As­so­ci­a­tion. Two ten­nis courts were pre­vi­ously lo­cated on the site of the Marys­town YMCA. They were re­moved to make way for the fa­cil­ity.

Mal­lay’s bid was higher than the amount bud­geted for the project. Coun­cil ap­proved $217,000 for the work this past sum­mer.
