Equipment totaling about $12,000 in cost is set to be installed at Tama's new Skateboard Park on Monday, Nov. 4.

Tama Mayor Dan Zimmerman said personnel from American Ramp Company, Joplin, Mo., will do the work at a cost of $1,200 which includes a previous supervision amount of $500.

Originally, Tama city workers were to do the work but will not be available for the planned time.

Zimmerman said under this plan responsibility for correct installation falls to the company and the city should not be held responsible if equipment is installed improperly.

Phase I includes ramps, a "wedge", quarter pipe and more.

The new facility at 9th and McClellan has recently had a cement parking lot and sidewalk poured and an enclosure fence is under construction along the west side.
