Brentwood Rec Center work to begin in 2014, at close to 2.9 million price tag

Brentwood Mayor Pat Kelly, in Monday’s board of aldermen meeting, read the costs for upgrading the recreation complex. It was built in 1975, and how to address issues related to its age has been the subject of two studies and approximately five years of discussions by the board of aldermen. The board agreed this year to spend  just what is needed to bring it up to current standards. Kelly said the projected expenses are in the proposed budget for this year. Roof replacement, 476,000
Mechanical system upgrades, 280,000
New sprinkler system, to bring it up to code, 250,000
New fire alarm system, 41,000
Electrical system replacement upgrade, 519,000
ADA improvements on the interior, 75,000
ADA improvements on the exterior, 100,000
Other code-related improvements, 5,000

Total: Just over 2.9 million
