District accepting bids for tennis court project

June 20, 2016

There’s been plenty of behind-the-scenes activity this year since district residents approved a proposal to build six state of the art tennis courts on a site near the Robert J. Kaiser Middle School and Monticello High School campus.

Architects with Savin Engineers – along with Director of Facilities and Operations John Travis and Assistant Superintendent for Business Lisa Failla – have prepared and submitted the courts’ plans and specifications, which were approved by the New York State Education Department on Thursday, June 16.

The Monticello Central School District will now begin soliciting bids for the high school tennis courts and its exterior door modifications project. All bids are due on Thursday, July 7 by 2:30 p.m. The winning bid will be announced within two weeks of the deadline. Please click here to view a PDF copy of the invitation to bid. The invitation is also available in the Sullivan County Democrat, Times Herald Records and local trade journals.

Surfacing is expected to begin seven weeks after the bid is awarded, Assistant Superintendent Failla said.  It is anticipated that construction will begin near the end of summer, continue through fall, and be completed by Nov. 30, 2016. 

In the meantime, the district will be inspecting the tennis courts located at DeHoyos Park in Monticello, as there are cracks in the playing surface that will require repair.
