Milton awards $19K contract to resurface tennis courts

After staff reported more than 500 feet of cracks in the tennis courts of the former Milton Country Club, the Milton City Council awarded a $19,809 contract to Signature Tennis Courts Inc. to resurface four courts of the facility.

The United States Tennis Association provided a $7,000 grant to help pay for the project, and it was hoped an additional $2,800 would be forthcoming from the USTA, Parks and Recreation Director Jim Cregge said in an agenda memo.

Project specifications call for the contractor to sand, scrape and pressure wash the courts; patch and level low spots; repair all cracks on the playing surface; grind down previously built-up resurfacing paint along the fence lines; lay a manufactured crack repair system over all cracks; install one coat of acrylic resurface, and apply two color coats of paint and one coat of blended playing lines.

Milton paid $5 million to buy the 137-acre country club in 2018 and is converting it to a public facility.
