    City spending stimulus money on new tennis courts

    By AMANDA RICKER Chronicle Staff Writer

    The Bozeman City Commission authorized spending $49,140 in federal stimulus money on Monday to install new tennis courts at Bogert Park.

    The new courts are likely to be ready in June, Parks and Cemetery Department Superintendent Thom White said.

    The commission approved a contract with Dermco-LaVine Construction in Minneapolis for the courts during a noon meeting on Monday. The company will put in rubber-tiled courts at the park, located along South Church Avenue.

    White said the out-of-state company got the contract because there were no local companies that could do the work.

    The money spent on the tennis courts is part of $621,000 in stimulus money that the city received through the Montana Reinvestment Act.
