The rest of the courts at the Longboat Key Public Tennis Center are on the road to getting new fencing.
Courts 7-10 have already been replaced as they were deemed in the worst condition.
The remaining courts came in over budget, so town commissioners were asked to transfer an additional $80,000 from the unappropriated fund balance within the Sarasota County Infrastructure Surtax Fund to cover the expected cost of the replacements.
“Other than the newly installed sections on courts 7-10 completed last summer, the fencing at the tennis center is in poor condition and should be replaced,” the staff memo said.
No timeline was provided for when fencing would be replaced.
