With the 14th Annual Great Ogeechee Seafood Festival a month away, the pavilion at J.F. Gregory Park twice took center stage at Tuesday night’s Richmond Hill City Council meeting.
First, Parks and Recreation Director Harvey Lashley told council members roads inside the park to the new pavilion will be closed to traffic through Sept. 29 while a new cover is installed.
Later, council members unanimously approved a last-minute measure to expand electrical capacity to the pavilion, which provides cover for numerous community events ranging from the Seafood Fest to the Pumpkin Patch to the annual Easter Xtravaganza.
Work on the electrical upgrade is expected to begin immediately after the council approved a bid of $38,577 from Richmond Hill-based C.S. Hurd Electrical to upgrade the pavilion’s system from 400 to 600 amps.
At least $12,500 of the cost will be covered by the Richmond Hill-Bryan County Chamber of Commerce, City Manager Chris Lovell said Tuesday night.
