The Avon Town Council met Aug. 10. Meetings can be viewed on the town’s social media accounts. The council normally meets at 7 p.m. the second and fourth Thursday of the month at the Avon Town Hall, 6570 E. U.S. 36. The next scheduled meeting is Aug. 24. Beginning in Sept. the council will meet the first and third Thursday for the rest of the year.

What happened: An asset donation agreement between Avon and the Avon Junior Athletic Association (AJAA) was approved. The effective date for this agreement is Aug. 21 with a closing date of Oct. 1. The time between the effective date and the closing date allows staff time to complete the transition.

What this means: Among the assets AJAA has donated to the town are 16.356 acres of park property located near CR 100 S. and CR 625 E., easement rights to access the park property, athletic equipment, office furniture and equipment, and other similar tangible property owned by AJAA, or used in connection with the operation of AJAA programs. AJAA granted Avon an exclusive perpetual license to use the name Avon Junior Athletic Association and the abbreviation of AJAA.

What happened: An amendment to the contract agreement between the town and Context Design, a landscape architect company, was approved for additional services.

What this means: The amended contract adjusts the work scope of Winton Meadow, Burnett Park and new efforts for White Lick Creek Greenway, Avon Family Sports Park, and Avon Pickleball Pocket Park.  These modifications to the original contract will result in an additional $44,500 in fees for the add-on services.

What happened: An agreement with Holiday Outdoor Décor for the purchase of a Christmas tree to be used at the town’s annual holiday tree lighting was approved. The parks department was given the go-ahead to purchase the tree.

What this means: This tree is a 34-foot animated panel tree with a four-foot snow burst topper.  The 38-foot Christmas tree has a garland and LED color changing lights. The cost of this tree is $71,598. The tree is expected to be delivered around the first of Nov.

What happened: A bid of $141,380 from Rejuvtec was approved for pavement preservation in 2024.

What this means: The project was advertised for public bid and Rejuvtec was the only company to submit a bid. This is done annually and Rejuvtec normally is the only bidder so only one responsive bid was expected.
