Trussville awards bid for field lighting
By Gary Lloyd
TRUSSVILLE — The Trussville City Council on Tuesday awarded a bid to light the fields behind Hewitt-Trussville Middle School.
The winning bid was $93,318 and will be done by Titan Electric, Inc.
The Trussville City Board of Education last Monday approved an intergovernmental agreement with the city of Trussville for the use of the fields.
The agreement approved last Monday will allow Trussville Parks and Recreation to use the fields behind Hewitt-Trussville Middle School, which are former soccer and band fields. The city plans to use the fields for soccer, flag football and lacrosse. Trussville Parks and Recreation Director David Vinson said there are 850 kids in the soccer program, which uses just four fields. Flag football and lacrosse programs continue to grow, he said.
The city will pay for maintenance and for the bills in exchange for the use of the fields.
“I think it’s a win-win situation,” Vinson said last week.
The resolution the council approved Tuesday also includes an alternate of lighting the baseball fields behind the Trussville Public Library.
